    Thanks Luvmyrms. I am expecting the bag next week. will post modeling pics then!

    Jeanie, i love your bag and its color. I agree B.Makowsky bags have awesome butter soft leather. I am not sure why you say they get dirty easily I used leather protector on mine and it is fine. the only compliant i have with mine is that the bag tends to be very heavy. As long as you don't overload the bag, i think it will be great. it looks gorgeous!

    Thanks Luvmyrms and Vidya, I am probably going to keep it...

    Vidya: I had a deep blue Makowsy bag before and one trip to a restaurant got it stained and I could not get the stain out, and it got scratched that same day, it was like bad luck for my bag that day....
    I was upset and did not want to carry it anymore, I wasn't sure how to get the stain or scratch out, so I got rid of it...
    What leather protector did you use on yours?

    I generally buy a leather protector from Wilson's leather at the mall. I have tried the leather protection spray from Payless Shoes and it is pretty good too.
    For fabric bags i used scotchguard for handbags.

    I think the color is pretty and the Makowsky bags have super soft leathers.
    Personally, I would save that $$ and put it towards something that I LOVED.

    I just picked up this B.Makowsky bag at my local Nordstrom Rack for only 150.00

    It is called the Portland N/S tote in denim blue.

    I thought it would be great to tote around when I head to the beach and stuff...

    What I like about it is no matter what I put in it, it stays flat and lays close to my body, and I love the zipper toward the bottom, I can get my wallet, lipstick and my keys in there, easy to get to, and I love the cell pocket on the back.
    As usual the softness, and color of the leather are to die for!

    my problem is..... his bags seem to get dirty very easily and I worry how to clean them,
    and the Makowsky bags can get heavy with a lot of stuff in them.....
    or for 150.00 should I just enjoy it and not even worry about it?
    I don't know, what do you all think??

    I say if you love it, keep it.
    Just get a leather sealer and spray away. For $150 you can't beat that.

    I need a dress or two for my high school reunion so I spent an insane amount of time and money at Bluefly.com. This way I don't have to go anywhere to try on dresses (I hate that) and I can ship back whatever I don't want. I think I ordered 25 or more dresses. This is going to be a BIG box. But there has to be one in there that I love, right?

    I also got some stuff for my girls at the Skivveydoodles Hautelook sale. Or was it Ruelala?

    Over the weekend:

    At American Eagle: 2 bracelets, 2 pairs of jeans, 2 graphic tees, pair of gold sandals, & a pair of sunglasses. Everything that had a white tag was an additional 30% off so I ended up paying $70.00 for everything. Oh, and groceries...

    Dress shirts with ties for my 2 boys for an upcoming wedding reception.

    Hopefully the little guy will keep his clean at least for the first half hour
