Har har har...I'm so witty :P I'm pretty sure you guys already know what I'm going to be gushing about. I mean, I've only talked and dreamed and fantasized about it for two months...throwing it into practically every post and scheduling all other purchases around it!
FINALLY got my hands on the Fall 09 Act I Dark Blue Caviar with GHW Maxi!!!!!!!!!!!! Yay me :) Most places should have all the colors in by now but of course, not everyone ordered all the same colors. To my knowledge, the Maxi for Act I includes only brown, black, blue (slightly brighter than the previous navy), fuchsia (similar to S/S 09 fuchsia...very tempting), gray (very similar to my dark silver reissue), and baby pink (GORGEOUS anthracite hardware).
The black arrived almost a month before all other colors. When the black first arrived, my SA double checked with me to make sure that I didn't want the black and I told her I would probably end up going for the blue. Over the next few weeks, I stalked my SA and the Chanel forum to make sure I would be on top of the arrival of the other colors. Last Monday, someone on TPF got the dark blue and I became 100% sure that I wanted the blue. I immediately called my SA but sadly SCP was not expecting this color. No fear! My wonderful SA located one for me in SF and yea, I GOT WHAT I WANTED :P When I went to go pick up my new baby, all of the other SAs came over to oogle at it and I'm pretty sure some of them called their clients right away to alert them about the color. Uber excited and can't wait to wear her out.
For comparison, my Jumbo and my Maxi:

Note: The Maxi seems to have awakened my purse addiction (minus one current CL lust item, my shoe addiction is somewhat in check...). The same day I picked my Maxi, I ordered another bag (not Chanel). I talked to the SA today and she said to expect a call from her Monday or Tuesday. I think my choice will surprise a lot of you...
