It's nothing much..I am adopting mono noe from a lovely friend. The reason I am posting it because I remember while back whe had a thread regarding the curl on noe string..well I did it with my noe . I received the bag without the string. I could buy the string from LV for only $33 but the string will be pale vachetta and stiff. It won't look good with the rest of the bag vachetta. So I bought the leather string from eBay, just to make sure it's the same patina tone.. The string goes perfectly with the patina in the bag and I only paid $4 for it..the best part is I can make it curl by twisting the leather.. Here she is with the curl..
