Yeah, I know it sounds vile, but when I saw this bag in person, I literally droooled over it. It is so utterly beautiful that there is no other colour way I would have the Betty in apart from the black patent (medium). I am currently waitlisted for it and it should be arriving at the end of June. What are your thoughts on black patent for a betty? Has anyone else seen one, and if so, what do you think? I'm also interested in anyones opinions as to wether or not the black patent will date sooner than the tan or cream Betty? Thanks in advance guys for any input you have!
