hi everyone! thanks for helping me out this morning and for all your comments in choosing a new cles...well, I did it and got the Vernis Cles in Framboise at the SF LV this afternoon and boy is she a beauty. She is so pretty I honestly don't know how to begin using her. I'm scared to attach keys or even put her on my speedy for fear of scratching the hardware. :shame: I think I'll just admire her for a few days before I put her to use. I really loved the look of the Perle against the Damier canvas of my speedy, but I did not want to have to be so diligent with it and worry about color transfer and yellow discoloration over the years.... so...here she is!! I'd like to add that I also put my name down for a Damier Azur Speedy 25 coming out Nov 1st!! My SA also assured me that the colors are a bluish-gray with cream as opposed to white..but I'm sure many of you already know that!! thanks for looking and thanks for all your help!
