So I have a black MAM, an almond paramour, and have gotten obsessed with RM bags! I am wanting either a mini MAC or a zip cross body for my next bag. Problem is I am torn between too many colors. Was thinking teal or the new viola color (but heard the viola leather scratches very easily!) if I got the zip crossbody. In a MAC- denim, almond, or cobalt blue. (on stefanibags). I'm afraid the blue shades might be boring and blend in with my outfits when I wear jeans. Also saw a bright green on endless. I wish I could buy a couple but I can only do one. Getting a versatile color is very important to me. I've been researching the colors online but feel like its really hard to tell online. I know the real experts are here. Any feedback appreciated :)

What colors comprise most of your wardrobe?

I LOVE the denim color for MACS. It seems to be a gray-tinged blue. I think it's pretty enough to not blend into your outfits. I also love the teal - I would buy it if I knew how to work it into my wardrobe (mostly blacks and grays)!

Wow love the pics! The teal is beautiful. I like the denim a lot but on some websites the color looks really weird. Is the denim more a sping/summer color or more of a fall purse? Thanks for your help :)

I wear a lot of grays, blacks, purple, various shades of blue.

For a long time I carried the black zip cross body, and I just bought a teal / turquoise at the RM Sample Sale in NYC. It's not the zip, it's a MAC, but I love it. My nail polish go-to color for the season is a similar color, so it works out perfectly. Plus, it matches with blacks, blues, greys, whites... basically anything except reds! Mine is more of a turquoise, less teal than the one in the pics above and I love love love it. Would highly recommend. Gives a perfect pop of color to dress up an outfit!

To me, both colors seem more like they're spring/summer colors, but could realistically be worn in all seasons for a nice pop of color. With your wardrobe, both colors sound like they fit. Personally, although I really love the color of denim, I think the teal is a bit more versatile because of the silver hardware, and it's such a beautiful splash of color to any ensemble!

ahh I'm so torn! On my lunch break today I kept going back and forth between the aqua color and denim! I can't decide!! They are both so pretty. Thanks for your input.

Yeah the bright green is really unique but I keep going back to denim for some reason! I feel like that color is really hard to determine online.

Why must there be so many fab colors?!

Thanks for your opinion! Have you seen it IRL? Is it shiny or more of a matte leather? Does it seem like a pretty versatile color?

I think the denim is a better all year round color and it's really pretty. I would go for that one for sure.

Thank you! I have been staring at all the colors for way too long so it's nice to have some feedback! I am going to go ahead and get the denim.

I saw it on a girl in a mall:) To me it was more shiny than matte in a distance but I didn't have the courage to ask her if I could touch her bag. I think it is fairly versatile as you can dress it down or up.
