Hi ladies, my previous thread was a reveal on a bag which unfortunately, I have to return it. Lucky for me, my local Prada has got a similar bag & I went & bought it yesterday night. It is smaller than the previous one & it comes with a shoulder strap. Simply perfect for me and I couldn't be happier!











Thanks for letting me share :biggrin:

Quite an obvious imperfection is the metal wordings on the tag. Correct me if I'm wrong, since I've bought it from the store, it must be just really bad workmanship. I don't know about many other brands but I guess with Prada, I have to check the bag thoroughly.

Prada's workmanship is quite frankly crap any more. I picked up one of the saffiano frame satchels in the boutique around a year ago. It was around $4000. The P in Prada way dropped way below the other letters and crooked. My SA knows me well, so I whispered to her while showing her the bag ("Now you see why I stopped buying? And let's not even discuss that this is a $4000 bag...). She agreed. :nogood:

Thank you ladies. I like the bag just because of the blue and red contrast and the red leather interior is so smooth & soft buttery, love it!

Congrats! Beautiful bag and color. What model is this and the designer color name?
I don't rem the code, it's called the double bag, you'll see a section for it if you go on the Prada E-store & the color is Bluette. Hope that helps.

OMG! I am drooling! This is my favorite color combo. I read somewhere that this is the lightest leather tote that Prada ever came up with. I think it is an exaggeration. What is your first hand-experience with it? And do you think you need to baby the bag to avoid scratches?

Sorry for asking a lot but I am sooo tempted to buy this bag :love:

Not sure if it's the lightest, I doubt it. I bought the bigger one at first and had to return it. This is the smaller one and it comes with a strap, I think I like the smaller one better because I'm only 5'3, the big one is too structured and awkward for my height, even though I generally like big bags. I over-baby things most of the time, I guess my biggest concern will be the smooth leather interior, it's really easy to scratch that. Also, maybe I shouldn't put cold water bottle because of condensation, water + leather = not good.

It's okay to ask, that's what this forum is for :biggrin: I think you should have a look at the bag in person if you're interested, if it makes you happy, then go for it! Rem to check it thoroughly. Hope that helps.

Thank you! Yep! I HAVE to see this in person first. I know what you mean about the leather - scratches can drive me nuts! Will have to look at both sizes too. Thanks again for the input! :smile:
