Love at first sight;) My new work bag:biggrin: First BV and first brown bag EVER! Hard to believe I know...but until now I have been a diehard black bag gal. I've enjoyed looking through this thread the past few days as I made my BV selection. This is the PERFECT work bag!

I am a BV newbie, so I have a few questions for the BV experts:

1) Is this Nappa Umbria? I like the 'chubby' leather so I am thinking NU:P
2) The bag is brand spanking new from the BV boutique, but the tag is '07? Is '07 great BV leather like balenciaga was? Or in BV the year really doesn't matter its all great?
3) How smooshy does a Roma get over time?

I also got my 2nd BV:nuts:
- Padfolio Cover -
I loved it in black leather, as usual:P
But I don't mind at all the black/brown combo inside the bag. My work bag/accessory needs are met, finally!

Another Q - does anyone else use their Roma as a laptop bag? It fits perfectly and doesn't sag the bag and stays put in its own compartment...I've tried so many bags over the years for this purpose, its hard to believe I finally found the one!

Congrats! The most classic BV color! I'm not sure about the answers to your questions other than #2, which is BV leather is gorgeous and highly desirable, regardless of the year :smile:
Enjoy your new bag! :smile:

Beautiful! Congratulations.

I was never sure about the Roma, it always looked too small on pictures but I was allowed to hold a few in SF and oh my... i might get in trouble one day :nuts:

brunettetiger - Yum, Yum! BV leather is lovely and there was not that Napa/Chevre 05-08 debacle that Balenciaga had. BV leather is pretty consistent.

I have a Roma in Moro, which is a darker chocolate. My laptop fits inside, but I do not use it that way.

Congrats and welcome to BV!

Ebano is such a yummy color and I love the roma. The perfect work bag for sure! My first BV was a roma too.

Enjoy it in the best of health and thanks for sharing!
