So Mr. Fedex arrived a day earlier than expected, and I received my sample sale Lime large bowler. I was realllly excited, but now to be honest, I am slightly disappointed because the color is just not what I was expecting. On the website they looked like a pale spring-y green, but IRL it is actually MUCH darker green! (I attached a pic of the bag with flash, and the second is without. The 2nd is probably the closest to what it actually looks like...it may even be a bit darker IRL.) I have just never been much of a green person, probably because I do not wear the color well with my skin tone etc., and I was excited because I thought it was going to be a pale mint green, but now i am not sure how I feel about it. On the positive side, the leather is sooo smooshy, buttery soft...softer than all my other LP's (I didn't think Lp bags could BE any softer, but I was wrong...this is the softest yet!) And, there aren't any flaws, marks or scratches, so whew. Also love the way it feels on my shoulder, and the large bowler is a great size. So in conclusion, I love the size & style and the leather, but not crazy about the color...(too bad I can't exchange it for the camel now!). I don't know if I should sell it on ebay or give it to a friend, or just keep it and see if it grows on me...what are your opinions??
