I think I am going to buy myself a new bag for my birthday. I need one that is better suited to the stuff I carry around with me. I found the Carson bag and it seems to fit the bill! But I can’t decide what color I want.


Red is fun and has been a steady favorite color for approximately ever. Grey is practical and goes with everything. Yellow is cheery and a current favorite. Turquoise is so very me.

Help me choose!

    P.S. I really like grey! It’s my favorite neutral. I didn’t mean to imply that it’s only practical.

    That is a gorgeous bag. The yellow made me squeal. If your purpose in life is to make me suitably jealous, get the yellow.

    I mean, it’s not my SOLE purpose.

    Red. Red, red, red! (Although the grey is also very lovely.)

    I love the turquoise, but I do wear a lot of blue, so I’d probably go with the yellow, which I also love (for contrasting purposes). (And I also love the red and the grey, so I’m no help whatsoever.)

    While I love the yellow, it wouldn’t look yellow for very long. Trust me. I have a yellow couch.
    So I pick red.

    Kim, I share your concern about yellow. I actually have a small yellow purse and it is…grungy. But I am otherwise leaning toward the yellow one. DECISIONS ARE HARD.

    Well turquoise/aqua/teal/etc is my favorite color! I have a teal purse and I really love it. It’s never clashed with anything and it’s a bright spot when everyone else has black or brown!

    The grey will go with more outfits, so would probably be the ‘sensible’ choice, but I am strongly attracted to the turquoise. That said, they all look lovely!xx

    Turquoise. So vibrant yet peaceful and as you say, very you.

    Well, did you pick one?

    Well, I haven’t ordered yet. Turquoise got four and a half votes and red got four. So taking a vote was not very helpful. I am leaning toward red, and thinking of getting the slightly smaller Bailey bag later (with custom interior pockets–I already talked to the maker about it) in turquoise. Since I want this bag partly for our big trip east in the fall, red seems like it would be pretty awesome. But I still might change my mind.

    If it’s between red and turquoise, I vote red.
