Would you pick Zoe over Ali?

I'm so drawn to Ali but then when I get her I end up getting rid of her lol. I LOVE the legacy leather and she's a great looking bag but I seem to get bored of her and I'm not sure why. I don't know if maybe she's too heavy or too high maintenance or what but I now have my 3rd one and I'm already considering getting a Zoe instead.

I need a great leather go to bag. One that goes with everything. I'm normally not a siggy girl but I like the brown and black sig (with silver) in this bag (but I already have the gunmetal satchel and I just don't wear enough black to do another black bag).

Am I crazy to want to sell Ali for Zoe?

If I did get Zoe would you suggest patent or regular leather?? Why? I've never had a true patent leather bag, but after seeing Taralindsey's post I'm lust after a chestnut patent zoe.

Have I lost my mind LOL?

I am an Ali fan and would love to own one, but I just bought a Zoe! So that says something for them! I say go for it, especially since you don't love Ali enough that you have sold her three times!

I guess since I have 2 Zoe bags and no Ali bags, that tells you where my heart lies. I prefer the Legacy Shoulder Flap style because the leather flap reaches all the way to the bottom. I can't get into that Ali style. I also love the smaller Legacy shoulder bag too over the Ali.

Maybe dress up your Ali with a colourful ponytail scarf and see if that helps it to glow. I notice that these ponytail scarves really bring life to the dull monochromatic all leather bag. That's probably why I loved siggy bags at first. Since discovering the different ponytail scarves available, I am starting to fall in love with my Coach all-leather bags over again. Maybe that's what you need to bring the spark back into the Ali.

I wish you well in your decision. Personally, I just love the way the Zoe (especially the XL) slouches and it sits so well on the shoulder.

I like both Ali and Zoe, but prefer flap bags over zippers. Probably why I have 3 Ali's and no Zoe's!

I'm no help...I like them both and couldn't choose between them! Which of the 2 Ali style are you thinking about getting? There is the one with the full flap which covers the whole front, and one that is like a half flap, if you know what I mean.

I'm a total legacy girl, but for me, I also am not too drawn in by the Ali. I think the Chocolate leather Zoe's are GorGeouS!! and the leather is sooo soo soft!

I think I am going to get the Zoe. I love, love, love Ali but for some reason I just end up wanting other bags lol. I guess she's a bit heavy for me? I'm not sure what it is.

The only downside to Zoe is she's a little boring (maybe that's why I love ali? Legacy lining, turnlocks, etc). Maybe a scarf would help?

I LOVE the chestnut zoe, but I've never had a patent leather bag...I'm worried about fingerprints or peeling. My DH doesn't like patent at all lol, but what does he know ;)

Would you mind posting a picture of the inside and the creed? I found one on the bay and she emailed me pictures of the creed but it's blurry :sad:
