I just saw it at the Chicago boutique... and they had a bag in the window displayed inside out! You can totally wear it that way! Although the SA said it's not technically recommended to do so. - It is cute, cute, cute. Although I didn't get one... because a) I'm *technically* on a ban, and b) I couldn't figure out where I would actually carry it, because I'm nervous about the open top bags. But it's really on my list now that I know you can wear it lining side out. But I did get the mini pochette with the trunks & bags logo... that has that same cute lining. c'mon... it's a small LE piece. You can bend a ban for that right.
