I guess if the choice is between patent and metallic I would go usually with the latter - the metallic is very versatile and striking! Not to say that patent isn't as nice, it's beautiful too, but patent seems to need more babying, IMO.

Oops, now I see why you're having such a hard time!

Hi B! Although both bags are gorgeous, I'm going to have to vote for the metallic brown. I saw this the other day and can't even begin to describe how beautiful this bag is. If I had to choose a name for it, I'd call it metallic bronze. It has brown, bronze, and copper undertones and it VERY similar to the khaki cabas color, only prettier. Think 07 dark silver with bronze, copper, and brown undertones added to it. :heart:

Having seen Larkie's brown patent and know how gorgeous that is, I was all prepared to choose that (btw, that crinkley goatskin patent is NOT high maintainance at all!), but from descriptions, the metallic brown sounds TDF, but I think you need to add a 3rd option: 3. Buy BOTH! lol

Oh.....both are soooooo different!!! You HAVE TO buy BOTH!!!! LOL!!!!

OK...back to real life....with your collection now and if you really have to choose, I will go for the patent brown just because you don't have any patent bags in your collection yet. And it doesn't need any "babying" at all!! Also, you won't have to be worried about metallic color fading off or sth.....

But a little voice inside me is still saying that you should get both.....it's not too much to have 2 brown bags....and the colors are different!!

I know I'm not helping here.....:P

Good luck!!
