Forever Faithful

Admittedly, I did not love this bag until I saw it in person.  In photos it looked busy and awkward but pictures, as we all know, do not tell the full story.  This is a bag that needs to be cuddled to be fully appreciated.  When held, it is soft with a slight slouchiness and the gently sloped shape keeps it from looking sloppy.  In black it was super edgy but the new soft shades are a gorgeous spin on this industry favorite.  I’m leaning towards the camel color for Fall– how beautiful will it be with deep purple and chocolate hued clothes!  Coral and rich reds also rule for A/W 2010 and the pastel colors will be the perfect complement to your new wardrobe.

    Don’t think it suits the girly colours black would be nice however 🙂

    I would dismiss it purely on the basis that it looks far too similar with the Balenciaga satchel. Sorry..

    Love the color and the shape, but it’s way too busy. Too bad because that’s a pretty pink color.

    Totally agree with Kelly, I always see it as a piggy, especially in these colors.

    That’s funny, Kelly X! Now, thanks to you, I cannot see past the piggy face when I see this bag. Oink, oink!

    It is a little busy [I prefer a shoulder strap or a handle–not both]; but I dig the pink one. The camel is a little blah.
