Opinions needed - which bag fits better into my collection?

So I saw this at Neiman Marcus the other day and am completely in love. Not normally a huge fan of the Dolce & Gabbana Sicily design but the east-west orientation and the pushed out side gussets really update the look in a good way, IMO.

My question is which color? On the D&G website they also have this ‘Marsupio’ color which looks like a lovely beige.

Curious as to folks’ thoughts on which you’d choose, given the bags I have - let me get those added here.

In terms of black bags, I few a little silly getting it because I have the Celine micro tote in black and obviously there’s style similarities with the gussets/flared sides.

That said, I only have these two black bags and neither is a shoulder bag actually, so this could be useful in that way.

I have a lot more in terms of light brown and taupe bags but nothing in fact *beige*.

For awhile I was planning on eventually getting a perfect beige clair Chanel flap, but over time have found that the classic flaps aren’t really ‘me’.

So with that - which would you chose? Does one or the other make more sense in my collection? Thanks for your thoughts!

Get both?! :biggrin:

Both are lovely, the Marsupio is perhaps more high maintenance? What are you using the bag for? Occasional use or more often?

Considering the shoulder strap and that you have more lighter colour bags, choose the black D&G? I like both, but I'd choose the black Sicily despite having a few black bags but no beige/taupe bags. It's just more my style and taste.

Haha I’d love to get both but $$$. Also I don’t currently have two of the exact same bag in different colors and I’m sort of hoping to avoid that.

Here’s a mod shot with the black one.

I much prefer the black and this might be a weird way to decide, but I think maybe that particular beige doesn't suit your complexion as well as some of your other beige/taupes? The black looks fantastic, though.

That’s a good point... I am one pale mofo for sure. I have always stayed away from beiges with yellow undertones, as my skin is definitely more pink. I did think this beige looked straight beige but obv hard to tell from a picture. Wondering if I should order it to compare directly against the black one but I don’t know how D&G is about returns.

Update on this - I thought I had found a solution via a different beige bag, which is the Vague by Elleme.

The leather on this bag is quite soft and nice, and I can add a longer strap of my own for a drop.

However, when I try it on with outfits I envisioned for a beige bag, I’m not sure it’s really standing out.

I almost think this Chloe looks better and it’s not even beige.

I *did* buy the D&G in black to look at with more of my wardrobe. And even though I thought beige for the outfit, I like the style of the D&G much more. But ugh I CANNOT get the bag in both colors.

Any suggestions out there for a good beige bag that is less than say $1500?

Just wanna say, love the black Dolce on you - that is a beautiful and elegant bag!
Unfortunately I don't have a good suggestion for a beige bag... How much is the Dolce in beige?
