Wahay about time too! After all the hassle with customs charging me too much VAT, my lil' scarlett has finally made it home!(the seller listed the retail price on the shipping form, and not the price I paid! Im able to claim the difference back, but its hassle! ) I love the colour as I wanted it to match my coat. That sounds crazy but the UK's unpredictable weather means that 85% of the year you will be wearing a coat, and black or brown doesnt go with my coat Im wearing in the pic, but the desert colour of this kooba goes well I reckon! The scarlett looks darker in the pics of it on my shoulder, but thats because if I used the flash there would have been a glare in the mirrror The scarlett leather is fabulous! Soooo soft but strong! Now I understand why everyone talks about 'fondling' koobas! Im off to put some protector spray on her now, then Im going out later to introduce my scarlett to the sights of London!
