I took back Mahina yesterday. My usual SA did the return and she said the weird leather would have bothered her too. I'm not going to push my luck by trying to get the very last black XL transferred in, as I have a feeling it would have abnormalities too. I'm hoping that someday soon, more black XLs will be sent to the boutiques. I know Mahina is LE but the SA at 866 said something about there maybe being more available in the near future. But for now, I'm in mourning. Such a beautiful, perfect bag. Anyone else ever let their dream bag go?
