I need honest opinions not enablers!! Nothing but the Cotton Club tote amazes me for spring and I have it on order in blue. I love the Vintage Ligne, love totes, and don't have a bag in this brown color. I'm thinking while the price is still $1995 to grab it, but I also had my heart set on a Modern Chain which is making a reappearance for fall, probably with a price increase. And the VL may reappear with a price increase too. My Nordstrom s/a said the company has sold out of all colors in the MC fall tote. I can either buy two bags now (this VL tote and the blue Cotton Club tote) or one bag now and another in the fall. I don't think my budget can handle three new bags this year but that could change. Right now I'm thinking in practical terms. What I'd like opinons on is whether or not this VL tote color is too winterish looking as I live in AZ where the sun is always shining. I'm not a bright colors kind of gal - the most daring is my beige/black Reporter and champagne colored Cloudy Bundle tote. But is this VL too fall-like in color?
