I am going to order a Buckley. Does anyone have the gray one? I am wondering what color to get. I like having the lighter color and darker strap etc. Thank you.:smile:

OK, now I am thinking about getting one in suede/Nubuck. Not sure if I should get Florentine or Suede. Love them both. I have Flo bags but not suede and love them. Thoughts? I love the nubuck.

Tlo posted pics of her grey and it's TDF! I believe it's in the mini reveal thread... two weeks back I think. QVC has videos up too

I would go for florentine ! I think suede is more for fall and winter and you'll have to baby it more ! Just my two cents . I am partial to that grey though !

The Nubuk is so beautiful and I feel like this style begs for it, but I kind of agree with VM. I have the Nubuk Chelsea and haven't carried her yet because I'm scared to. I'm afraid to ruin her. I know that's a personal problem. Lol. I will break her out for her debut in a couple weeks. :smile:
Really it's all personal preference so I'd say get the one that's screaming to you loudest.

Hey TB,

I don't know if you remember, but I purchased my Chelsea nubuk (in chestnut) because you posted a pic. It ended up being a great price at, I think 70% off. Thanks once again, for giving me the heads up.

Anyway, things turned chilly in my part of the country a couple of weeks ago, so I have been carrying my Chelsea ever since. Mine is holding up perfectly. I didn't coat mine or do anything. Not even babying my bag.

The nubuk does slouch a little more than the florentine, but this is the only change.

Consider carrying your bag. Super practical! Love how everything is secure, but right at my reach.

I would personally get Florentine because I don't like feel of suede. It makes my skin crawl. 😁😁😁. BUT, I can easily see Nubuk going well with a turtle neck sweater, jeans, boots and a short leather jacket.

Can you tell I'm ready for cooler weather?? 😃😃

:roflmfao: I totally get this! I will cringe even if I think about some fabrics, materials, or an action including the said fabric or materials...like touching it etc.

I would go with florentine gray. You can carry that baby all year long!

Thanks everyone. I decided to get the ivy. I just LOVE the way it looks with the dark brown leather, two tone look. I may get the gray also, but I have a gray bag I never use so I doubt it. This ivy is so pretty, not dark and I get SO tired of dark in winter. I try not to use much brown and black because of that. I love color. I can't wait to get it.

I read a lot about the Nubuck and how it is supposed to be stronger than suede. I think it was treated also.

I rarely get a big bag and prefer medium bags so I won't use it a lot and mostly for travel since I don't use any totes for handbags. This is a good way to have a bigger bag without being a tote.

I thought a long time and looked in my closet several times. I think this will be good. The other colors are nice but I like seeing the light and dark and not all one color in this bag. Guess I will see for sure when it arrives. I sure do love the shape and structure!

I did watch videos on QVC. Such a hard decision.

Since you already have a gray bag, then this was a better choice. Something different from what you already have. Ivy is a gorgeous color!

Lol... Lol... I'm glad someone else "gets it". I also don't like the feel of other fabrics either. Lol. I made the mistake of getting a micro fiber living set once and couldn't even sit on that dang thing. Lol. I quickly sold it!!!

You're welcome! I love enabling. :smile: I'm glad you're loving her and that she is holding up well. I will definitely be pulling her out soon. The weather is getting prematurely cold here, but I'm in denial so I'm still wearing sandals. When I get to shoes and boots I'll be taking her out for sure. I can't wait!
