So about 4 months ago, I sold my chloe marcie because it was a little too big on me and I wanted a new neutral bag that was of a good size with shoulder strap. I decided to look into miu miu and liked the mini bow, but it was too small, and the regular was too big. Just as I was about to settle for my miu miu I walked into prada and saw the BN1801 in caramel and it was the PERFECT bag.

At that point I was in Singapore and the BN1801 was almost $800 more than the US. Here's my other thread asking for opinions - http://forum.purseblog.com/prada/help-first-prada-saffiano-leather-tote-693848.html In the end, I decided to order from Joanna instead. I had to make a special order because the BN1801 in caramel was out. I even put in argilla as my second option. And I just waited for news. Weeks came and passed and there was no news about my special order. After 3 months I finally gave up and started looking on ebay, hoping to find argilla because I've seen a couple in larger sizes. I was even going to settle for a larger sized saffiano with shoulder strap in sabbia.

Then one day I saw the BN1801 in caramel on ebay and COULDN'T believe it! I made sure to win the action and when I did I was so happy, but I had to authenticate it. After getting it authenticated, I paid for it but the seller's paypal account was not verified and then there were all these problems with shipping. For a while I thought it might just be a scam. But then 3 days ago my BN1801 in caramel came in the mail!!! :biggrin: and it is simply BEAUTIFUL. I can't believe I went through all this trouble just to get the bag, but I'm glad I persevered because it's so worth it!

I will post the pictures soon!

Pictures! Pardon the terrible quality, will take more & better pictures when there's more sunlight. Will take some mod pictures too so its easier to tell how big/small it is.

I've brought it out twice already and I loveeeee it so so much. The colour is amazing and the size is perfect for me. I've taken a picture of the inside of the bag as well just to show the amount of space. But it probably looks smaller than it actually is. I haven't been this excited about a bag in a long long time!

Gorgeous! Something that pretty deserves to be brought out more often. As happy as you are about the purse, it will also brighten your day!
