I love that bag and have the blue on. I carried it for weeks this fall. I was initially torn between that and the carly. I finally chose the hobo for the size, but every once in awhile I dream of that carly.
I did not care for the khaki gold Ali either. I was going to buy it at Nordstrom Rack and decided not to. I also saw a woman at TJ Maxx with it, and it just looked terrible because a lot of the gold had worn off of it. IMO the gold is too heavy on it....I prefer a softer finish metallic, and when that rubs off it's not quite as offensive.
As for the patchworks, I never cared for the khaki version, but I have two of the indigos. YUP, I couldn't make up my mind between the large ergo and the carly version, so I bought both! I even use both. I love this patchwork, and it looks great with jeans!!
