On the pro side (for me), this is a very elegant and luxurious-looking bag that I could see myself carrying for years. I don't think the picture does the cool taupe and silver hardware combo justice--I think it is stunning. I also like the shoulder bag/crossbody options, as well as the woven chain strap. I do think the $2950 retail price is too high, but I bought mine for about half that. I love the size (a bit bigger than the little baguette) and need a bag this size and in this color family for the spring and summer months. And before someone suggests it, I wouldn't rather have a Chanel flap--I just don't have any interest now--maybe some day. The only thing that worries me is that my summer shoes are mostly a lighter and warmer shade of camel/nude, including my beloved YSL Tributes. I also wear gold jewelry about half the time. My summer wardrobe is a lot of whites and blues. Do I sound crazy? I do love silver jewelry and my wardrobe is a lot of cool tones. Should I keep the bag? And of so, do I need new shoes?!?! Or do I need a warmer camel/nude bag instead of this beauty?!?! OMG! TIA!
