I posted a couple days ago because I couldn't wait to share with everyone even tho I didn't have pics yet. We finally got home from our loooong driving trip (2 weeks is long to me) and I took photos right away. Gonna have to sell another of my black bags, 'cause I want to use this one (carefully) and not let it sit in the closet. The hardware is silver color. The pic of it on my arm makes it look spotted--don't know what happened; I'm a terrible photographer. Anyway I love it!!
