thanks sarina, jadecee, chanelspell, erica, misskt, shopaholiccat!

missisa>> oops sorry forgot to answer your question. it seems pretty durable, it's a lot stiffer than i would think. the SA told me that it is a cotton satin blend. YOU SHOULD GET IT!! i love it. it's big enough to use during the day but satin is a material great for night too. :smile: have i convinced you yet??
chanelspell>> unfortunately i don't think the blue is out anywhere yet. think the black satin and the gradient vinyl were the first 2 out from this line.. according to the SA, it will come in the much larger version though. i think the satin will keep but i'm just more careful with it because i don't want it to snag on anything.
misskt>> thank you! i love love paris. :smile: it's been amazing!

Hi Pluiee - What a gorgeous bag! :smile: I was waitlisted for the very same bag but gave it up as by that time I got a baby Cabas and wasn't so sure of the satin of the Melrose (tho hadn't seen the bag IRL) ... now looking at your photos, I'm so regretting my decision! You look fab. Love your style and love nutella too! :cutesy:
