I already said this before and I'll say it again, leather Pradas make for a very practical everyday handbag -- stylish and requires no maintenance despite the soft leather. I have been using mine all the time and managed to reduce the cost per use to about .6% of the bag's price. Now that's what I'd call getting my money's worth!!
* The burgundy Vit Daino I got last Christmas by cleverly pulling a Birkin scare now lives in MIL's closet. I decided to give it to her for Christmas! It was so fun to see her expression opening the bag -- she was giddy like a little girl!!!
