Hey dears, I'm 157cm & 47kg, and think to get a mini lady dior.
I love a classic black colour one but I'm hesitating for the four choices:

1. Patent Leather with SHW
2. Patent Leather with GHW
3. Lambskin with SHW
4. Lambskin with GHW.

By the way, I have just got a Chanel Le Boy lambskin in blue colour
Dior lover, what's your opinion for the four above?
Thank you~

With patent, I prefer SHW because it's balances out the shine of the patent. Gold feels too much. With lambskin, it's a bit harder because both gold and silver hardware suit. Patent is also more durable, but I suppose since you have a Boy in lambskin, you're comfortable with the latter. I think you also have to consider whether you'd like the chain strap or the leather strap to go with your mini.

What colour hardware is your Boy and what shade of blue?

Personally, I hesitate over the gold even though I love the look. My sister likes it on me and it's such a classic but I haven't worn yellow gold since I was a child. I'm 90% there but I just can't pull the trigger. I think silver is just a more versatile. Casual to formal very easily. Plus you already have something with gold hardware. It might be nice to mix things up a bit. Are you able to try in-store? Perhaps one would suit you more than the other?

Gorgeous Boy, by the way. :love:

Edit: I just saw a black patent Lady Dior in medium GHW. It's really beautiful but it was at a CNY Chap Goh Mei/Office warming party, so slightly more formal occasion.

it depends on which leather you prefer more!
I like lambskin with both SHW and GHW, but the patent leather i like it with GHW.
in my opinion i think you should go for lambskin with SHW since you already have a bag with GHW :heart:.

I'm still wondering which leather is easier to take care? I'm not a person who pampers bag

wow, thanks for your opinion
Sorry I reread the thread and realized that I may have assumed you said that about the gold hardware, but it may have been someone else in a different thread. Sorry.

In this case, then I suggest getting it in the hardware colour that you have the most matching jewelry for. For instance, if you have a lot of gold jewelry, then get the GHW.
