Alright ladies, GF thought I was kidding when I said I bit the bullet and succumbed to the power of the spots, but the FedEx man just delivered my spotted swan in its 28cm retourne form. I was very pleased to find that the bag was in amazing, like-new condition, with plastic still on parts of the hardware. This is the grey on black version, in Buffalo Skipper leather, and I have to say that pictures don't do this Kelly justice. The overall look and finish of this bag is marvelous (to me at least)--the white is almost a pearlescent grey so the overall look looks like metallic gunmetal grey. It's okay if you think it's hideous; I've been utterly fascinated by it for the past few years and thought it was finally time to add one to the family. I think David Gest (Liza's ex) was voted as one of the most fascinating/weirdest people (you can't stop looking at him) by the UK Mirror...this is how I feel about the Dalmation. A few notes about the Dalmation: the stamping and craftsman's marks are not in its usual place because it would not be noticeable. Didn't want to go into details at first, but then again, I somehow don't think this is bag will be at the top of a counterfeiter's list KWIM? Anyhow, I'll take some more modeling pix another day. Am at home in bed with a cold and didn't think I'd add to the bag's already bad rep by modeling it in my PJs . Also took a pic of the small Bagmate w/Bearn inside the 28cm which fits nicely.
