Crashed!

So funny that the thousands of crazy girls trying to buy Tory B. Totes, shoes and tunics crashed the sale at Rue. LITERALLY. They had to pause the sale due to technical difficulties! I don’t know why I think it is so funny (even though I was getting very excited about the blue tote and the pink and green scroll tunic). Something about the visual of screaming girls on the Internet clicking away furiously like some sort of virtual Filene's Basement mad dash.
I hope they get it back up and running and that everybody gets what they want. I think I am over it. Although that tunic might be perfect for post baby mid-section coverage! Alas- if I ever want to stay at home- we need to save… so I will be going without. Boo.

I thought the same thing! I couldn't even get on to see what was being offered before it crashed! Every time I logged in I got an error message and then the final message that everything was down.

Wonder what I'll find tomorrow? I'll have to see what the prices are before I actually commit to buying!

Haha that is funny. I didn't even know it crashed. When I did look at it I saw that they didn't have my reva's and said the heck with it. I'm with you...saving penny's.

I didn't even purchase anything, because I entered the sale WAY too late! And, I don't need to spend the money =(

It was terrible! I did not get any of the six items that were in my shoppping bag because of their techincal difficulties!

Me too! There was one cute tote, but I gave up. When I finally got in, it was still there, but I thought, forget it. I have a new Cole-Haan bag I bought from them two weeks ago and really don't need another tote. Your post is very funny! If you watch Niemans, Saks and Nordstroms, sometimes they have good deals on Tory Burch. The espadrilles are on sale now, and they are very cute. Where I live, however, people don't know a Tory from anything else. Tough to live in the sticks!

I was so bummed. There was a cute Tory tote, but by the time I got in, it was gone. Oh well!

Yea, let's hope they bring back that Williams-Sonoma sale they posted before that got cancelled!!!!!!

I had a purse in my cart too and lost it - oh well, it wasn't meant to be!!
