Hi. How tall are you? I just got the biggest one, but I haven't picked up yet. Can you post a modeling pic of you and the large bag?

Would you say the leather is as durable as caviar? And is this a special order bag?

5 ft and I returned it...just too big and awkward cause it's long. I am looking at next size down...haven't gotten the chance to go in store yet...supposedly, they have beige, burned orange and Bordeaux as well.

Yes leather is glazed so it's even more worry free and durable in my opinion vs caviar. Not a special order...I believe they're in stores now.

My SA also mentioned the wire in the flap, which apparently is pliable so you can shape the flap to give it more of a crumpled look.
I have the large, light grey on the way to me, so I shall be able to see whetther this is a good thing or not!

I love the ivory
Ok- does the ivory bag not have the leather top strap like the other shiva bags?
ETA: never mind, I see that it does. Love the bag, except for that strap. :-/
