  1. I finally sold and shipped my Sorbet...I haven't really missed it but now I am thinking I should get Peony in lieu of the lost Sorbet! I have Nuage 11 on my wishlist, and some sort of future taupe City too. I already have a lilac city with rh and anthracite with GSH. Is peony a must-have? Is it a beautiful pink that would replace sorbet well...or would you wait for a future pink?
     
  2. hi pursesnpeaches,

    I think peony and sorbet are very similar?
    how about the 2011 grenadine? that looks like a really delicious deep pink :smile:
     
  3. Oh no... you sold your Sorbet, I love SOrbet! If i didn't have a pink bbag ( Amethyst) already, I'd definitely get a Sorbet. It's such a beautiful pink, though Peony is so similar, but still love Sorbet.
     
  4. I also think Peony is very similar to Sorbet, less pop a bit richer/darker. I like peony more than Sorbet but if you just sold your Sorbet than maybe you should wait for a different shade of pink.
     
  5. hmm... pivoine just doesnt do for me... i prefer sorbet more than pivoine...
    maybe wait for a new shade of pink ?
     
  6. I am hoping grenadine will be a hit - it's on my list =)
     
  7. Between the two, I like Sorbet better. Peony looks "old" to me.
     
  8. I prefer the Sorbet as well, as the Pivoine looks "already-worn-a-lot" to me, too.

    Grenadine appears to be a much deeper shade - more like a pinky red, or a pale Pourpre, from what I can see on the swatches on this Forum.

    Regardless of what I've said, I think you should get the Pivoine - or any bag in any colour, really, only if YOU adore it, and not otherwise.
     
  9. I don't know about the newer pinks but I had 04 Rose for a short time and when I looked in the mirror, I thought it made my complexion glow when I wore it but then when I would see it lying around on the chair or looked down on it while I was wearing it..it didn't do much for me. So just as an object to behold...it wasn't great for me.
    Then, I got a 2005 Bubblegum Pink which I couldn't imagine liking before I got it because I am not girlie. However every single time I look at it, I smile. I just love it as an object and as something to wear. That feeling about it endures.
    That is how I make a decision whether to keep a bag or not.
     
  10. ^^, yes I agree with maxx, love the bag you carry.

    By the way I love you with your Bubblegum Work, maxx: it suits you (and the Rouge Work is pretty stunning too).
     
  11. Just bought a sorbet day on ebay. did u sell it to me? 799?
     
  12. Pivoine doesn't do it for me too, I prefer Sorbet but since you sold it away maybe you should wait for a new pink.
     

  13. awwh thanks hon
    who knew bubblegum pink would work so well...I think part of it is that it is older and has faded just a bit...not as bright so better for me

    And the RT was an auction risk.... just so lucky it was never treated so has a richness and softness to it..hard to tell from the auction pictures what I was going to get. Top 3 favorite bags now.
     
  14. I just got email from SA.
