Hi everyone!! Thanks so much for all of your input. After a long time deciding and what felt like forever in shipping - my beautiful truffle has arrived. Im posting my hasty pics (I took right after picking up the mail and in line to pick up my daughter at school). More later. Such a pretty color and the leather is so soft. One thing I'm going to have to get used to is all the fringe. I love the way it looks, but am already afraid of breaking them and don't know if it will hinder the use of the bag. Any tips? I've already thought about removing one set from one of the zippers. She really is lovely.
