thank you everyone, i am OVER THE MOON ECSTATIC!!!
i have been wanting one for so long, and finally she is here... funny i could not resist taking her out when i went to get my nails done, and the ladies there were ooh-ing and ahh-ing, it was a little embarassing, i had never had that much attention towards a bag before. 2 of the ladies even came over and "petted" my bag... not so sure how i felt about that, especially considering how "delicate" this bag is... makes me a little nervous.
i had already sprayed it down with Apple Gard water & stain repellent though, so hopefully that will help with the bleeding issues. this bag is just so gorgeous, even the pictures do not do it justice! i'd never seen one in real life, and it is so soft, lightweight, and has this sheen to it. the paintings themselves are just to die for, the detail is exquisite. can't help staring at her....:shame:
