This is truly beautiful - I was trying to get caught up and read this thread on my iPhone last night while being ferried to a concert in the car and it was driving me NUTS trying to see the photo - very very nice bag! Congrats and wear it in good health!
I've lusted after the Roma for years. (Just ask my husband, who has had to witness countless 'Roma playdates' whenever we passed a BV boutique.)
I've also been craving the past year to fill the 'red-red' gap in my bag wardrobe. Fire, Fire Opal, Fever, Corniola etc were too orangey for me.
So when husband spotted IT on the BV website, he said 'Go for IT!' (And as a result of a separate wager we had made, he offered to split the cost with me. ). The best part is, since I had it shipped out of Europe, I saved 35% off of the local BV boutique price - shipping and tax included!
