Ok I finally got to see the crackled metallic Brooke today IRL. She does seem a tad delicate. I\'m in love with the color. The hardware is a bit darker then I thought and it is a tad slouchy for sure even with my stuff in it. the size is really great, nice and medium. As far as weight it was a tad more than other bags the same size. So if I get the money from my other business adventure. I will get her!!! Wish me luck!!!
