yeah I know, I'm excited but scared in a way baglady! you know I haven't had much luck w/bags... seriously if this one is a no-go, then I'll definitely be laying off bags for awhile! LOL I bet the color will be gorgeous, but like you said, if the leather is thin or not worth it, then back to the store it will go! i'll be nice and post pics though... i could be mean and just return it without taking it home... ush: don't worry i won't do that to all of you! i'll definitely at least bring it home (even if I don't like it)OOo, I can't wait, Coachgirl! You will probably end up making the decision for me as well!! My only worry for you is that I don't know that this bag is going to be any more structured than the last one you bought. I was told by an outlet SA this past weekend that the leather is similar to the new Legacy line, so it's thinner and makes the bag less structured. This is also a concern I have for me too, although all bags do puddle to some extent. It just depends on the design and how caves in. Post as soon as you can, and I hope this turns out to be the dream bag for you!!!
