Oh My my my!!!! This bag is absolutely gorgeous! It is 50 times better than I expected. I opened that box and was WOWED! Even my husband said from all the pics I've shown him, none have done this bag justice. I guess lighting or whatever but no pics I have seen on any site has really shown this bag for what it is. Think of Rose Petals (like someone said before). The deep but muted red. A dull but rich color (if that makes sense). The leather is soooo soft, almost Petal like. Definately more Rose than red. But the color is such that it almost makes this bag a neutral color. I can see carrying it with all different colors and styles. I hope my pics show more than I can say. Now I really want a Blond Bonnie. I bet that bag is better than it shows.
