Did you notice that one of the dept stores shows Dove as an almost white bag on their website? This is what lead me to assume it was the palest of greys...but then, I saw the Dove Paraty posted here by a member and it is, as you say, rich fleshy beige...VERY pretty! I'll have to check at least 4 sites to see who's got it up looking mighty pale (white)?I think rose, beige, and skin are 3 different colors. Dove is beige, off white cream color. It's a rich beige, not an anemic beige if ya know what I mean. I have the skin and I'm in love with it. I set out for Saks one day intending to buy nut Marcie, but saw it in skin and it was love at first sight. It's a peach colored beige with pink undertones. I have seen the Rose on Website, I also do love that color too. It's more of a pure pink without peach.
I read on this forum before I purchased my bags that you really cannot go wrong with any Chloe neutral colored bag. That no one does neutrals like Chloe. I didn't really understand what that meant until I saw more of these bags in person. Simply put, there honestly is no wrong choice because each color is beautiful in its own way. If you get the black Marcie, get it because you adore it. Likewise don't talk yourself out of one of the lighter colors if that's truly what you want. Choosing a color is a tough decision- but it's a decision without any bad consequence--they're all beautiful!
