So I ordered a Glazed Black MAB from Bluefly. I had just gotten a MAB off of ebay that was a little too blingy for me but loved the style...anyway it came and it is really beautiful, super shiny w/blue zipper track. The problem is it is soooooooooo stiff. The one I got off of ebay just slouches when it is not stuffed, but this looks almost like a black doctor's bag or something! I also got in a BBW SO with silver hardware (which I usually prefer to gold). But, if this one would soften up a bit I could see keeping it because it is definitely a dressier bag, whereas the BBW has a fuschia zipper track with pebbled leather. So, will this bag ever soften up? If it won't, I probably will send it back to Bluefly since I have really overspent my budget lately, I just don't want to end up wishing I had kept it since black bags are my most used and it only cost me $335. The other thing is that the zipper pull seems really stiff too, it is pretty hard to pull, and I wonder if that is normal for new bags?
