hi ladies! just wanna thank you all for helping me pick my first kooba...it's the Charlie in Black! i got her on sale on Shopbop.com for only $430 and it has been one of the best bag purchases i have ever made... i absolutley love the leather on this bag, it's so soft and smooshy yet i can feels it's durabilty. and the black has a great sheen to it also. what's great about this style is the versatility...I love how I can carry it 4 diff ways!! it is the PERFECT bag for me for shopping, for dressing up of dressing down, when I wanna shop hands free etc... i hope to get more koobas in the future!!! i'm leaning towards a Dylan or something in the same family in eggplant! enjoy the pics!!
