I know those two are totally different bags but I must only choose one between a Sorbet GSH Day or a Ruby GGH Work.

I loved the Sorbet GSH combo the first time I saw it in the store. I had no doubts that it was the right pink for me.

The Ruby GGH combo is also stunning but so far, I've only seen it through photos. And what I saw, I loved :love: . I have fears though that I may not love it irl. You know how Bal colors take on a different shade when photographed. Do the photos here depict the true color of ruby? Another concern is that the combo might look "too much" in a work; too bright/bordering over the top. I like statement pieces though :biggrin:

Appreciate all your help lovelies!

The Work is really like a briefcase, a more serious 'grown up' bag- as such, I'm not sure that Ruby GGH is the best combo for that style.

The Day is a fun and casual bag - because of its unstructured shape, it needs a bright color so it doesn't look just sloppy. I think it suits Sorbet perfectly; it's such an 'out there' color, any Sorbet bag is a statement piece, and in the Day GSH doesn't look like you're trying too hard.

I think there are photos of a Sorbet GSH Day somewhere on another thread.

Sorbet w/ GSH!! Ruby w/ GGH seem more luxurious but it is also very "BANG", it will def. pop with every outfit but I think Sorbet is more an everyday bag.

I love my Vermillon City but I only wear it when I want to be funky w/ my outfit as the color is really "out there"

MissFluffyCat, thanks for the very sound advice! When I purchase a work, I'd probably go with a color that's neutral :smile:

CHLOEGLAMOUR, I was hoping you'd reply as I know you've been an owner of the Ruby GGH City. It was a really gorgeous bag. But in a work, as you've said, it might be too bling :smile:

happychica87, is your vermillon from 07 or 08? I'm also considering an 08 Vermillon City GGH. How do you think this combo would look? :confused1:

tillie46, it is pretty! :heart:

Sorbet Day SGH! Sorbet is to die for, will be spectacular with SGH and I think GH looks best on the Day.

Even though you didn't ask - I have a vermillion work and adore it w/reg hw.

Mine is 08. It's hard for me to say because I really lean toward rh. Have you checked out the clubhouse? Maybe you can find some photos w/the ggh. Have fun with your decision! Can't wait to see your Sorbet!

Sorbet GSH Day. I think the pretty pink with the icy silvery hardware in a Day bag would be much more usable than Ruby with GGH in a work. I would say if the Ruby was a Day bag, it would be a really hard choice. I agree, Giant hardware looks and wears great in a day.

I would choose Ruby BUT I prefer RH for this color. So I would actually say Sorbet - it will look stunning with GSH.
