I don't think I like the handles at all. I am trying to feel her, but I can't. I really wanted to love my first. At Bloomies when I tried on the dream bags and matinees they seemed different. I think I am going to return it. I really wished I loved it.Oh yea- The leather handles at the bottom are supposed to look that way. I'm not sure if thats what you meant when you said they are dirty. They have that unfinished look to them. All my RM's are like that. I personally don't like the handles with the unfinished look, but thats JMO
I am not sure. I don't have the spark I have had with other bags. Maybe it's just that this is not the bag for meOh, Nicole. I know you were waiting on that one... Do you think you like the bag in general, or are you missing the spark?
