Just got my new elastic stam in blue today. So excited I have a question for you stam gals (now I am one of you too!): the leather seems really "stiff", and the bag is not as slouchy as I thought it would be. There is a hard board-like thing at the bottom of the bag, so it has this squared look when I carry it. Do you see what I mean? Is that normal? I stuffed the bag with some of my clothes to try to soften the leather a little, don't know if that will help though... any suggestions? I purchased the bag through Shopbop, so there shouldn't be any authenticity problems right? Thanks a lot gals!
