I got my Venetia!

  1. It's here! I think it's in great shape for being pre-loved. It still smells like leather. I am surprised that the leather is not stiffer (is that a word?). KWIM? That bag is very slouchy. Is this just how they get? Is there any way to make it hold it's shape better. For the picture I stuffed a towel inside. I've included a picture of the MII tag because I had asked Thithi about that. I'll have my daughter take a picture of me holding the bag (since I ask everyone else for modeling pics), but she's at her first Home Coming dance right now.:smile:

  2. Congrats! It's very pretty! The leather does get softer with use, wich can make it kind of slouchy, but honestly I think MJ leather gets even prettier with use.
     
  3. Oh congrats! :yahoo: I know you've wanted a Venetia for a while now. You picked a great bag!!
     
  4. Beautiful!! The older bags have softer leather than the newer seasons. That's the best part of getting a vintage!! Hopefully when you wear or carry her, it won't look slouchy.
     
  5. Beautiful! Congrats!
     
  6. Congrats, fab bag & love the pink stitching!
     
  7. awesome venetia, yay !:yahoo:
     
  8. It's gorgeous! My venetia was pre-loved too, and it's so soft and supple. It's slouchy when I set it down and it's not very full, but not at all when it's carried.
     
  9. Great deal. Congrats!

  15. Congrats on your new Venetia! I love the sloucher look on it, but when your things are in there, it will look fine if you are worried about it.

    Enjoy!
