Is a dark silver metallic reissue too bling for daytime?

Hi ladies,

I am smitten by a metallic reissue in a dark silver - is this too bling for daytime wear? My sister and I love it, but DH thinks it may be a little too loud (bless, what does he know?!)

Are metallics, as my husband believes, for evening wear only? Or is that assumption way out of date? What you you think?

:heart:

it is not that bling but it is less durable for daily usages.
The one I adore is a distressed metallic finish - should I be afraid? Is the distressed metallic fragile and better suited for simply admiring rather than carrying?

I just ordered my first metallic bag today, a bronze 226 reissue. I definitely plan on wearing it during the day, but not everyday. I also hope that with reasonable care the bag will look good for a long time.

LOVE the bronze metallic- great choice Brigitta. I think the daytime light will really be striking- like carrying around a sunset!

I have the 2007 Dark Silver Reissue 227, have worn it casual and dressy, works well both ways, and by the way, its as pristine as when I first bought it. My favorite Chanel Bag.

Got my 08A DS reissue 226 a month or so ago and been wearing her day and night! She's a real cameleon!

I picked up an 11A 226 light gold reissue not so long ago.

I have carried her mostly for the evening, but this is because of the smaller size and all my endless daily belongings just dont fit in a 226 size. If I had this metallic bag in 227 I wouldn't have any hesitations to wear her day or night. I LOVE the metallic reissues, they seem universal.
