First of all, I do have to say that Daphne did the best job of picking out one with great leather. However, the color is a lot brighter and more "orange" than I expected. I was expecting a burnished, browney yellow gold - but it is exactly like its namesake - its a bright marigold (its the exact yellow/orange hue of the flower). Its a really unusual, bright color that functions really well as a neutral. On its own, its almost scary bright for me - but when I try on outfits with the bag, it looks fabulous. I'll try and get some pics up later on today for you guys. Anyone else seen the jaune in real life? I'd love to hear your reactions upon first seeing the color.
