I tried on a carmino veneta in August and passed on it because I didn't like the way it looked on me. I didn't know the veneta had to be broken in. I'm jonesin' for venetas in white and ebano; I'm also trying to justify a veneta in oceano (that would make 4 blue bags). Could you all post pics of your broken in venetas. Help me get over my veneta-phobia.
