I recently purchased a Tomato City from Saks sight unseen. She might look familar because I posted her all over the place the day I got her! But I still haven't carried her yet... I love her because she is the perfect red I wanted and her leather feels and smells terrific - Sooo very smooshy, suedie, and soft. All of my bbags have some sort of quirk to them, However...she has more than her fair share of Bal imperfections. A few light spots and one dark spot on the back of the bag I think I can live with. But have you ever seen tassels shreded on the edges/cut so badly?
