There is nothing like seeing bags in real life! I got a call yesterday afternoon from Nordies. They got in a bunch of Cruise 07 Choos, and they were holding the one I had been on a list for. So, I took a quick trip downtown and... I may be in big trouble. They were holding the Neon Blue liquid patent Mahala. The color is fabulous in real life. The suede is so vibrant, and the patent is dark with some variations in the color. I had cooled to the color over the last few weeks. But, OMG, in real life, WOW! Pictures did not do it justice. Robyn, you will love this color. And jmcadon, they also have the Maddy. I didn't get the bag, but it is still on hold for me until Friday. Decisions, decisions. Then I spied the snake Ramona ($3495). Fans, of reptile (polaremil, I'm talking about you!), that one will take your breath away. For any of you that are on the fence about these 2 bags, because pictures are all you've seen....whew, I gotta sit down.
