I can't wait to see pics of this bag! I always wondered why they didn't do the all leather Carly in more colors - it was always in such neutral colors! Is the entire bag plum leather or is it trimmed in another color?

So I went to the local boutique and that thought I was talking about the signature/plum Carly and I said "no no no I heard a plum was coming out". So low and behold that brought out a medium leather plum Carly from the back! It is very cute, very classy. I would describe the plum as a darker color, sorta like the color of the Hamptons hobo that just came out- maybe a little richer plum then that.

ANYWAYS, I exchange out my sig frayed Carly :crybaby:for the LARGE Leather Plum Carly (they had to order it) and the order will come into the boutique in 3-5 business days. So I will def. post when I get it! Oh, it has BRASS hardware.

I looked at both the Zoe in Bordeaux and the Leather Plum Carly and I decided on the Plum Carly because I feel it would go with more. It was a tough decision but I went with it.

So I ended up owing $106 total since the exchange was $100 dollars more!

I'm sure I will get good use out of this one!!

Very excited!!
Are you referring to the Hamptons Hobo in berry but the Carly is darker/richer in color??

It is all plum with brass hardware. No specific trim (that I remember at least!) Yes I meant the Hamptons hobo in berry- it's slightly darker and richer in color. I think this is a great bag to go with both black and brown- unlike some other colors that may be harder to match with things!

Well its about time!!! Why they havent done a purple or pink leather Carly up until this point is beyond me!!! I cant wait to see it too - I can only do a Carly in the slim version (its bigger than the small, but smaller than the large!), but I really want to see the color. I like purple too - much more than pink, anyway!

No specific trim? It would have been cool if they had a contrasting trim like dark brown against the purple, but oh well. Can't wait to see it IRL - please post pics when you get it!

Gals, we got this bag in the store yesterday....it is TDF....it is entirely plum, just like a black leather one would be. It's gorgeous. It's the color that was on the Carly Slim Khaki Sig. Plum bag...but all that plum color. It is really pretty and I'm not a huge fan of all this purple/plum because I think Coach is really over-doing it, but the Carly has been done right!!
