Oh Joy!

Rarely do I see Savvy Sis at a lost for words but speechless is exactly the right description. Any gal can become quite excitable when she sees an orange box but when that box holds a 35 cm Birkin bag then she becomes speechless. My brother-in-law was afraid she might not like it when she just sat there silently. Hello, it's a Birkin! What a silly man! It's one of the more interesting Birkin I have seen in a while. It's chocolate brown Swift leather with beige horsehair weave, which is more light weight than all leather 35 cm Birkin. How does this benefit SG, you might ask? Well, we borrow bags from each other. Having a bag loving sister means our bag inventory doubles without the need to spend an extra penny. As for me, I was surprised with a Bottega Veneta large long wallet in red. I guess I don't need to shop for a wallet/clutch anymore. It's really roomy inside for all my credit cards (8 credit card slots), receipts, cash, coins and even enough room for my cellular phone (it's a very slim phone). I will definitely be using this as a clutch for an evening out.
As with any BV piece, the leather is super fine and soft. I accidentally put a tiny scratch on the inside already. Sad! There are other colors and slightly different styles with the same configuration on the inside. I love the bright blue and orange from the Spring 2009 collection.
I feel like a child this Christmas in particular with all the unexpected presents from family members. I am just so thankful and happy we are all able to celebrate this time together in perfect health, which is the greatest gift above all. Peace & Love everyone!
