I'm having a dilemma and need your input. I've been lusting over a sloane for the longest time and couldn't decide between getting it in shadow or blood color. I usually wear neutral colors like black, grey, browns, blues, rust (brownish-oranage) and toffee colors. I really need your input on the choice!
Both colors will work with your wardrobe but it depends on the way you use it as well- I think a shadow sloane will be great for work and pair really well with your wardrobe, but for me personally any red or bright may be too much on a sloane, which is a relatively large bag. I have a sloane and it is quite a lot of leather. Something to consider if you don't want to stand out too much.
Personally I would get the blood. A pop of colour (but not too much and Blood looks like a nice darkish red maroon) always brightens up a neutral outfit. I am slightly more extreme - I wear lots if neutral stuff to work and I often match my clothes with my red bal and my orange veneta
I have a shadow and it's an extremely versatile color as with most grey/taupe shades, it goes with anything. I used to have a red sloane and while it doesn't always go with EVERYTHING, every time I did carry it, I received tons of compliments and it's just eye catching. You can't go wrong with either. I think it comes down to whether you want that pop or not:)
