After being in the boutique recently and actually seeing this color next to my face and reading how some here feel that for a brunette it is a better neutral than Gold - I am considering a bag in this color. I conferred with SA which claims that it isn't one to get "transfer" from dark denim. My hair is very dark brown and my skin is very fair (read washed out pale). Dark eyes. I'd love to hear what experiences you all have had with Etoupe. Is it a dirt magnet? I am considering an Evelyne in this color and the canvas strap in particular has me a bit cautious. Anyone with Etoupe canvas bags or toile with problems? Does the white stitching tend to get dingy? Thank you for any advice you may have to give, towards encouraging me or discouraging me. I am thinking of this bag for an upcoming vacation where hiking and kiddie activities will be paramount in our schedules. I'll be one mom of 3 with 2 kids each so hands free is an absolute need. I can't bear to undergo the stress of 6 kids under the age of 4 without some kind of Hermes bag within reach of obsessive rubbing! By the way, I always thought of Etoupe as the color of mud and own only black bags so this is quite a departure for me.
