Hi everyone!

I used to hang out a lot in the LV/Chanel forum, but then lost interest in those brands and nowadays you can find me in Coach most of the time. I was surfing the blog one day, and saw this gorgeous bag in a post... sadly, by the time I clicked on the link to Saks it was already sold out! Long story short, I managed to track one down and ordered one on the phone. It's not perfect BUT since I'm so happy with the bag itself (and I'm glad I was able to find out before they completely sold out) I'm keeping it! :biggrin:

This bag is amazing IRL. Some of the photos online do it justice (a couple of photos on RM's Instagram for example) but the different colors are kind of hard to capture at once! In low lighting it's a deep metallic blue...then there's a seafoam green... and where the light shines directly, there's a green-golden ish yellow! The yellow is the hardest to capture on photos, even though I see it the most often. Maybe in sunlight it'll be different!

My husband was a little :wtf: when I unwrapped this...it's so different than what I typically buy (I'm a Chanel flap/structured tote/conservative bag kind of girl) but lately I've been looking at more unique bags to add to my conservative collection--more colors, more textures, more prints! I have nothing like this in my collection.

Anyway, enough typing... onto photos...

The yellow was much more prominent to my eyes when I snapped this photo...it doesn't translate here...

The material feels like plastic (not in a cheap kind of way, but it's not exactly supple) but it's surprisingly leather. I have no idea how they did this!

The closure is really cool...

The color looks really light here...IRL it's much more metallic/dark

And mod pics... I'm 5'7" size 6/8 and the strap was at its longest here:

Logo tag...very cool...I'm considering detaching this and using it as a luggage tag (the last time someone took my luggage by mistake when we were on vacation... thankfully I got it back within an hour!)

And last one: side zippers unzipped. I prefer them zipped up!

Anyway, that is all... glad to have found another designer to love! I'm eyeing the mini MAC and the Amorous satchel right now too!

Thanks for dropping by!

Holy Batman!!! Whoa this is so gorgeous!!! I love metallics and I most certainly love on this style! It's the metallic color that is in the homepage for the RM forum right? I have been wondering what that bag was.. it's same metallic but it has a bow, But this is more beautiful. It's beautiful! Lucky girl!!!!

This is so gorgeous! It's nice to see other RM bags on here other than the classics.

Yes, it's the exact same bag...I see where you might have thought there's a bow, but it's really the same bag! It's just the dark lighting!

Congrats!! I was dying to see pictures in this bag style. I got the Ceilia Saddle mini style holo and it's perfect. This was the one I wanted but I'm glad I went with my choice

Thanks! I was going to purchase the Ceilia in case I couldn't get the Elle, but was really hoping for this in my search since the Ceilia strap drop is too short for me to wear cross body!

This is just soooo Gorgeous!! I managed to checkout with one few days ago on the saks site, but got a cancelation notice 4 days later.....so, i kind of gave up and tried to forget about it... But, after seeing your pictures, it made me want it again and began my search...I finally too managed to track one down today from the St. Louis store... turns out they had one left!! Sooooo excited! Enjoy your bag! It will definitely turn heads for sure!!
