I hadn't seen this bag IRL, but decided to take the plunge last week and order the Alpha Shopper in Latte Leather/Suede (from Bluefly at $396). There was just something about the look of it that I found strangely attractive and I really wanted a casual, slouchy bag in this colour. It arrived today and I am amazed - it is way better than I thought it would be. I have to say that I have never been a lover of the AW pebbly leather - I bought a black rocco and returned it straight away, but this is really soft and squishy. It is such a lightweight bag and the leather is truly gorgeous. So different to how I thought it would be. If anything, however, the soft leather/suede combo will probably be the bag's downfall in the long term - I tend not to baby my bags and I will have to take a bit more care with this one, but at the moment I don't care. It's a keeper for sure - the tags are off and my stuff is inside already!! I don't have time for modelling pics at the moment, but this photo I found probably represents how it looks IRL the best. I'm now trying to convince myself that I don't need a black one as well!!
