And she’s perfect! The color, which SA Christopher said would work as a winter bag, is just right, and of course the leather and overall creative design are a feast. The colors are cement and steel, I believe, so the bag reads gray or in some lights, taupe-y. I love a small EW satchel with the added bonus of a strong magnetic closure, a favorite for me.

So here she is, and below is the coat, new last winter, that I bought her for primarily. After years and years of always reverting to the warmth of one black puffer coat, I sprung for this shearling but then I found myself wearing a monolith of brown. When I saw this bag, I knew it was the one because it “feels” like the coat, adds real visual interest and is just the right size with easy access.

Thanks again papertiger :flowers:

P.S. in true BV style, the color changes strongly with the light:smile:

My Campana is also arriving Monday. :yahoo: (Just not from Florida). The seller thankfully didn't pay extra for UPS Saturday delivery, since I have my bags delivered to work so I can sign for them during the day. We are all getting so much BV eye candy on the Forum lately!!! :hbeat::hbeat::hbeat::hbeat::hbeat:

Thank you everyone for your enthusiasm and :tup::tup::tup:.

Indiaink, without whom this would never have happened, do forgive me for mixing up your screen name with papertiger’s. I confess that there are three tPF screen names that my ditzy brain regularly confuses ... papertiger, indiaink, and quellefromage ... all creatively interesting names, though highly distinct people. Cheers! :smile:

You are forgiven - to be in the company of @papertiger and @QuelleFromage is quite the honor! :hbeat:
