It's very beautiful ta-ta, and just as amazing as it looked online (and that's rare in bags)!!
Did you take it out yet?... How (im)practical is it?

^ Thanks, girls

You're right, m&c, I hadn't thought about it, but the pix are very accurate. I saw it originally in person ...

I was going to wait till after Labor Day to change bags, but since you guys wanted pix, I went ahead & changed now in order to get an accurate picture. The top kind of ... slumps a little more when there's stuff in the bag. It really is working just fine for me ... as described, what I carry is fairly pared down, but not extremely so (every lipstick I own is in my makeup bag).

Because the bag is so soft, it can be a challenge to close the clasp depending on how the stuff inside is arranged ... there's kind of a trick to it, which you learn quickly.

ta-ta, thanks for the picture and write-up, the bag definitely looks great!
I have to admit that I am distracted by your red mary-janes in the picture as well (I have a weakness for red shoes...)

^ Congratulations!! My last bag was leopard ... very fun. But doesn't mix with purple/grey tweed, which is why I needed this one

PS PrincessImp, you are not the first to be distracted by them I'm certain I've gotten more comments on them than any other shoes I've ever owned.

^ That's interesting, our primo Nordstrom here doesn't carry Lanvin bags ... I wish they did so I could've gotten points

Got my Sept Bazaar, and they show a bunch of similar Lanvin bags, but thankfully not this one.

Grill, do you think it would be better with tiny little feet?

Fashionista - yes, feet would be better.

I actually ended up returning the leopard - I think the leather versions are better value than the embossed calf hair - with the jewelled chain handle and the saggy body construction the whole shebang wasn't gonna be holding up for long. I still think this is a very pretty bag but my husband wasn't having it - he loves the H Kelly.

^ I absolutely agree ... my last bag was hair calf & it's really unbelievably fragile. The leather I think will wear quite well.

Btw, as my bag has settled in a bit, I'm seeing what the shape is really meant to be. Took a few weeks ... At least, that is my interpretation of what's happening

Just wanted to mention that I learned from the current Vogue that the Happy Sac also comes in denim courtesy of the Acne collaboration. There's a small picture in the magazine ...

Stopped by to mention that the clasp fell off my bag last week I actually found all the pieces (eventually), but Barney's offered to replace it, and I took them up on it, thinking I may not be so lucky next time. So waiting for the new bag to come in ...
