Ladies I can't tell you how happy I am. My Chocolat paddy has arrived and I it. The color is really amazing it's truely like mousse au chocolat and not uniform at all...even my preeteen girls love it , it's their new favorite second comes the Bal day! The leather is soft and smells wonderfully. It does have a "scar" but I really don't mind it at all I think it adds to the charm and makes it unique. Now it did have some hardware chipping , good that I saw the thread dealing with this subject here just before receiving it. It helped me to be not too dissapointed, the seller was great about the issue too. I will have to live with it.:s I must say I just love this bag, I think the color and leather are just amazing. I will post pics sometime later today!
