Has this blog ever changed your opinion of a bag, a color, a leather? Led you either to like something or dislike something, buy or request something or take it off your shopping list? Conversely, have you found yourself resistant to certain consensus views on the forum? Do tell! Inquiring minds want to know. I'll go first: The forum has positively influenced me toward the color etoupe. The forum has not negatively influenced me toward anything I was fond of before. The forum has had no influence on my disinclination for exotics or bright colors.
