Hello! I usually lurk here and ogle everyone else's fabulous BV's, but I recently gifted myself the most wonderful handbag I've ever had and I just had to share. I'd like to introduce you all to my newest addition, an ebano cervo "baseball" hobo. I superlove her. I tried one on in the Chicago BV store last summer, and I've tried them in Nieman and decided it was time to end the torture and just get one! So I ordered online from Neiman and when I opened the box I was amazed by what was inside. This is THE softest, smooshiest, chewiest, most wonderful bag ever. I took a peek at the tag and it says that it's a 2006. I suppose I was surprised by the soft feel because I've been trying on washed cervo and this is the original cervo baseball hobo? I didn't consider the possibility that I wouldn't be getting a 2011ish, but if the 2006 is what's getting me this overly lovely leather, I'm not complaining. And here she is... my absolute most favorite bag of all time. The 3rd picture was taken indoors for color comparison. Thanks for letting me share!
