Now that I have finally got the awaited Charlotte in Camel, the love/hype seems to have diminished. The bag is great, the leathers is buttery soft, perfect size that can be carried on shoulder. I am thinking I might have chosen the wrong colour, I shouldn't have gotten the dark brown instead. Darelgirl, Divina, please help. Or anyone? Should I keep it?:wacko:

Wow, where did you get it from? I've been on a waiting list forEVER. It's a pretty bag, and I really like that color, great for spring, and more neutral than a chocolate brown.

I got the GD in chocolate brown from BG in NYC. I would have much rather had it in camel... I ended up returning the chocolate brown--it was nice, but kinda "blah." Plus it sorta looked like Kenneth Cole bags that are out there in the same color, but for 1/2 the cost.

That camel is REALLY nice! Where'd you get yours--now I'm thinking I could really use that purse! Too bad I don't still have mine--we could have traded! lol.

My aunt got it for me from the Gerard Darel shop in Paris a few weeks ago and I just got it in the mail today (bummer got taxed at 30%). The colour under the sun and with flash appears to be camel and delicious, but then appears to be darker without the sun like a light brown (see the middle picture), I guess that’s what put me off (I am being really honest here, because one of you might want to buy it from me if I don’t want to keep it). Darelgirl, is yours like this too? I will be staring at it for the whole weekend to decide, I know I will! In the meantime, I won’t take it out in case I decide to let it go.

Shyloo, could you be an angel and post your dark brown with studs once you get it? I’d love to see it.

Bjara, yes camel, that’s how they call it when I called them in Paris.

Spiralsnowman, it’s shinny as nice nourished leather, not shinny like pleather. It doesn’t look overly shinny.
