I need some advice. I am in the market for a large Carly to use as a school bag and I have some questions: 1. I'd guess that a signature one would be a little lighter than leather, no? Also the better choice just for weather purposes, right? 2. I was trying to track down a signature Carly with Chambray trim because I LOVE blue but I've heard of the fading issues plus my dh says that the darker colors (black, chocolate) are more striking. What is your favorite Carly color combo-khaki/chambray, khaki/saddle, khaki/black, khaki/beet, khaki/chocolate? 3. What color is the lining on a khaki signature Carly or does it change depending on the color combo? 4. Should I wait until PCE or just suck it up and buy it now? I'd like something that doesn't clash too much with my other handbags but I'm not sure that is even possible since they are different. I own-black Ali, mineral Chelsea hobo, tobacco Chelsea Abbey, and my current bag Legacy shoulder in Pond. Any and all opinions/suggestions are welcome. Thanks!!
