I like blue izmir too. I've seen a blue izmir lindy at the store and the bag looks heavenly.Thank you ladies for all the insight. I took the plunge and went with the izmir as I wanted a brighter shade for my 1st lindy and i so love teal for cross between blue and green under different light. Everyone says you nvr stop at one so for the next, I will go for a sapphire Kelly =)
And a special thanks to bababebi for the authentication service, giving me a 2nd peace of mind.
