And I thought Fuchsia was bright... Rose Shocking vs. Fuchsia

Happy post-Thanksgiving! The other day I purchased a pretty Azap vertical money holder (essentially a wallet) in Rose Shocking--and a shocking rose it is! It was my first time to see this color and it is gorgeous! I forgot to look at the price tag (and therefore the name of the color), but I assume that this wallet is indeed in Rose Shocking.

It makes my Fuchsia Kelly 28 look absolutely DEMURE. It was fun to place them side-by-side and examine the differences:

1. RS is brighter and "yellower" than Fuchsia! I'd say it's, um, sluttier than Fuchsia! :heart:
2. The RS zipper cloth is also brighter than the one in my Fuchsia Kelly
3. Stitching on RS is a bright pink while on Fuchsia it is a brownish-pink

Fuchsia actually looks subdued now that I've had my first experience with Rose Shocking! Here are pics! (The last pic isn't very good since the lighting changed on me, but you can see the subtle differences.)

Beautiful pocket Azap 24! Yup, that looks like Rose Shocking to me! Rose Shocking borders on fluorescent pink to me--absolutely great for smaller accessories!

Thanks, everyone! Kou, I immediately thought of you when I saw the little collection of Rose Shocking accessories. =)

GF, the Azap Long is wonderful, too! I've wanted a smaller wallet and this one is perfect for me. Love the zip-arounds.

Yeah, me too. i love Bearns, but , although I'm very girly, I don't think I am 'lady-like" enough to have a Bearn!! LOL!!

GREAT wallet, Lucy! I adore rose shocking! Ever since SpecialistParis tempted me with a Vision Agenda in etoupe/rose shocking, I've been hooked! A rose shocking Bearn followed (and I even picked up a tiny Longchamp coin purse in the exact same shade to go with - it's quite handy that Longchamp piggybacks on H colors).

Enjoy it! It's such a cheerful, uplifting color, it lifts my mood just to see it. :smile:

^LOL, Gina, it was your Vision Agenda that got me started on the whole rose shocking thing! My SA and I were discussing a SO Kelly in etoupe/rose shocking the other day - yum!
