This is a lovely bag. IMHO, I like it over the Peyton one because the top flap just crowns the look. I hope you enjoy it. That's terrible you slipped on the ice but I think with a little Woolite or gentle soap and then you hang it dry will be fine.
The red patent Peyton is my second fav. Peyton I own. My only annoyance is that I paid PCE, and now they are out in mass at the outlets. At least I scored another couple of them, though (have to think positive here! ). Anyway, it's just GORGEOUS, hon!! Congrats!!! ENJOY!!!
