Anyways initially I had bid on a lovely Ruby Deco which as I mentioned here was my favourite colour. Would you believe that in the 5 minutes it took for me to leave office and get to the bus stop I was outbid! I was extremely annoyed. But then a certain enabler named Jotje came to the rescue and told me that another one was up for auction. Although it was the Ivory, I decided to go for it! Friends I even got up at 5 one morning to make sure that I won the damn thing. And I am so not a morning person. If that isn't dedication to a cause, I don't know what is! So finally getting my Deco was the seventh reason I was
So here are some photos. My camera and the lighting struggled to do it justice as it is really beautiful. It is also darker than I expected but somehow I think the Ivory represents understated class compared to the obvious bling of the Ruby. Not that I have a problem with bling. Just sayin'!
I also placed it on a purple velvet cushion for the pics. After all, my Deco is royalty, just like her owner!
|Front view. The leather is sublime!|
|Close up of the clasp. It is utterly fabulous. And very easy to open.|
|Back pocket which can open to hold a lot of stuff.|
|A stylish posterior view!|
What do you think?
PS I think I shall get this instead as my new consultant treat in 4 years time! Ssshhh. Don't tell DH. It will be our little secret ;-)
