I purchased the taupe stam back in the summer from NM. It is from '05 collection and have never carried it until Monday. I had heard about the kisslock issue but did not realize my bag would have the same problem . I spoke with my SA and she is going to send a carrier to pick it up and return it. In place of this bag which one should I get. Black stam that bag.lover described at bloomies, chestnut or the other neutral color ( I forgot the color ush: ). Any recommendations. I am so disappointed. Yesterday was my bday and I was so excited about carrying my bag. I have also been considering the elise, not sure which color thou. I need you PF MJ experts!
