Lets pretend:

You can get ONE ostrich birkin in either fuschia or vert anis, which would you choose? Can either color be worn year round?

great question FDL! I would go with the vert anis, it really goes with everything: black, brown, navy, white, turquoise...

i would get vert anis over fuschia, i agree it's more a neutral color color! i believe you could use both year round but vert anis is more for all seasons, i believe...

I would vote vert anis too (although I :heart: fuschia)....vert anis can bright and WOW when you need it to be, or more subdued (say paired with browns) when you don't therefore I think it would age with you better.

This is really tough. Both are such great colors in ostrich. For me and my wardrobe, fuchsia works better, but in general I would agree that vert anis is probably more versatile.
What about bleu roi?

I am a huge vert anis fan so I say vert anis! Not just because I looooove the color but since you phrased your question asking which color you'd get more use out of. I really can't think of a color you couldn't wear it with.

I used to think that vert anis wasn't an everyday color. Ok, so I don't own one...but I do own a JPG Chartruse...which I am using this summer as my everyday bag. It is amazing. The color looks good with everything. So, my vote would be green!

Thanks ladies . . . my first thought was the vert anis would be a better fit for me, so i just needed some outside opinions

Vert anis, definitely, for more wear. I have to admit the fuchsia would tempt me mightily, though!

Fuschia ostrich is in higher demand than vert anis ostrich all over the world. And both colours are gorgeous. I think Paris has recently released some vert anis ostrich in small leather accessories and bags. Fuschia .... this has got to wait a bit.

This is a tough choice. Both are lovely. :drool:

I love both colors and have both of them in birkin chevre/mysore... Though I am finding more use out of my fuschia right now - hmmm....

I have seen both colors in ostrich IRL and my only concern is that vert anis in ostrich is much lighter in shade than in other leather and since I have little monsters who love to touch and put stuff in my bags, it is, at this point, not a practical option for me...perhaps when they are bigger....;)
