Got my Gerard today

  1. So, I finally got my first (won't be my last) Gerard Darel today. I ordered it in brown from bagshop. Excellent service from them btw, ordered over the weekend, received today, free shipping. The bag is perfect. It's a deep chocolate brown, squishy soft, slightly pebbly leather, light as a feather. It's a very plain classy bag, with just a touch of whimsy. Best of all, the size is perfect. I was worried it would be too big. Even though I like big bags, I wanted this a a medium sized bag. So, I'm very happy with this bag. :tup:
     
  2. Post Pictures!!!! It sounds wonderful!!!! Congratulations!!

  9. Hello. It IS here! :yahoo:

    The leather is absolutely TDF - super smooth and soft leather, in rich dark chocolate. This is my first GD bag, and I love :heart: it. It's so light, and the shoulder drop is just right.

    Here are two pictures. The true color is on the picture with the bag on the desk (no flash). Nice?

  10. YUMMMYYYYY!!! I love how it looks on your shoulder! I'm going to Paris in july, and I plan on making a GD boutique one of my first stops!
     

  11. OMG, if you are in Paris, you will HAVE to make a GD stop. I am sure the price is a lot better there, and the choices! You'll be in heaven! I envy you!!
     
  12. Ibis - Your Gerard Darel looks beautiful on you! Congratulations!!!
