Hope it's okay to be posting this, but Hayden-Harnett is hosting a really fun contest right now where you have to submit a video featuring some of your products. The entry with the most hits by January 15th will be the winner. I put together a video and I'd love it if you guys could check it out! Two of my Hayden-Harnett bags are the starts of the film, it's a silly silent crime movie.

i just watched it

good luck!

i have the havana in eggplant and i think i would act in much the same way if it had been nabbed :p

on another note hayden harnett has been having lots of sample sales on their website since November...

i bought a green across the body bag for my sister for christmas during one of the sales..

i'm not seeing it (or the style) on their website any more but it is the satchel/across the body version of this:

Gorgeous! That's one of the... Sao Paolo styles, right? It's a beautiful shade of green. I'm sure your sister will love it.

You're right about the sales! I feel like every couple of weeks I'm getting an e-mail about another Hayden-Harnett sale/sample sale. It's making it really hard for me to resist spending! I kind of want to pick up another Havana, either in Grey Zeus or in Red. They're such a functional style.

^^yes i think it is the Sao Paolo style...
the green leather is very nice.. the color is awesome in person ... very rich...

i'll try to snap a pic of the actual bag sometime soon before i wrap it up..

and the havana is such a great bag... you can throw it around, use it everyday... very versatile...
and i love all the colors... i say go for the red :p
some of the metallics it comes in look quite nice as well...
tough decision...
but you could definitely get a great deal on it if you keep your eyes peeled with all these sales going on..

I'm still kicking myself for not getting the Havana in Lagoon. My mom wanted that one really badly as well. It was such a vibrant color! If I manage to win the contest, hopefully I can get her a Havana as the prize. I can't wait to see what colors they come out with next season, too.

There's also a bag that they show in their Spring 2009 preview video right at the beginning. The black one with the diagonal zipper along the front. I can not wait to get more details on that bag, it looks amazing!

oh yeah that bag looks like a nice tote as well...

what color was the lagoon? an aqua?

some of the shoes don't look too bad... have they always done shoes..?
i tend to be so fixated on the bags that i don't really venture a whole lot further... :p

I'm hoping it comes in some great colors... and that they have some fabulous sample sales soon after so that I can afford to get one!

They started doing boots this season and I've heard really positive reviews about those. Everyone says they're incredibly comfortable and the shafts aren't impossibly narrow, which is a plus. The flats, sandals, etc, are going to be launching soon though!

I've attached the passport cover in lagoon for an example of the color.

great color
i like that it's not too crazily bright like some of the aqua blues can be..
that almost looks like the robin's egg/tiffany blue.. which i love :p

i have muscular calves so that's good news about the boots for sure...

i was actually looking at the wallets a bit today..
and am now sort of kicking myself for not getting one during the sample sale

they are $170 but were down at $134 and $117 or something earlier today...

i liked the metallic sort of ones...

the bronze anaconda and the platinum lizard are the ones that caught my eye especially...

Ooh, I love the bronze anaconda! I'm a big fan of metallics, too. How much were they during the sample sale? I made a strategic decision to ignore all sample sale e-mails from HH for a while because I figured it was best to avoid temptation. Maybe they'll mark the wallets down even more in the Wishful sale as it gets closer to Christmas?

Have you seen the Spring 2009 lookbook? I just checked it out today and got some more details on that black bag I mentioned and some of the other styles. And apparently they're also launching a swimwear collection?

^^i might have gotten it in the mail.. don't remember though...

the anaconda one was cheaper than the lizard.. the lizard was definitely $134 and i think the anaconda was less than $120 but more than $110.. don't remember the exact price...

Yeah, that makes sense, the Anaconda is available in the current wishful sale for around 120. But it may go down even further in the next few days. Apparently they're doing 25 reductions/new items every day. There are a couple of small things I'd probably pick up but I don't feel like paying for shipping and the Canadian dollar is so weak right now that it would end up being a really silly purchase.

Don't worry, you're not the only one! I'm a total addict. And they just sent another e-mail out, too... 30% off boots!
