I've been looking at RM for awhile now and never jumped the boat. Clutch in Seattle has a few elephant bags- one is a MAB mini and the matinee. I've read some things that this color is not so great? The prices are good- $288 and $313, but it is final sale. I am really looking at black or gray, something basic. Do you think the elephant fits that bill? I don't want to buy something just for the price. Any hope in finding a black, gray or dark blue matinee under $350, aside from a sample sale? I like the MAB Mini, but I am a shoulder bag type of person and that worries me. I'm also a little worried at the size of the matinee and read it looks large in elephant. Any thoughts?
