First-- [I, in no way want to offend any older PFers rocking their Chanels. I mean this post in the utmost respect]. That being said....I was just wondering, "out of curiousity"....Re: The whole "Silver/Gold" issue.... I've read many threads and opinions on why "we PFers" choose silver vs. gold hw on our bags. A lot of the posters said in re: to silver-- It's young, chic, fashionable, trendy, more modern, casual, matches your jewelry, etc. Alot of the posts seemed to focus on silver being "young looking" Hmm?? And re: the gold-- It's classy, traditional, classic chanel, dressy, matches your jewelry. But also...some have said...for more mature/older women........ Hmm?? These 2 different views got me to thinking.....What about when I'm 50 and up?? I mean if you have silver hw bags.....What happens when "we" (I included) are older.....Will silver still work, being we'll be older/more mature?? KWIM?? Should we at that point stick with gold hw??? Or does it really matter? Also read quite a few saying the gold/silver depends on the style or color of the bag. I've read so many posts re: seeing older/mature women with gold hw, but rarely hear of older/more mature women wearing silver.... Or some saying...."Gold is for older women..." I know that young women (as well as women of all ages), wear gold hw....and older women (as well as women of all ages), wear silver because that's what they like. I was just wondering if anyone else had thought about this topic? Or had thought that far in advance. LOL!! Or is it just me.....? Yes, I like to think ahead of time.... (btw, I'm 36, and I have both 1 gold hw bag GST, and 1 silver hw bag Jumbo flap). I bought the GST in gold because I like that particular bag in gold (and am a gold loving person LOL), and the jumbo flap in silver....because I had the GST in gold already....thought I'd go with silver to have one of each HW. Also, gold hw in the flap wasn't calling me. LOL! Your Thoughts, Opinions, Views... TIA!!!!!!!
