I have both and honestly there is very little difference for me in terms of overall "look" or "wearability". The color (neutral vs color) and leather (box or epsom vs croc) will determine how much you use it, in my view.
I think between your 2 options, the Navy w/ silver g sounds a little more fresh and modern (vs the black which is more classic lovely.)
Both are nice, but the 23 with guilloche hardware seems little more special to me. I don't have either, but have read that the elan has a longer strap, so it's easier to wear cross-body. This may be a deciding factor if you're planning to wear it that way
the 23 when worn crossbody will hit you right above the hip, whereas the elan has a longer strap and will hang lower and look better imo. i love the 23 and have two, but do not have an elan bc i think it doesn't fit as much as my 23 in terms of space and what i want to put in there. good luck deciding!
It's a tough dec. Although i just acquired a 23 C, i do love the Elan too. But if you hv budget constraint, i would rather get a 23. It's more classic and stands through time. Elan is more casual ans chic. It's a matter of your preference.
Hi Everyone! I need your help in deciding between these two bags. I do not have a Constance bag and I'm trying to decide which one would be good as my first. I feel that both of these are classics and this is what I'm looking for. Please help!
I think that black would be more versatile though than navy!
