The pics do not do this color justice, it is amazing! Super creamy, like a marriage between Sandstone and Naturel with a dash of caramel. It is a lovely neutral bag that is really neutral, not too brown, just right. Now the size was a bit shocking at first, but now I think it is really cool, my cities kinda seem small now! This Sahara beauty is hanging in my closet now with weights in it to stretch it a bit, it will be really great, IMHO, once the leather relaxes. Honestly, bbag friends, does it look way too big on me? Like it may eat me alive? Honest opinions please!
