I don't think so if you order on-line, but you can do it over the phone.

They must've had a return. And someone must've bought it as fast as they put it up, because its not on there now.

I wouldn't give up on finding the white one if you really want it. Like I said, they had it at the outlet for a short period. I wouldn't be surprised if one popped up on Yoox.
I can't find the dome shaped bag - but I can get this one. Comments? It is a large bag - but I'm uncertain about the horsebit on the front.

i don't really see that... they're two completely different things imo.... i can't really explain it, but the cerf is a TOTE...and the blondie is a BOSTON bag... two different things, imo...and i think the cerf is a little bigger, and more "square" whereas the blondie is more "rectangular," no?? i can't really see them functioning as the same thing... i can picture the cerf being used as a business bag...the blondie is more of a handbag.

^^^Just because its called a boston doesn't mean its a boston. Gucci has like 7 different bags they call bostons, only a few of them are TRUE bostons. I can see where she gets the comparison, it does look very much like the cerf, except for the handles.....it doesn't have tote handles.

Thanks - I agree. This one looks and reminds me of a prada bowling bag from a few seasons ago. Its going back to Saks!

be careful -- I've heard about authenticity problems with Ashford.

I agree. The bag may be fake. The GG's are "silver chrome" and I don't think Gucci did it in chrome. Plus, the leather looks funny.

RE: Ashford

Wow, I did not know that! I knew that they increased the "original retail" prices, but had no idea their bags might be fakes. They "appear" to be such a reputable site. Guess I won't be checking them out anymore.

No- after seeing it in person, I didn't love the black enamel with the gold lining. I wish I could have found it with the solid gold gg's.

Imo..I felt that the two bags, while not identical, appeared similiar to me.

Both the blondie and the cerf are squarish bags though of course they are not the exact shape. Both are black, have long handles which can function as shoulder straps, and there's the metal logo in the front amidst the black leather.

I think it really depends on the bag owner as to what they are going to use the bags for. Some people will use the Blondie as a business bag, simply because of its elegant design, while people who buy the cerf may not necessarily use it as just a business bag

And when I think of Gucci Bostons..I can only think of dome-shaped bags(though I know that's not exactly a correct picture). I do agree that the cerf and the blondie are different in the sense that they are different types of handbags made by different brands, but as I pointed out above, I do see similarities in their design.
