Hey y'all! I am lying in bed as I type. I have a horrible cold (which I thought might be the flu, but I tested negative), and the only thing that got me thru my classes, a midterm, and the doctor's office was knowing I had a bag waiting on me at my door!!! :P

I'll just post pics right away since I said in several threads I was waiting on this lovely bag!

Drumroll.............it's the Royal/Brown BW MAC from Luna Boston!! I got this beauty for 25% off plus $45 more off b/c I used my luxe points. It's gorgeous in person. I love the contrast of the dark blue and brown, and I think it will be a great neutral MAC, but with a fun twist!

The new polka dot lining looks like it was made to go with this leather combo:


Pic with a new Echo scarf I bought (I know it kinda looks like a LQ knock-off but I figure I have 5 of those, so I can have one LQ "inspired" scarf!). Love it with the teal!


And one more with flash:

Also, i have become obsessed with the changing strap lengths of the different MACs I own. My first MAC was a grape MAC and it was the perfect length for me. I can wear it cross-body and it hits nice and low. Then I got a Teal MAC and the strap seems SO much smaller. Next I got a Black MAC and it seemed like it was in between the two I already have. Well.......luckily for me the Royal/Brown BW has the longest strap of them ALL!!!

I had to take pics to show this. I know they can't all be the same length, but I was really surprised by the differences.

I lined them all up together, here's the order:
Teal MAC
Black MAC
Grape MAC
Royal/Brown BW MAC

Here's the differences in their lengths:


So like I said the Teal is by far the shortest and my new one is by far the longest.



Am I crazy :wacko: or has anyone else noticed this!?!

Thanks so much, ladies! I :heart: the leather combo and the antique gold hardware together! It really gives it a vintage look!

Gorgeous, congrats! I am loving this combo, and I never thought I would!
I didn't think I liked it either. Then I saw pink1 and fashnonmymind's pics and I fell in love!

Courtney great bag, great scarf and really great nailpolish!! That should have you feeling better in no time!
I was hoping no one would notice the polish! I had that pink color on, then it started chipping and I never took it off, then I saw that blue/green color and tried in on my thumb. Sufficed to say my nails look like a 3 year old did them right now! :P

Hope you feel better soon, Court! Love your new MAC and I just agree, the lining goes well with it. Holy smokes, I have not realized the different strap lengths. That's a bit annoying.

Ha,ha! Yeah I'm pretty short too (5'4) but I'm a bit "hippy" so I think some of length of my straps are taken up by crossing over them! :P

Courtney she is beautiful! I didn't think I would like this color combo either but the pics are so pretty. Knowing you have a new bag waiting for you at home can brighten the darkest day :P Feel better soon!
