I've been reading all the negative posts about the Bleeker collection and holding my breath until mine arrived... it came on Friday and I LOVE this bag! LOVE LOVE LOVE it! There is NO stiffness anywhere -- it's very soft and has a great droopiness to it. Shoulder strap is perfect -- PERFECT length and width and not heavy at all. It IS a large bag! But I don't think it is much larger than the large Carly -- just a bit different shaped. I used my 5'6" and 105 lb daughter to model it on. Pics are inside at night and honestly doesn't show the richness of the color. Will try to get one in natural light later on. From what I understand, this is a limited color in this style. Only certain stores received them -- mine had to order it from JAX.
