I had a lot of hope for this bag after my debacle with my last JY bag. I had always wanted the Chocolate Gatsby but was deterred by the pink contrast stitching. So when I saw the Chocolate Gatsby at Delcina sans pink stitching, and at a phenomenal sale price, I knew I had to bite the bullet, and so I did! I received the bag today, and all the high hopes I had for this bag were met! The leather is like BUTTTTTTER! Soft, like velvet almost, and in a beautiful shade of deep dark espresso brown. The gold hardware sets off the color beautifully, and the pockets on the bag make organization a breeze. I it! My question to you guys is this: Do you think this bag is dressy enough for work and stuff, or do you feel this is a casual jeans-type of bag? I dont like the gold charm that came on the bag and I took it off.
