YAY! I bought the Kooba Brynne tonight in color Oak. I love her! Two questions though while I have tags on with receipt - I looked first at Saks and they did not have her in Oak, so I actually got her at Bloomingdale's. Stupid question, I know, but I am so paranoid so I must ask if Bloomie's definitely gets all bags from Kooba directly? They said they did. So no worries about authenticity? Secondly, I noticed on the oak color a couple of 'imperfections' that you'll find b/c the leather is so soft and high quality. I have always heard that to be true, you all agree that this is normal on real leather? Thank you for my silly questions, I will post pics soon!
