Because it's too frickin' big! I'm so disappointed, I could tell it was going to be big but not that big. I hope Active Endeavors refunds my money. I used a coupon code so I'm a bit worried that they'll just give me a store credit. And believe it or not, there's nothing else on their site that I want. Regarding the leather, I thought it was wonderful. But this is my first botkier so maybe it's not as luxe as what seasoned botkiers fans expect. The quality is great as well. I'm thinking about the satchel in cherry but really, how many red handbags does a girl need? Counting them up now: coach hobo, swingpack and satchel, LV epi speedy, tess loriani suede flower hobo, nuove dive satchel, something by treesje, vanessa hobo by charlie lapson, and anything else I can't recall. Then there's the pink bags......................... Of course, I can proclaim myself A COLLECTOR and that entitles me to as many red bags as I deem fit!
