a new job has prompted me to make my latest purchase i have been waiting for this bag since last march! i kinda lost interest when it took so long for production, but when finally i saw the bag in stores and realized it was the perfect size for me, i had to have! i think the ebony damier is just SO sharp, and i'm very glad i was able to get it for the $1420 price tag rather than the increased price of $1480 tomorrow morning. so here we go, i apologize in advance for the bad quality of my modeling pics...my camera doesn't fair well with no-flash photos. either that or i can't hold my hand steady enough to take the picture. lol.
