Hermes blue jean and turquoise are two totally different colors IMO I have both and I can dig up the energy tomorrow, I will post a picture of them. I like a pop of color too and agree that investing a ton of money in a bag in a very bright color might not be the wisest thing to do. I got around this problem a few years ago. I really wanted a yellowish bag and the one that came to mind at the time and that I had missed out on when it was current, was a yellow color that Vuitton used in epi leather and specifically, the St Jacques style bag. i found one in perfect condition at resale for a great price. I still have it and plan to use it again shortly. It looks great against a dark color like black or navy, two colors that I wear a lot.
