Congrats! Very good purchases. I especially love both of the wallet. I'd been eyeing the second one, but in the other color combination. Good thing it didn't go on sale! I'm about to go out and buy something I really, really, really shouldn't but desperately want so I'll be sitting out the remainder of this sale or I'll have to resort to selling my organs on the black market.

598 down to 148 is such a steal!

oo I love that wallet you got Chrissy! I used to have the same style wallet in Plum and used it forever and it held up great!

^^yeah i'm liking it so far...
it's got plenty of slots and pockets and all that for cards and everything..

the wallet i got for my mother isn't as easy to use because it doesn't open up all the way (if that makes sense)..
has less slots for cards etc...

yeah, the only thing I found hard to use about that wallet was the coin zipper compartment on the outside...I found that with the flap over the zipper, it got a little annoying, but that was my only complaint for the wallet :p But at the prices on the sample sales I can't complain hehe

^^YES!

such a good point...
that slot is VERY TIGHT...

i've been using the zippered inner compartment for change...
much easier to use..

thinking maybe i'll put my glasses and contacts prescriptions in that other zippered pocket...
i always keep them in my wallet just in case (of what i don't know )
so, that somewhat hard to get to (but secure) space might be the best spot for them

This is likely shameless of me... but today is the last day of Hayden-Harnett's YouTube contest and I'm essentially tied for first place. If any of you guys are bored, I would greatly appreciate if you put your time to watching my movie. You can even watch it as many times as you like! The hits counter is slow to update but it registers every time the movie is opened! :p

It would be pretty sweet if the prize went to someone from TFS, wouldn't it? And if my endless adoration isn't enough... I can promise my mother's undying love, too! The link is in my signature if you're interested!

PS. If you search for flat, wedge, or other shoe-type variants on the HH site.. some of the new stock shows up! I think they're launching officially on the 15th? I'll be honest.. there's only one pair I'm really impressed by.. and many people are saying the prices seem steep.

HH website is having a sale - enter code PRESIDENT to get an extra 50% off all items (sales included) from now til the 21st I think
The wallets are really cheap - can get them for about $50 now

Thank you! The people at HH were incredibly generous and gave me a $500 GC and I was able to pick up a bag for my mother and some boots for myself half-off during the Inauguration sale! I don't think it was in their initial plan but I'm guessing they were just as saddened by the obvious use of tricks to get hits counters up... the winning video was jumping like 1500 hits per hour at one point. I had no way of competing against that. :p

Fortunately for all the other videos entered, HH are prolonging and modifying the contest with new rules. Every week from now until April 15th where they get at least 5 new entries, they will assess them on creativity and one video will get a $100 GC and then on April 15th they'll judge all of them... including the ones from the first phase of the contest, and the winner gets the two outfits initially offered.

glad to hear that you were able to get a $500 gift card! That's still pretty good!

and definitely a great value with their 50% off inauguration sale...

which bag and boots did you end up going for?

I was totally surprised that I got anything... I definitely didn't expect a runner-up prize!

My mom is getting a Havana in Black... she loves mine in Eggplant and wanted one in Lagoon last year but the Black is classic and she likes the contrast stitching. I was really torn between getting the Madeleine boots in Black and Eucalyptus but decided on Black because it's more versatile and I don't actually own any black boots. I had a handbag and wallet in mind for myself briefly but decided I would get more use out of the boots. So not the most exciting order, but still great pieces!

I'll post pictures when they arrive!
