Ah Dita, the voice of reason! That was what I thought - the midnight is antiqued leather isn't it & the red is goatskin. Don't think antiqued & I would get along, so think it's going to have to be the red. Just need one to pop up in the outlets now!The leather on the red is a hundred times nicer than on the midnight, imvho. The midnight is antiqued leather (ie a bit scratched) whereas the red is soft goat and gorgeous.
This is obviously just my opinion. I love the colour of the midnight mabel but I know that the leather would drive me mad. I probably wouldn't be quite so vocal if it was someone else that asked the question but I have a feeling that you might feel the same way, sj
Hold out for the red
I think all the JL ones are gone now I was going to get one but had a problem with my c/c - the number wouldn't go through, turned out the card was faulty.John Lewis, in Aberdeen or Nottingham had them last week for £450. It costs £7.75 for Special next day delivery...
I think I love my Midnight Mabel but really love the red one!!
If you want to give me a mo, I'll photo them together for you..
