    Now, I know my birthday isn't until Monday but since I bought this yesterday and didn't open it until tonight, I think I get credit for being a very good girl. LOL!

    I had a wonderful visit at Lennox Mall in Atlanta with Claude and he let me look at some incredibly gorgeous bags! A Petit Malle that was studded all over and the new Twist with the rivet-type metals all over were SO hard to leave there! So many wonderful bags!

    Anyway, the last bag I asked to look at was just a whim because I know so little about it. I have been intrigued by it since it came out, but haven't ever put my hands on it. Once I looked at the black one, I had to look at every color. I knew immediately it was the one.

    First I looked at the black, which was beautiful and then the Cerise, and then the one Raisin in the store. The Raisin is a perfect compromise between the two. Color while still being so versatile! I haven't seen much Raisin on here, yet.
     
  3. I'm going to put several pictures of different angles since I haven't seen the Alma BnB much.

    I love how deep and soft the 2 pockets are on the sides. I love the idea of the new Empriente Speedy having the side pockets but my one Empriente Speedy keeps me a little nervous so I didn't really want to go that route again.

    I also love the shoulder strap that comes with it. I have come to realize I use bags more often if I know I have the opportunity to toss it on my shoulder if I must have both hands.

    Also, I have several Alma's but I love how this one is softer, bigger, and even easier to get into.

    I find these pictures to be pretty true to what I would say the color actually is. It might be just a tiny bit deeper than the pictures but not by much.

    Also, I really like the clean, straight seam on the bottom. I don't set my purses anywhere that I have to really worry about feet, and I find most the time the feet are pretty useless. I like how clean the bottom is.
