I guess drab is in the eye of the beholder. That bag is gorgeous and unique, and I love the color palette.I have the camo print in the Cafe Carryall. It is a very unique looking bag. I think it is beautiful in the Phoebe, too, but I went with the Carryall, since the Phoebe is only available in the small. I actually love the colors...they are warm and rich. I don't think they look drab at all, but we all have different tastes.
However she meant it...honestly, it doesn't bother me. As I said, we all have different tastes. This is definitely a bag that some will love and others not so much.I don't think she used the word "drab" as you all are taking it, as in dull/boring. I think she meant drab as in military drab.
