Please tell me about the color. I have never seen it in person. Some pictures make it look like a true metallic silver while others make it look like a shiney beige or taupe color. Also, is the Paddington good for every day use? Besides being a little heavy are there any other negatives? I am a die hard Chanel fan and I am strongly considering a Paddington for my next bag instead of another Chanel. All opinions welcome! Thanks ladies.
