Jun- the tag on mine that was the same as Nicole Richie's was $1220 (medium size plain black w/shiny gold hardware) which is what I paid for it. all the ones on ebay are fake unfortunately I still can't believe I returned mine, I could KICK myself now

yeah don't expect to ever pay under $1000 for an authentic nightingale. the only exception to this has been a used medium authentic ivory that sold on ebay for $750.

other authentic givenchy bags always go for a steal. a white leather riccardo with black lining just sold for $325 or something, and i've seen the clarabelle go from $160-250.

the only simple leather one right now is the thin strap in black (or brown or purple?) with gold hardware (nicole richie's) since the thick strap w/zipper was discontinued.

this one is $1280 in medium and $1660 in maxi. (such a drastic increase for a few more inches of leather )

exactly, I don't think the original price was that high though. still looking for the receipt or tags, no idea where they are

I'm debating whether to hold out for the black OR buy the brown one...what are my odds of getting the Nicole Richie one again, are they gone forever everywhere? Alejandro the brown one I told you I can get w/the two shoulder straps - is that version made *after* Nicole Richie's version came out or before???

^ i don't know about nicole's. if barneys is sold out nationwide i don't know if it's possible to find any more.

the brown one with 2 straps was made before hers came out. it was s/s 07 and the one nicole has is from this season. i would go with the brown

here's some pics - still go w/the brown?!? :p Do you get a more casual vibe w/the brown than the black? The black w/gold seems more classy or something to me....though this brown seems to be a rich color. It doesn't seem to drape as well as the newer leather though, maybe because it's pebbled and thicker?

I do love the S/S 08 version of the Nightingale Bag!
It looks younger with all the Polka dots.
