Ok, so I think deep down subconsciously I am griping over the fact that I sold off my grey alyona, even though at the time I knew fully well that I would have felt guilty owning two grey bags, similarish in style, even if I did get them both on sale. But I really, really like the alyona's shape and I don't think I would say no to ever owning it in a different colour to grey. But alas it is so elusive and hard to come by and the only colours I have ever seen IRL are the grey and black. I much preferred the grey over the black at the time. But I have seen one or two on ebay in cognac, teal and ivory. Now, even though the berry and teal alyona look gorgeous I don't think I could fit it into my wardrobe, which leaves me with cognac or ivory. I did spot a cognac one not long ago on ebay but the seller never responded in time to my request for additional pics etc. before the auction ended, and she has still not relisted the item, even though I have e-mailed her 3 times, but no response. And now I've stumbled across one in ivory, but I've not seen either colours IRL and have no idea whether it's worth waiting out for a cognac alyona or indulging in the ivory?!! What do you guys think? Have you seen either IRL? I don't usually go for light coloured bags, and only own one in off white, a RAFE bag, which I have still not carried. I do have a Balenciaga GGH PT in Truffle brown, again which I have yet to carry, and a Fendi Zucca Spy in brown. I guess brown is more of a new black to me since I have more brown bags than black.
