I just received this from Nordstrom and love it. The leather is beautiful and the color of the bag is perfect -- a dark slate grey that's almost navy and black combined (if that makes any sense at all). I like the shape so much and am happy that I can wear it over my shoulder (it's a tight fit but still comfortable). It has a fleur-de-lis lining that goes well with the grey shade. I will definitely buy more of the RM MA bags in other colors. The sale price is fantastic for a handmade bag -- on sale for $395. Thank you, thank you to all those who have written about this bag. I'm so grateful.
