My Betty arrived today, as I asked for overnight shipping. I got a GREAT deal, and the shipping wasn't bad. I played with her by putting my stuff in her and her pockets. She's lightweight enough! The leather is so soft, I want to liken it to a velvety dessert, for some reason. (It's texture is soft and velvety, and it's thin, it's not the same soft as my Paddy.) I think it's a great school bag, and I can take out the books to bring out on weekdays. It'll never be a Paddington, but it's nice and stylish. One question, what's the official colour name? She doesn't have her Chloe' tag. Oh and I've named her Sugar Plum, because she was dancing in my head last night and her colour is Plum. It's neat, she kind of looks like a backpack, but on one shoulder.
