I love love love the silver hardware. I am okay with antiqued gold or brass, but I have an aversion to shiny gold for some reason. I'm sad because it means I will probably never own a black zip clutch with silver hardware. On the upside, I guess that means I'll save a lot of money (unless I continue to find older styles with the silver). Anyone else feel this way or do you like the gold? Or perhaps it doesn't sway your opinion one way or the other?
