I guess it was totally spur at the moment though I've been thinking about getting this bag. After I got off work, I decided to go to MJ store "just to look" the Trish in leather lining. My SA is usually Peter. He's been helping me with my recent purchases . Today Luke was helping me and he's a cutie, btw . They have the Chili on display so I asked if they still had the dark brown and it was the last one in their store! I asked him if I could see it. He brought it out fresh still in the box . I could smell the leather when he took the stuffing out of the bag, and it smelled good, my friend. Long story to short, I finally talked myself into buying it! I can't believe I spent that much money on a bag . Oh well, I've been thinking about this bag for more than a month and it's just funny cause I wanted to get the Slouchy Tote first, but ended up with the Trish. The leather is so scrumptious and the smell is just heavenly. It is pretty heavy though after I put my zip clutch and my Treo. I think the leather lining makes the bag isn't as slouchy as the canvas lining. It's more strutured. Do you think the leather lining will make the bag heavier? Poor me, I can buy a Trish but still no digital camera . I took these pics with my cell.
