My new greige twiggy

  1. After waiting and waiting for the blue india twiggy, I changed my mind as I was hoping it would be more of a grey blue, but all the pictures we've been seeing have shown it to be a brighter blue. So, I took a chance and ordered the greige twiggy. I was a bit apprehensive not having seen the colour in real life. I held my breath till the fedex man arrived, and when I opened the box I actually squealed with delight.

    The leather is thick and squishy (yet again Jumpei at Aloha Rag chose very well for me). The colour truly is 'cement'. A pale mushroom grey. And it's such a versatile colour -- it goes with neutrals such as olives greens, but it also looks terrific with bolder and brighter colours, such as dark purple and indigo blue. I'm so pleased!

    I couldn't capture the colour well in my photos (sorry!). Here she is: little Miss Tiggs, and with her two b-bag sisters (black city and rouge vif first)...

  2. beautiful!!!!
    Isn't greige a fabulous color. I love it. It's neutral yet unusual enough that it makes people stop you to comment. It's one of my favorites. Congrats on a real beauty. Jumpei does a good job picking out nice ones. So nice that I talked my Mom out of her white city that she just got from him. :lol: The leather on your bag is fabulous, it looks thicker than my greige and looks like the leather on my new white one.
    I agree the color is very hard to capture. I took so many pics and they all look different.
    I think i can see a distinct difference in the thickness of the leather on the greige in your pics. Does your greige actually feel a little heavier than the others? My new white one does.
  3. Thanks powderpuff!

    Wow, your mum is lovely to let you have her white city. I saw your thread --your bag looks spectacular.

    The leather on my bag is superthick, especially in comparison to my black city: I did the pinch test and the greige leather feels twice as thick as that on my black city. And I think you're right, the greige bag is even a tiny bit heavier than my city. I'm so happy with it:yahoo: .

    Enjoy your new white city!
