Hi there,
I am frequently on the Chanel forum and but love bbags and have had a few posts here. Currently I have a black and caramel hobo, bordeaux purse, and white and ink city. I'd like to add a splash of color to the collection for the spring and summer. I am thinking about a blue or purple but don't want a really hard to find color or something that routinely would go over retail. I was thinking of cornflower blue (or perhaps another blue) or the lilac. I love purple but am not crazy about pastels. I've never seen the lilac in person--would you categorize as a pastel or a richer color? pictures I have seen have really differed in shade. Also do you think that lilac would tend to fade or yellow? I definitely don't want a bag that is so light that I have to worry about that. Please give me your advice on color!
thanks so much!

Hi Rockerchic !!!
Welcome in Bal Forum to a Chanel Expert !!!

If you already have an Ink with Purple overtones, and if you're afraid of light colour (so most of 06 Lilac specimens are not for you)
then go for BLUE !!!!
I would say : Cornflower or Blue India if you like Carribean Sea ;)...
French Blue would be maybe too bright for you !!!
But I think Bleu Glacier in March will be TDF !!!!!!!!!!

That is so helpful...I had a feeling that the blue might be better for me. I will check out those colors as well as look forward to the bule glacier!

Check out my blue Twiggy

Its not too bold, not to dull... perfect

The colour is even better in person...

I'd go blue

I personally dont dig the Lilac... I dont know why

Its probably because I've just seen too many around in that colour so I guess I'm Lilac-ed out...
