I couldn't resist - I used a 15% off coupon and bought through Lucky Rewards, so my total will be aprox. $470 after those two discounts. I usually wear alot of black, summer included, so I thought this purse would brighten things up. I was leaning towards a black city, but black purses are more common and I already have a neat casual one from Argentina (black hobo with cow horn) and two Guccis (one clutch and one dressy one with a gold lion head), so I went for it. I also thought its a great way to test drive a bag without a major investment. What do you girls think? Any black lovers use a colorful B-bag to spice things up?
