Ooh, I would say medium. I am toying with the idea of the medium in gold hardware too, except that I have spent too much on jewelry this month. I like the medium better than the jumbo for this colour because I find the jumbo, which is more of a practical bag and hence subjected to more "abuse", may work better in a darker colour. I think the light beige in medium will be a perfect dress bag, if you know what I mean.
Hmmm Ermmmm EHhhh ERRrrrrrrrr AHhhhhh x 10000000000000000000
Jumbo Flap!!! my opinion: Sucha gorgeous soothing elegant color, the bigger the better. This beautiful light beige i believe is a classic color which is going to be available all the time right? I told myself if I can't get my holygrail color in jumbo flap this year, I will get it in this color too.
Thanks so much for all of your help HELL0KiTTY, B (ahh, I tend to agree and think the medium is prettier!), ri604, PurseCrazyGal (haha, true, but I have so many that I'm only adding the colors I lack, of which there aren't too many :sweatdrop... I agree, I do love the medium! ), ilovecocohanel (hi flap twin!), minnie (ohh, me too... I'll definitely get either flap with the gold h/w!), missydarla, Happyamelie, simplysplendid (I agree, hmm, and I have all of the basic Jumbo colors and then some... plus the '05 light beige aka cream functions as my one "light" Jumbo so maybe I don't need another? ), girlofpace, CECE, jayjay77 (I agree with your assessment, and that what I usually do, but I'm still thinking I might use the light beige with dressier clothing, so the Jumbo *could* be overwhelming! ), preciousp, kuromi, fufu (you're so cute... you make a very good point too) and Aurora (ahh, you make a good point too haha)!!
Lots of you prefer the Jumbo to the medium... crap, I'm still torn! The problem is, I keep picturing myself wearing it with dressier clothing (wrap dresses, skirts, etc.) and for outfits like that, I far and away prefer my medium flaps. I just don't want to get the medium and wish I'd gotten the Jumbo though, ahh. Then, I think if I need a beige flap for dressier occasions, I have my old beige, so I go back to thinking I should get the Jumbo! I had a lil dream yesterday where I was carrying the new Jumbo though, so maybe my subconscious is trying to tell me something (besides the fact that I'm silly enough to have Chanel dreams)! :-p
Minal, I'll always be a medium girl despite my recent new found love (Miss California RED jumbo). I really love the jumbo red and to my surprise it's only a tad bigger than the reissue 227, which I love. I just need to shorten the straps of the Miss California RED. Anyway, I'm not opposed to getting another jumbo, if it's not slouchy. Looking at your pictures, I do admit you look the best with medium. Like me, I look better with medium too. But, if you intend to use it as everyday bag (and I know you won't with all your 100s of flap bags ), then go for the jumbo. You look great regardless, but the medium is more proportional to your figure.
