the large black foldover tote has want the good news or the bad news first? okay, the bad news first......


the bad news is........i will probably HAVE to have another one of these. LOL Smiley Wink


the good news is........everything else is beautiful. the tote hardware/straps were beautifully wrapped, then came in the dustbag, then wrapped again in plastic. the leather is super soft, smooth, saturated in color,  and smells good. the tassel is pretty and i like that it is a bit different than some of the other tassels i already  have. the pockets inside are large and deep. the tote, although it is not too wide, is deceivingly large. it holds my laptop computer, a tablet, a phone, a portfolio, a pouch, and several folders/files, and more..... i will definitely be getting a lot of use out of this. it is very professional looking with a little bit of an edge.

@sunshine45Congratulations! What a delightful score! Loved hearing the black leather was lush; that's my current fav.


I ordered the original foldover, hoping to love it, in the brown croco. Just shipped. I'll report in . . .

@BritishGirl - well, what a surprise! No mention of it on Jill's Facebook page or I missed it. Are you getting it? Thanks for the notice.


I'm safe, lol, not crazy about triple compartments.  It's a good looking handbag - exotic options only. I like the Dark Sand print.

I did see this under new arrivals and I really like it.  It looks structured and I really do like the three compartments for organization.  I have to wait & see how I like the Roma 4 in Blue Cobra before I order this.  I really don't need two exotics.

My socks are safe. First, I'm tired of the fixation on snake... Then, there's the price... Finally, I'd like the silhouette, but they should've stuck with the metal handles and either skipped the straps or found a way to make them removable and less obvious. As it is, there's a bit too much going on.
