Hi ladies ... I was one of the lucky ladies who got an aubergine paddy from NAP last week. Can I tell you I LOVE this bag? The color is just amazing, it changes in different light but mostly it's this rich dark brown with a purple tint to it. Anyway, the only thing is it is heavy!! The bag itself is very heavy, probably due to the leather. I had always been intrigued by the paddy but I am not much of a gold person and I wasn't sure about the huge padlock. But seeing the lovely aubergine paddy with silver hardware, and the 50% off price I knew I had to get it, and I am so glad I did. I wore it yesterday when I went shopping with DH. When I set the bag down on the floor in the car, he looked over, and said 'Wow, there is a HUUUGE padlock on your bag!' like someone telling you you have something on your teeth or something. I cracked up and said 'Yeah it's a huge padlock alright'. Then he just shrugged and went on his way. Men, they are so clueless!
