Gonna treat myself to a Polene bag for Christmas. Which one should I get? Burgundy? Black? Pink?

Part of me likes the 'safe' black color that goes with everything. I love the pink, but cringe at the thought of how easily it would show dirt/scratches.

The burgundy croc would be a good mix - color, but not show dirt/scratches easily. But a friend thought it was brown, and I don't want a brown purse...

I don't even carry black bags but I think I prefer the black. The burgundy is nice but I find burgundy bags to be very season specific...fall and winter whereas the black could be worn all year round. Don't care for the pink...the shade of pink is a bit weird looking to me.

Thanks @Cloudburst2000 Hadn't thought of the seasonal aspect, and that's a great point.

G-orgeous H-eaven
If it were me the Burgundy in croc print. Even though I'm not a fan of croc-print and would rather have either leather that looked like leather or real croc, I think the print suits the bag and the scale fits the bag and handle.

The black would be nice for a minimalist wardrobe or if you're always in colour or strong prints.

The style is reminiscent of 1940s/'1950s bags and the burgundy has a vintage vibe about it but you don't have to style it that way. The black translates as Modern which translates to today's contemporary wardrobe without you ever having to worry it look traditional (which is what brown often signifies to most people).
