After posting in the "Authenticate this" forum and having several members say "looks great but post pics when she comes" I am finally able to post my pics since my first stam EVER just came in the mail today!! So here she is! Please let me know what you think about her! I love this bag so much but am still very torn ever since I fell in love with a deep chocolate elastic stam at Neiman Marcus a couple weeks ago. The elastic Stam was full price retailing for $1350 and I found this one for a little less so I went for it. Still not sure which one I would pic if they were equal price.. I think I have to go back to NM and take a second look now that I have my Patchwork Stam.. What do you girls think? Don't get me wrong- I am so in love with this bag it's just that I love both styles but I can't afford two right now.. well I can afford two but my BF won't let me.. lol. Please give me your thoughts!
