I really appreciate all the honest replies...I hope to hear some more. I guess I should have mentioned I can still return this. SA told me to take it home and try it out with outfits so, I haven't actually taken out in the real world yet.
I like animal prints and this one is lovely, but there has been so much done in animal print, I would be concerned about spending all that on a D&G bag that looks like it could be from anyone. For me, it isn't distinctly D&G any more.
