It is a lovely bag! A beautiful shade of caramel brown (does have an orange undertone to it) and I love the texture. The leather is somewhat soft, but not of the smooshy, chewy leather sort, but as you can see from the picture of it smooshed, it is not super structured. I love having the option of a shoulder strap and I was quite surprised that it has the new lining because the website showed polka dots. I like having something new because I'm all about variety.
I give this bag an A- and the minus comes from a scratch I found on the handle this morning. It is maybe half an inch and there is a definite difference in color from the rest of the handle. Should I bring this up to LB even though I took the tag off?
