But if im honest im actually having 2nd thoughts. I actually need to wear it out to see how i feel about it. I might just regret not buying the cognac. I will have to see what my final verdict is tomorrow when i finally carry it out.
I'm biased towards cognac but recognize that others love to have a pop of color in their wardrobe. This violet color could be a great neutral depending on what colors you wear and where you wear the bag to. Try it on with a few outfits in front of your mirror and see how you like it. If not send it back for a color that better suits your sensibilities and wardrobe.
