Dominic got me a beautiful bag for our anniversary but I will have to exchange it with a similar one because the one he got, has an open top (which wouldn't really work for me). Here is the one I want to get instead. I love it, I think it's perfect, but I just can't decide which color to get: black (Dominic's favorite) or brown (Teddy's favorite) would go with everything, but I kind of like red (Benedict's and Thea's choice) or blue (although I think blue really would not work with many outfits).
I normally wear jeans or neutral color pants or carpi's or black and white skirts with a white, off-white, gray or black t-shirt and a black or off-white cardigan and black or wine colored (Dansko) shoes. Please vote on a color to make it easier for me. This is a bag that I will wear for many many years and it is not cheap so I need to make the right choice.
I'm looking forward to your opinions!

Personally I'd go with red, but it's your bag not mine. I also gravitate towards wearing a lot of denim, black, gray, etc., so while I used to be shy about color commitment I've never regretted things like my bright orange diaper bag or the sage green walls in our bedroom; it makes things much more interesting to have a definite color here and there. Especially if you tend to choose a lot of neutrals, one or two colorful choices can be really fun. Black does go with everything, but if everything you have is black things get a little dreary. Good luck!

I'd go with black - then it would go with mostly anything. I don't like not being able to use something I like because I dont like the way it looks with other things I like. Or spending time trying to figure out what to wear with what. Then again, its your bag and maybe all of a sudden red goes with anything. Audrey likes the black too.

I vote with Thea, Benedict, and Tirzah for the red one. Because you wear mostly neutrals, red would go well most of the time. I also think red leather wears/ages better over time.
Regardless of color, it's a very cute bag!!

Go for the red! It will look great with jeans and also with a nice black dress or skirt. A couple years ago Gregory gave me blue Hermes Birkin for our anniversary. It is the nicest purse ever. I love it. But I usually use my red purse, and take the Birkin when we go somewhere special. These purses are beautiful. Happy Anniversary.

Kelly, are you saying that Greg got you a Hermes Birkin replica? He didn't get you an authentic Hermes Birkin, did he? If he did, I hope you insured it!!!
Thank you all for your suggestions. I'm waiting for more and then maybe whithin the next week I will go to the store and get it. I'll let you all know what I finally chose.

You are so cute Irina! As soon as I saw the bags I thought the red one was best, but as you know, I am partial to red. I just think the bag looks best in red and it is a classic color that will always be stylish. I must say that I also like the brown one though because I think it would be warm and cozy for the Fall... I don't know if that counts as a vote!

Definitely the red! It's a beautiful color that will really pop against any neutrals or blacks you wear.
