    Hello Ladies, I recently aquired a 2005 Caramel City from a lovely lady.
    It's in great condition, but not sure about the color for me?
    I realize it's a great "neutral" but not feeling the love?......

    I normally have bright colored bags, trying to tone down my wardrobe for the fall.

    Anyone out there own a Caramel that can convince me to keep her?

    The leather is TDF!

    (p.s. 2005 city seems smaller than older years? am I amagining this?)

    A reminder that selling/buying/trading is not permitted here.
     
  2. Well my lovely, I have a well loved caramel weekender which is one of my faves. It's classic, classy, can be dressed up or down and the leather is just scrummy. However you can't force it if you don't feel the love.
     
  3. Did somebody mention caramel? I'm a fan of caramel to the extreme. So of course I would say to keep it. It looks like it's in great condition. I have caramel from 02, 03 (dark), 03 (light), 05, 06 and a saddle cp 08.

    2005 is the lightest and I love it the most in the spring/summer but it is of course good all year. Maybe since you like brighter colors, you might prefer a darker caramel.


    Here is 05 caramel. I think it's a great color for blonds especially. It looks a little darker in this pic but there is a big skylight above.

    And here is a comparison between 05 caramel and 03 dark caramel. 03 dark caramel looks similar to 08 saddle.

  4. i think i really prefer the dark caramel to the lighter version 05, maybe because it's not dark and it's not light.....the in between is really difficult to determine what color it is?.....

    My daughter commented last night "that bag is sooo ugly" and usally she likes most of my bbags.
     
  5. I love the caramel color! You're lucky to get one. I hope Balenciaga will issue same color as this one of these days lol

    Thanks for your help
     
  7. I have an '05 Caramel Twiggy & love it. I agree that it is not flashy, BUT, as has been stated earlier, it truly goes with everything!
    You just can't go wrong with a great, neutral, go-to bag.
     
  8. I have a caramel flat brass first 02 that I really love. I like that the colour makes the leather looks vintage
    I also had a caramel weekender from 05 if I'm not mistaken, I was searching high and low for that beauty but unfortunately I sold it because i didn't use it as much and I try to downsize my bags as I feel I got back pain and shoulder problem

    I would keep it if I were you, but then I'm not you so it you don't love this bag as much then maybe you should sell it and get something else you love more

    Yes, I just don't love it like I need to, in order to keep it.
    Prefer dark rich colors or brights.



    I appreciate the feedback.
     
  10. If you don't feel like you love the bag, then you shouldn't keep it.

  12. I agree...don't keep what you don't LOVE! No one can convince you to love something you are not feeling
     
  13. 05 caramel!!???!!! I would give my right arm...and maybe even a left leg to get an 05 caramel city in great condition! Keep it or give it to me :P
     
  14. I´m with *S* ;)
    I would love, love, love to have caramel!
    But if it just is´nt you, don´t keep it. No use in keeping a bag you don´t use.

    Thanks girls I appreciate the advice but I've decided not to keep her. She's a beauty And may regret it but I'm not in love.
