Hello ya all, glad to be back. I went a bit nuts and ordered a whiskey flap. Yes, one that I gave back last year and missed in the slim flap. But it was different girls. When I saw my lovely Coach SA wearing one the otherday, I thought she had a brown Ali on her shoulder and it was beautiful . I stared and stared at it. But, it was indeed a large Whiskey ali and she had the cutest charms on it. It was so brown that I had to ask if was indeed brown. I headed straight for the store since she was shopping on her break in Nordies and all of a sudden I had bought one, huh? And a wristlet to match. See what happens when this forum is down????? Well ladies, it arrived today and I swear my last year's whiskey slim flap bag was a lighter more varigated color, not so smooth, more rugged and much less one color dark orangey whiskey. I really do not know if I like it. This was not the whiskey I missed. I noticed that this years whiskey flap was more smooth and the leather was different. What to do, Jax has more slims, but I may get the same exact color and defintiely the SA's will not like the large return to their little store. Does anyone have the same experience with their whiskey's of this year an last year in color variation? Somehow it does not look right to me. The stitching inside, the raw leather lifts up a bit on the flap but that I am not worried about so much. I would appreciate all of you Ali girls to let me know what you think. Thanks so much in advance. Glad to be back. I was freaking out here...Thank you for bringing back the forum Vlad and Megs!!!!
