The Bal Fairy must really be smiling on me (and at my checkbook...) I've mentioned before that I am a F/W shopper. None of the S/S swatches really tugged at my heart strings except for Sahara. I saw pictures of Sahara with SGH on this forum and it was . So I decided my S/S 08 purchase would be a Sahara Day with SGH. I placed the order through my local retailer/reseller last week and it came in today. I had my doubts and was afraid to open the bag (Mastic was a disappointment and I didn't want a repeat). One look and I went . This color is just worthy! I don't think I've seen pics to do it justice. It's a very rich beige and the leather is soft and smooshy. 1st pic - without flash, indoors by a window. 2nd and 3rd pics - with flash, indoors. Actual color is closer to these pics. The caramel undertones really show through on this bag. This is true I feel even more thrilled than when I found my Mint 05 Turqouise Day! I've also added a few pics of a few other "recent" acquisitions. I've been busy with work and the baby and haven't had time to upload pictures. For all those that helped me decide on the Brief, here's a pic of my 07 Black one c/o Seiko at Aloha Rag. I've been carrying it nonstop over the last 2 weeks. Last pic is of my small accessories collection - Mogano Make-Up from hgbags (have had this for a while now), Black CP and Violet CP. I am also getting an Ocean CP in a few days , my last for a while.
