Only after I uploaded the photos then I realized how odd it looks as an empty bag. I should have filled it with stuff first before posing with it immediately. Ah well- too lazy to take another shot.
I've sort of tried but can't seem to give up leather. Must try harder. Who knows. Maybe one day I'll switch entirely to fabric and recycled bags. I really really like leather. :( That smell! The smell of new leather is simply intoxicating, each time. This leather is divine, but it looks best after some stretching and usage. Then it becomes supple.
It's not the usual bright orange. It's a little muted. And it does come in two other colors if you ask the store about it. :p It's interesting precisely because it's not a dainty sort of bag. It's very hardy. You can grab it out to the malls or it can become a casual tote. No frills. This one is as bland as can be. and that's precisely what I like about these lines in the label.
