ok, so at first, i must admit, the fact that the liquid patent was not uniform kind of bothered me, but the longer i looked at the bag, the more i realized how beautiful and unique it is. the color is just muted enough, to be practical and go with everything, but is colorful enough to draw your eye to it, especially since the patent cant help but shine. anyways, i'm pretty happy that this is my first jc bag. i've long been a fan of their boots (10 pairs and counting). i hope others tpfers who got the same bag will also post pics. as for me, the price made it even more lovable.
