Isn't she lovely? The leather is absolutely gorgeous. Wonderfully thick, slightly shiny, and distressed. It took me 2 exchanges until the SAs at BalNY finally understood what kind of leather I wanted. I'm assuming with constant use over time, the leather will become less shiny and more matte. I can't wait! 1st Picture- In daylight with no flash. It is the most accurate color depiction of a tomato red twiggy. A beautiful, true red with no blue or orange undertones. 2nd Picture- With flash. The leather on the backside of my twiggy looks so chewy! 3rd Picture- Without flash in dark light. Looks almost like a rouge vif. I love how the twiggy slouches ever so casually. I love love love it! . The leather is almost like 2005 but shinier. This is my first b-bag and I'm certain it won't be the last. It took me so long to find the right color/leather (and the right SA- thanks Kim!). I'll have more pictures in the future of me wearing it. But for now, enjoy!
