I know this is true for all pieces, you have to see them in real life to judge. But dentelle surprised me even more than most pieces. I was at LV to pick up my perle heart purse (late... But vernis smells soooo good! It's amazing!) I think it was yesterday, and I also got a look at dentelle! It was SO different from the pictures! It's really sparkly and shiny and it stands out subtly. Especially the gold one compliments the canvas. IT's really wonderful, if you like florals and haven't been turned on by this yet, check out the nearest store. And get on the wait list, fast! I'm currently waitlisted for the Ludlow, but I probably won't be getting it, as I have no use for it at all and I need a break. But the design is awesome, nothing like the pictures. I'd recommend you to rush over to the store now and have a look! It's truly unique, pretty and fine craftmanship.
