Thanks so much for your words of encouragement. I really do love the work, I just have to get used to the fact that it's not jet black coal as I expected.
The boys responded that yes, they were sure they sent me a black and not an anthra.
I have to say though. I can't get over the fact that it really DOES sparkle. I've checked it out with a magnifying glass and it's not just light reflection. There appear to be microglitter bits embedded in the leather.
Hope everyone has a great weekend. I've been carrying my neverfull and really love it.
Luckyns: Sometimes Jacky or Catty will make a bag if they get asked enough, and see that there is enough interest in it to be worth making. If you really like it, try sending them e-mails. I e-mailed them both earlier asking them about it. Jacky said that he'll consider it! Still waiting reply from Catty.
Thanks! I am going to email Jacky and Catty as well. Cross fingers....
uh...yeah, catty's gemma is very off to say the least.
smkelly - i have a black day with GSH that could probably pass for anthra. it has been a lighter black since day 1. my anthra club was shipped my parents house because i spent almost a month there over the holidays and assummed the bag would get to me since it was mailed in early december. it didn't, but i'll be visiting my family again in march so i'll pick it up then. my mother definitely called it black over the phone, so i am guessing my black day GSH and anthra club will be similar. that said, the day was made far before the boys even attempted anthra (i bought this bag in february of 2008), so some black bags must come out lighter than others.
i would also love a thick, matte city, but it's so up-in-the-air as to what leather i'll get, so i just sit tight for bagswap.
do you prefer fashion victim or ensemble-y challenged?
Thanks for those pictures, Parkmin! I need this bag.
I think Catty's is the large size, which doesn't have a shoulder strap and larger handles so you can fit it over your shoulder. I definitely prefer the medium size.
Amyiish- I'm very interested in the Chloe Gemma in the khaki color! Let's all cross our fingers that Jacky will be making the medium size and in different colors! Thanks for introducing me to the bag. I didn't know it existed.
