ok, i KNOW that this is the only place i can go for this...today, i received my much anticipated mahala! as soon as the box arrived, my hands were shaking as i signed for the package and then rushed off to tear it open. i purchased this after looking at the mahalas over and OVER again...and then after talking to the SA at the JC boutique in atlanta georgia, decided to take the plunge! the color sounded fabulous, and i as i gaze at the beauty, i'm in awe of the color still! definitely TDF! HOWEVER, my anxious question for y'all, is if the bag is too big for me??? and if not, will it begin to soften? b/c right now, when i put it on, or try to carry it, the width of the bag seems so large that it's awkward for my arm to know where to go! somebody please help!!! i ADORE the color and the style of the bag, but i'm barely 5'2" and petite at that...so i'm just not sure of how the bag looks on me and i don't want to feel like it will dwarf me! i haven't yet figured out how to posts pics of me w/ the actual bag, but if i figure that one out, i'll post pics and see what you gals think. i SO don't want to return the bag, it's just so gorgeous, but i also don't want to feel like i spent almost $2k on a bag that i'll hardly use b/c it looks awkward on me! all the pics i've seen of the bag, it doesn't look so structured as mine...and maybe that's the patent leather issue...but will some use and "abuse" soften it any? or will that just make the bag look beat up?? sigh...questions...torment! what to do??? please offer up some advice, oh wise ones...please!
