I know most of us are moving on to Spring '09 but I have one more reveal from Spring '08. Thanks to Iluvmybags' VIP connection at the MJ store in Chicago, I got a BNWT boutique exclusive Apricot Mika at a deep discount.

This bag is GORGEOUS! From the moment the Fedex lady handed my husband the really heavy box (marked 10 lbs but it was more like 5), I knew this bag was a keeper.

I've made you guys wait so long already so here are some pics. Thanks for counting down with me. This is definitely worth the wait! :flowers:

Xi!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :nuts:
I am so excited you scored this! The Mika is such a fantastic bag. Its way more versatile and useful than you would think IMO. Ak! I'm gushing! I'm gushing and I have one:Push:
This color combo is so, so , so pretty! Bright and lovely, but also neutral in a strange way. . .
Congrats!!!!!!
