Later that day I gave in, and purchased the bag and I'm very happy I did. It's a beautiful bag and although it's a bright post box red I have realised I could wear it with so much.
My only problem with this bag is the size. I'm used to small bags, I don't tend to carry around a lot of junk so I seem to lose things to the bottom of this suitcase! Many a minute has been spent outside my apartment whilst I search for my keys!
