Last month, I purchased three bags to beat the price increase - beige PTT with gold hw (which I love), medium/large black lambskin with silver hw and black GST with gold hardware. While I took the price tags off, I haven't let myself use the black bags because I'm torn over whehter I chose the wrong hardware. I now think I should have gotten the GST with silver and lambskin with gold. I purchased the GST from Saks and lambskin from BG in New York. Are these stores good with exchanges? I'm not even sure if either of these stores have the bags in the other hardware. Is there anyone on this purse forum who has a black lambskin with silver? All the posts I have read have lead me to believe that gold is better for lambskin and silver better for GST.
