Okay, first off, sorry guys, no pics, but I'll try my best to describe it by comparing to the pics on musthavebag (excellent service from them btw). First off the cloud in the leather refers to the weight I think, it's light as a cloud. The texture is smooth, a little shiny (like distressed patent)and distressed (mine is quite a bit more distressed than any of the bags on the website). I can imagine being able to wipe any dirt off with a moist wipecloth, which is a good thing for a white bag. The new pics on the website is a better representation of the leather than the pic on the model on the website. From the pic on the model, I expected more dull, smooshy leather. Next thing, the color. It can definitely not be described as bright white. I think I would describe it as a very light greige. I thought it was the lights in my office, but I took it outside and it's still not bright white. The functionality is great, it's a big bag (what I wanted) and the fit on the shoulder is tight (what I expected) and has lots of pockets. All in all the bag is different from what I expected, but I'm keeping it. I kinda signed up for cutesy and girly and got something a little more funky (in a good way, it has a "feel" similar to a Bal work, I think). I think I can do with a bit more funkiness in my life. Oh and I already got my first compliment from a stranger while I was outside checking ot the color in daylight.
