Hi all thanks for your replies. First of all I am fairly new here; what is an OP :smile:
Its not the bag pictured above its a darker gold. I tried to copy and paste pic but didnt work, any suggestions how to?
I am trying to find a bag under $2000 and would love a med classic or ew but too high for me right now. I'll try to get the picture but it's called the 07A light gold le marais

Love the Le Marais flap, the color is actually known as Black/Gold. Very roomy and unstructured, kinda edgy and special. But make sure you are aware of the bag's condition.
I have seen really bad ones in the consignment shop with lotsa discoloration/rub-off of the gold, especially on certain parts of the bag. The sales person tried to explain that that's the effect of the distressed look. But I had seen brand new ones before and they were beautiful with the color more evenly distributed.

Yes I was concerned about the condition of the bag. I will insert the link below can you plse take a peek and tell me what you think? also I have a link to a silver camera reissue above.
I dont know whether to go classic (navy with bijoux chain, beige classic flap), or the silver/gold. it's so hard without seeing them. basically I need a dinner bag and don't want too wintery, and wondered also if the navy is too close to black i own. http://luxury.malleries.com/auth-ch...r-flap-bag-i-25919-s-259.html?images=true#img

I would be careful with any metallic bag. As another poster said, I also agree- the metallic rubs off very easily. I like the beige flap. You can dress it up or down. Beige is really popular for this year, even for clothing so you can't go wrong. Plus, it's still classic.:smile:
