Okay guys, I won this Ginger on eBay on July 10 and it finally arrived today. I've gotta say it's GORGEOUS. The exact same leather as my Maria. This bag is going to work on the days I need a bit more room to play with. I used the Maria a couple of times for work, but realized it was just a little too small for my work needs, but the Maria will work for weekends, when I just need wallet, sunnies, keys and bare makeup essentials, so it won't be redundant. What I find strange is that the Ginger looks and feels like the perfect size, but as soon as I see myself wearing it in the mirror, it looks enormous, but it doesn't feel enormous. does that make sense? It's comfortable and practical. This is definitely a great bag and I'm extremely happy with it. It works on the shoulder really well. I don't find it heavy at all, which makes me wonder if I'm just used to heavy bags. Hubby gave me $375 yesterday, which was money due to him at work. I'm going to tell him I spent it on Ginger.
