I first saw the Petal to the Metal Natasha in late 2009 in black, and always thought it was such a handy and cute little bag for a great price (compared to my Chanel addiction)! Every time I walked by the MBMJ, I would always look for the Natasha. Next month DF and I are getting married and going away for our honeymoon, and I was in the market for a hands-free bag. I wanted something that was small enough that it won't be a hassle to carry, but large enough so that it could hold our sunglasses and essentials. I was at Holts over the weekend and immediately the Natsha in the new colours caught my eye. There was Shell, which is an off-white, and Nude, which is what I got. I wouldn't exactly describe it as nude...I would call it a dusty rosey beige but it's so very pretty. I love pink and it's pink without being too girly (I considered getting the Natasha in the Fuchsia when it was available but it's too bright for me) and neutral enough that it goes with lots of things. I chose this over the Shell because I think this could be carried all year round and won't get dirty as easily as the off-white! This is my first MBMJ, and my last bag purchase was an MJ Stam...I'm definitely noticing and loving his bags more and more nowadays! Here she is...it looks a tad darker in real life... I bought these cute and cheap shoes for walking around, and think the Natasha goes great with them!
