My husband made a rather savvy move over the holidays. . . he bought me a sweet bag. Seriously, nice move. A total surprise and one he picked out all by himself. And he did GOOD! I really love the style of the bag. . . and I have not had a Kate Spade bag in over 5 years. Oh how I wish I still had my very first one - her original 1997 black canvas box bag. What a dream that one was! Anyway, this one, with it's luscious, buttery leather with a slightly curved fold-over flap (one of my very favorite features) that lightly snaps with a magnet is beautiful. The only tiny little thing. . . is the color. What do you think? I mean, I love color. I'm covered in colors and pattern almost everyday. . . but in a purse, I really love an orangey, saddle brown or a metallic, or something. . .and though orangey, this one is a bit more pinky, salmony (wow, do I need help with my colorful adjectives). I'm just not sure it's right. Hubs has been so sweet to say please exchange it and get what I want, to which I have to respond, "I DO love it! I'm just not sure about the color." Problem is if I get another color, I have to give up the style, as the only other option (at Nordstrom) in this style is black. Black is just not an option for me, or is it? Perhaps I should consider a black bag...??? But, I just don't carry black bags (since, ironically, that first Kate Spade) I always think they look lovely on other people, but I just can't commit to a black bag these days. It just won't do for me. If you have thoughts on this color and other possibilities, please let me know. I can't wait to bust it out, so the decision must be made this weekend. Either way, I'll keep you posted. And wish me luck. . . such a big decision!
