Thanks to bag.lover's post, I rushed over to my local MJ store (in LA) today to check out the chain pouchettes. My heart was all set on the red or the black - but I walked away with the brown color! IMO it's so gorgeous IRL - the red was a gorgeous shade but, paired with the mixed chains and the gold studs, was just a bit too much for me. The black looked a little too "hard" against the hardware. I was surprised to fall in love with the brown since it didn't look great in the photos - in real life it's actually different from the photos - it's a deep, rich reddish brown. I think the brown is actually the color to go best with the hardware, since it matches really well with the copper chain and the gold studs and clasps. The brown shade really richens and mellows out the hardware. The sales associate told me that it was the favorite color among the sales associates, too, and he said that he thinks the brown will develop an even richer patina over time. I can see myself wearing this bag for a long time! Oh - my friend also bought the same bag, same color! I got the last one in stock. Also, I saw the Viv, which I think actually looks best in the red color (if anyone's thinking about the Viv style). Also, I took the little leather handle-thingy off the top, because I found it to be awkward. (please ignore little potbelly here ) Once again - THANK YOU BAG.LOVER!!
