First of all, I would like to give a BIG THANK YOU to kittenslingerie for the lead on this violet GSH work! Couldn't have found one without your help. This is my first foray into the work bag and with GH no less! I love this deep rich purple and how the silver HW sets it off. Leather is thick and smooshy and I can't wait to break it in even further! I've included another comparison photo to my 04 eggplant city. As the others with both eggplant and violet have said, the colors are extremely similar. Violet just seems a touch brighter and bluer IRL. And to break up the violet overload, my collection of b-bags! Clockwise from left: 07 vermillion day, 07 gsh violet work, 04 anis twiggy, 04 seafoam first, 07 plomb money wallet, 05 indigo first, 04 eggplant city, and 05 dolma day.
