So much for my ban! Oh well. I have been wanting a gold bag for a long time for the upcoming Holidays. I bought and returned the gold madison- did not like the gold patent. So after seeing this gold bag on a member here I ordered it from Saks. It's a very bright bronze/gold in a textured lambskin. I like it a lot more than the madison. What do you guys think of it? At first I wasn't sure, but its growing on me. Still not 1000% positive, but I do like it. Definitely a special occasion bag. Oh and as a special gift the SA left the sensor on it for me.
