Ahhhh!! B-bags are NOT for the indecisive. I put a Rouge VIF city on layaway last winter and then in the meantime, I decided I loved tomato. I bought a tomato first, which I love. The leather is matte (not shiney) but distressed. So in the meantime, I hear the leather on the tomato cities is gorgeous and I have doubts about the rouge vif city because it is 2006. So I buy the tomato city. I haven't used it yet because I wanted to see the rouge VIF city next to it before deciding which one to keep. I thought it would be easy. I was leaning towards the tomato city because I LOVE the leather on it. Now I picked up the rouge vif and it is not an easy choice. The color is not as different as I would have thought. The tomato is only slightly oranger. The rouge vif is completely matte and NO distressing. Very unique and pretty but since it is a city, I would tend to use it more often and I am afraid every scratch would show but I think the matte finish in a red bag is stunning. The leather on the tomato city is stunning too. Very shiney and very distressed but not veiny. Thick, too. I could easily take back the tomato city but the rouge vif is not returnable. Although that is not the deciding factor, it is something to consider. HELP!!
