I stumbled upon the chance to purchase a pre-loved Apple Green City. The leather is not broken in yet(low usage), the handles are not darkened(maybe it was cleaned up). The edges are slightly discoloured(lightened due to cleaning I presumed) due to wear. Throughout the bag, the colour did not fade very much or at all, maybe parts of it but it is not obvious unless you scrutunize. I took the mirror to compare. The bales look OK, the shoulder strap look the same. I had my EB City with me today so I could compare. Overall the bag is in very good condition. The tags look fine, *N* & the *degree* is close & it's an *A*. I also like the not too thin nor too thick leather. Now, I do love yellow greens or even apple green but I think APPLE GREEN is too stark & bright & lovelier as a piece than on me(or a part of my entire get up). I never imagined Apple Green to be this bright & cheery & GORGEOUS!!! While I was highly attracted to the colour, I am not sure I can carry an Apple Green. But I have heard lots about the 05 leather & thought to add this to my family but would I even use it to love it? 1. I would prefer not to spend on any more bags but then I have not been buying anything(not even toiletries) so I think I can justify another bag. Besides it is almost mid month so that means end of the month is just round the corner. 2. I have been sunning myself so I am relatively tanned skin. With the crazy sun & with me running outdoors 3 to 5X a week, I am definitely going up a few more shades. Would Apple Green also scream ATTENTION since it would stand out A LOT against tanned skin? So...should I???
