So, since I didn't get to check out any handbags on Saturday while shopping with my Mom. I posted a thread here asking for opinions about hardware http://forum.purseblog.com/michael-kors/hamilton-patent-or-leather-help-657175.html So my DD and I went to take a look on Sunday. I found exactly what I was looking for!!!!!! I couldn't believe it. I thought Macys had them, but couldn't remember if I only saw the small/medium or the large. Well, they had the large and I brought her home!!! Then, I took pictures and was already to share my excitement and tPF was down for maintenance last night!!! Thanks for eveyone's opinions in the other thread and helping me decide! I brought home a large black leather Hamilton with GOLD hardware!!!! She is just to die for! The leather is soft (not as stiff as my luggage Hamilton) and absolutely lovely. I immediately came home, took the tags off and got her ready for her first trip out of the house today. I'm really loving this bag!!! Thanks for sharing my excitement!
