I was with my GF today at a Doctor's appt. She had Breast Cancer last year the exact same time with Mom so the 3 of us went through it together. Their Biopsies and surgery's were just a week apart so everyone went to everyone elses appts. Anyway...Back on Track... when she had started Chemo I wanted to get her a nice gift. She had no nice bags (only Walmart brands) but she loved my Purses. So I got her a Jessie in Bourbon. She has used that bag exclusively for a year and I saw it today. I was so amazed. It is soooo soft and slouchy. All the leather is so soft and pliable, everywhere on the bag. I didn't know this happens! LOL My Jessie I bought at the same time still have stand up stiff straps! She was teasing me and said I really need to let her borrow some of my bags to get them workin in. If I don't stop buying bags I'll never get my bags "Lived In".
