Thinking about different colors for bottoms?

Euridice's patent bottom on her whiskey Ormala got me thinking about the possibilities of changing the bottom color on my raspberry Mini Ormala that I ordered. I need your opinions on this because I have some concerns!

First is that I seem to have made a Rebecca Minkoff knockoff with the colors in my head. I went with gold metallic on raspberry suede lining for my bag, and I thought it would be cute to do a gold bottom to match. When I looked at the pics of the lookbook, it seems that cracked gold is the only gold that is structured. I liked some of the other golds, but they were all very supple or soft. I realized though, that cracked gold is what RM does with some of her bags! I love the combo, but do you think that I might look ridiculous "copying" that style? Attached is a Luna Boston pic of an RM gold crackle bottom.

Second is that I got the raspberry leather, and I wasn't sure if I should take away from the beauty of this leather by going with such a "loud" bottom leather. Thoughts on this? I noticed that Euridice said that it's so subtle that she can't even really see it when looking at her Ormala from the side, but I wasn't sure about how it would translate on mine. I like the idea of having a fun color to go peek through every once in a while.

Thanks, everyone!

What a fun thing to do! I think it has potential for a spectacular bag!

A whole new train of thought has been sparked by this idea. . . hmmm. . .

There's a cracked silver & a cracked bronze that are structured, too. Oohh, cracked bronze on a bottom would be very cool also. . .

You have awesome ideas there, royalwink! :yes:
