wHY DOES IT SEEMS THAT MOST PEOPLE PREFER THE DARK SILVER OVER THE GOLD?
The dark silver seems less "blingy" to me. Something I could wear during the day AND night.
dark silver is a better neutral and can be worn w/ most anything.
i'm more of a silver than gold person to begin with so i naturally lean toward the silver.
having said that, i am completely in with the "white metallic" which is a light gold.
For most people, it seems they tend to go with the color that they tend to wear in jewelry. I wear silver, so I bought the dark silver. I do have a friend who wears gold and she went for the gold reissue. I don't know if it holds true for everyone. I do think the dark silver is definitely more versatile than the gold, but that is just because I am thinking about my own wardrobe.
I think the dark silver seems less "dressy" so that I can wear it dressed up or down. I'm going to wear mine with jeans and with dresses both. I also tend to wear white jewelry. I love love love mine. I do think it's just personal preference though.
its more elegant... and has more understatment.... its evening wear.. but still very very classy ... the gold is "look at me- i am here"
It also seems less in your face.
I think its a softer look.
The 2008 gold reissue is so much nicer than last year's . The dark silver for lacks attitude .... but never the less it's still a great bag.
I like both colors, personally. But if I had to choose, I'd prefer the dark silver because as the others have said, it's more versatile.
It's easier to dress up or down, and IMO it's a tad easier to match vs. the gold, since it's not a true tin-foil-ish silver, and more muted.
Either way, they're both great colors. -but I'm just into glitzy flashhh
