Okay ya'll... this is the most extreme thing I have ever done to try and find a paddy that is going to be perfect for me. You are all going to laugh, but I have just recently bought two paddy's, from the same year, same color, but I think one is s/s and one is f/w! Does that just not beat all? I had a paddy from 2005 (khaki) and the leather was to die for - really. Then I had a 2006 whiskey and muscade, but neither color had me craving to use the bag daily and I want to love on this bag when I finally settle on the one that is right for me. I have watched so many photos trying to "guesstimate" what might be the perfect color for me and being such a "brown loving" girl, I thought I should try the tan. Okay - here is the go-ahead-and-commit-me-part. So - I am able to track down a wonderful paddy - looks like exactly what I want, then the exact same day I make a decision on this one - up comes this pristine one on eBay! And, also from 2005! I am going crazy thinking that I will always wonder if I let this one go and that if I could just compare them side by side I could maybe make a decision that is right for me instead of trying to peer into photographs! To the point: Two paddy's coming, one arrived today. This is photos from the one today! What do you think of her?
