I think I've finally convinced my SIL to take the plunge to the brown side. It's fun for me cause I can't buy anything new right now (ugh I HATE fighting with insurance companies to receive money owed!!) so I'm shopping vicariously through her. Neither of us have seen the Mirage in person but I think it's the bag she's leaning towards. (it will be through a charge send so ordering site unseen) My first instinct was to lean her towards the Noir - black is a staple. She wears lots of denims and blacks, dark colors. She saw one picture though where she didn't really care for the fade on the Noir and thinks the Bordeaux has a more natural "blend" (for lack of a better word). I know the Noir would match her wardrobe however on the other hand it would be more matchy matchy where as the bordeaux would have a bit more vavoom. So for those that own them of have seen both IRL given the black/denims of her closet would the Bordeaux coordinate nicely or is it too red? (I think that's the color she's leaning more towards now after I showed her pics in the clubhouse). Anyone with a bordeaux would you wear it with black? Thanks Everyone!!
