Hmm, well, do you "need" a gorgeous neutral with a kick or a subdued (but still fab!) pop of color? If I could do lamb, I would probably get the turquoise Jumbo... such a great fall color and amazing with tan, cream, brown, black, yellow, etc! If you go the metallic grey route, I'd personally get the Jumbo, not the maxi. Good luck deciding! :flowers:

I take it that you are not a fan of the maxi. May I ask why?

Hi! :smile: Ohhh, no, I like the maxi. :smile: It's just that (for me) a metallic lamb maxi scares the hell out of me. See, I just don't do lambskin, and can't imagine where I (personally) would wear an oversized metallic lamb flap. It looks beautiful on others, but I'm particular about what I like/will use... so it's really just me. I do prefer the proportions of the Jumbo though, if it comes down to it.

I tried on a caviar maxi and did really like it, but given the choice between a maxi and Jumbo, I'd probably pick the latter most of the time. :smile: I do have a vintage XL (black lamb) maxi though... it's fabulous, but one is enough for me (can't say the same about medium and Jumbo flaps)! :P

Both are gorgeous! May I know what other colour of bags do you have? If I were you, I'd go for the one that can diversify my collection.

My vote is for the metallic dark grey lambskin maxi! No question about it. This is one of the most beautiful and complex colors that Chanel has come out with in a while IMO. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it in person at the trunk show.
