I received the tomatoe red blake AND the tapioca blake this week!! I LOVE them both, but am sending back the tapioca..:Push: When you see the pics you'll think I'm crazy..The combination of color/stitching/hardware is unbelievable...The pics really do no justice...I am def keeping the red one..It will forever be my classic red bag..One issue w/ the blake however is the reason I (already) sent the tapioca one back...The outside strap keeps flopping off when I wear it on my shoulder...Never read anything about this..Maybe it's just My shoulder (?!)...I was playing dress up with the red blake today and discovered if I 'tuck' the outside strap underneath the inside strap it stays better....I noticed this when I was shopping Wednesday..It was somewhat annoying as I was conscious about it..Looks rather odd with a stiff handle hanging 45 degrees off my shoulder....so most of the time I carried it in the crook of my arm but it's hard to do that with shopping bags!! Anyways, I can easily deal with this issue with the red one, but decided it wasn't worth it to deal with with (2) of the same...As I'm SURE I will be buying more bags..I was afraid I wouldn't rotate that bag in as often as I should for that kind of $$ and it would work it's way to the 'seldom used' shelf....Don't want this to happen so I will look for another bag in this color combo....Let me know what you think!! :heart: Emmy

If it's not perfect, perhaps choose another purse? The blakes are gorgeous and I love the three compartments, but they are very heavy to hold on the crook of your arm the whole time. Beautiful colors though!

Wow, tomato red is TDF! I love the contrast of the silver hardware and I definitely think you made the right choice. I've had double straps do that to me before and it can be super annoying! Congrats on your BEAUTIFUL new bag! :love:

Me too thithi..It is gorgeous...but I just don't want to have to deal w/ the strap issue on (2) bags..Thinking about the large multi pocket in that same combo...I'll have to ask bag.lover what styles come in tapioca...:heart: Emmy

Emmy, these are the items that are available in Tapioca. =)

SOFT CALF: Diane, Classic Hobo, Newbury, Venetia, Blake, LG Multipocket, Multipocket

SOFT CALF SLG (small leather goods): Zip Clutch, Zip Wallet, Credit Card Case, Double Face Wallet, Key Pouch

There are 3 other SOFT CALF styles for Resort 06 (Eva, Satchel, Shoulder Bag). I overlooked the colors so I'm not sure if Tapioca is one of them.
