How are you able to tell its 2005?

It looks like Sky Blue to me for these reasons (for someone more knowledgeable, if I am incorrect, please let me know!)
  • The unfaded areas look like sky blue
  • The faded areas look like how sky blue fades, with an undertone of green
  • Zipper tape color
  • Edge paint color
  • The leather quality

My Sky Blue - look at the upper left corner and lower right corner - has the same undertone of green to my eyes.

Here's a photo of Ice Blue which has more of a greyish-yellow? undertone:

Really wish it wasn’t so faded and stained :sad:

Got excited, til I read the description :frown:

05 Teal First - no shoulder strap, burn (not shown) inside front pocket

Seller must not have the bag. Says they can’t take pics of the burn. Odd to mention it but not show it. I made an offer but it was declined. I’d buy a shoulder strap but w/o knowing how bad that burn is, not sure its worth the risk

Can we please only refer to Dolma as "Money Green" from here on out? 🤣💸

 
I need advice —

So I was the one who bought the 03 True Red First from TRR
I was really excited — but of course, TRR being the TRR
There’s no shoulder strap :frown:

I reached out on social media. She says they’re checking the warehouse to see if they just forgot to put it back inside, but I’m not holding out hope. She says if its not, they’ll accommodate a free return

WWYD?

Honestly, I can’t really use it without having a shoulder strap
I know I could probably buy a replacement one somewhere, but it wouldn’t be the same
Would you return such a rarity or suck it up and keep it?
