I received my carmine campana and it is a lovely bag. But of course one always has second thoughts when spending $$ on a bag (or is it just me?:s). Here are Blugenie's photos until I can take pics (hope she doesn't mind!) http://forum.purseblog.com/bottega-veneta/carmino-campana-193582-3.html So I need your much valued and trusted opinions, what bag would you pick? As some of you may know, my first and only BV bag is the ebano (dark brown) large veneta. I also have a Chanel black medium/large caviar classic flap and a Chanel orangey red jumbo lambskin vintage flap (that may be going back depending on Amex dispute). I was originally thinking about the nero campana but I don't find myself reaching for black bags much and I'm afraid I'll regret passing on carmine. BV does make a gorgeous black. Of course, with so many gorgeous red BV bags, I can't pick between small veneta, new ball, montaigne and campana. My other dilemma is between the fall 2007 carmine red (darker true red with slight blue undertones) or resort 2008 cassis red (lighter, brighter red with pinkish hue - slightly strawberry/raspberrish).

What say you BV experts?
