Okay here's the story behind this purse. I pre-ordered this from vialux*** (not sure if I can say) in early February and expected to receive it at the end of February. It was such a great deal at 35% off that I couldn't possibly pass it up. As the quoted date came and went, I followed up and found out that RM was going to take a few more weeks to send the supply to the retailer. I said OK I'd wait some more but meanwhile, my interest was waning because of all of the SO issues. Days later, I tried cancelling my order but the lady proprietor talked me into keeping it (she's been quite gracious, by the way), what with the great price and all. I finally decided to keep it.

This morning, I just happened to browse the RM site and was excited to see that it had a gorgeous new Black MAM - it had the blue zipper but instead of gold hw, it had silver! Oooh was I feeling such regret over my order because the one I bought came with gold hw which is still beautiful but I would've preferred silver hw, now that I've seen it. I wished half-seriously that the delay was because they were sending me the silver one instead.

When my package arrived this afternoon, I wasn't too anxious to open it. But I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw a glint of silver through the packaging. You should have seen me tear through the wrappings! :P I couldn't unwrap it quickly enough. It's gorgeous!!!!! It is fate! I must've been blessed by the bag gods!

She will be making her introduction very shortly...

Thanks you very much ladies! :biggrin: I'm sooo pleased with this purse!

cooper1, it is absolutely perfection - the color scheme is a definite hg for me!

klj, the lining is the cherry on top of this scrumptious sundae!

desi, I agree about the owner. I've heard things to the contrary so I just wanted to mention that she's been great through the whole process - very responsive and attentive.
