My 1 week+ old first bag was in my favourite colour PINK(BG 08 in my signature). It is such a sweet colour but hard to maintain so I chose a next colour that could be abused without showing much wear(I hope). I did not want black or brown as I want to leave that to later after I am done with colours. I like greens but more on others(especially shades like Vert Gazon, Vert Foret) than myself for some strange reason. However I do love green with flashes of yellow. Vert Thym is a nice army green IMO without too much yellow but the picture I took with flash under fluorescent light shows lots of yellow undertones. Anyway I think Vert Thym is a rather neutral or more a chameleon green, sometimes cool & sometimes veering on warm but not too much. The journey to get one was such a pain coz I have seen too many uneven veining. I do like veins but not if it's uneven with small veins running down the centre & huge ones at the sides. The poor people behind Aloha Rag was tortured half to delirium with my endless barrage of questions. Since I had no pictures of actual bag to view, questions was the only way & I took a risk. They chose a wonderful piece for me. This leather is ohsothick & not like my soft smooshy BG. I cannot wait to break in my new baby!!!
