As usual I'm a day late and a dollar short, but my Nude Ring did arrive yesterday and I am SO glad I listened to Samantha and took the plunge for the third time! She is beautiful, love at first sight! She's about a shade or so darker than I expected which pleases me greatly as I was concerned the bag was going to be too light and a bother to take care of. I know I've said this before, but even with having 3 bags in the same style they do indeed look completely different from each other. The black Ring and the Nude Ring are like comparing apples and oranges....totally different! I do have to say though, IMO humble as it is, the Nude bag does seem to accentuate the length of the bag much more than the dark black or even the burgundy. I don't mind though because I absolutely love the style....but for anyone who may be concerned the Ring will look long when you're carrying it, go for the black! Oh, and one last thing. I'm sure most of you girls have ordered from NAP before but this was my first order. I am VERY impressed with their packing, the free black gift box tied with ribbon the bag came in, the free 2 day shipping.... up!! So what about you Samantha, did your bag arrive yesterday as well? Are you pleased with the color? Jburgh? It may be too early for you to have gotten yours yet, but do let me know what you think of the color once you do get it! I hope you're both as happy with your new bags as I am with mine!
