Ladies and gents let me tell you that these bags are gorgeous. I was so much more impressed by them in person than in pics. The pics were pretty too, don't get me wrong but in person? WOW. I mean WOW! I saw the Polly and the Stephen. The stephen called me a little more than the polly in all honesty. But if I were to get it then I'd have two stephens (mono and embossed). I guess that's not so bad when you think about people with Speedy's from different lines (epi, mono, damier). But i don't need to buy anything else. ush: I tried on the Polly and it was SOOOO sophisticated. More so than the leopard. Then i tried on the stephen and nearly passed out. Loved it!!! There is something about that bag that I can't get enough of. The SA kept telling me that I should get the Polly over the Stephen. Then an on-looker chimed in and said the Stephen was "just too big" and "looked like I was overdoing it" Ugh. If he only knew that I already have a stephen. LOL. I totally disagreed. its the big bulky look of the stephen that calls me Makes a HUGE statement. Plus there is no vachetta on the embossed. LOL Love it. Anyway I had to drag myself out of the boutique because I really like the embossed line. Its timeless. Gorgeous. The feel of the leather is superb. I do wonder about water and rain though. I forgot to ask that. Sorry for the long post. Go check them out!!!!!
