Gucci wants to make sure I'm really ready

I have become completely enamored with this Gucci shoulder bag. It's a very practical size and features a convenient flap closure.

Practicality aside, what really caught my eye is the color. The teal is so vibrant and rich, and would provide a great "pop" on those drab black & white days I'm prone to having. The horsebit hardware is enough to be interesting, but doesn't overpower the bag. Okay, I'm sold!

Then I read this:
"Expected To Ship: 05/09/2005"

Excuse me? It's not even available until May? Are handbags like movies now, where we need months of notice before the product actually comes out? I am a crazy handbag freak, but this is ridiculous even to me.

    You think that's bad, I pre-ordered a blouse from Anthropologie--the yellow heart-printed one featured prominently in the new catalog--which is expected to ship June 10! A $60 or so blouse! Of course, the June 10 ship date made me want it even more.

    That bag is gorgeous, by the way, and very practical.

    I'm mesmerized by that bag and I'm not even a big Gucci fan. It's so pretty! Such a great color.
