Red or Turquoise

I am planning on buying one of these.

Was going to buy the turquoise as I have a few jumpers in a similar colour (Hush "radiance" kind of thing -similar to the bag). Was thinking it would go quite nicely with the jumpers/jeans (and better than the pink handbag I normally lug around)

And then I saw the red one...

Cannot should not afford both. So now in a dilemma of which to buy.

I wear grey, black, denim and for colour I chuck in some turquoise/bright pink - cerise/royal purple or (not so much) bright red. I have grey hair. Blue eyes. Pale skin.

Which would you get?

Help me make a decision

I personally prefer the red one smile

Red. Goes with most things

I think with the colours you say you wear and your hair/eye colour, I would go with turquoise but what do I know about style?

Love the red and think it would go with loads. I really don't like the turquoise snd think the colour cheapens the bag, sorry blush

Hmmm. Yes I have the fear that the turquiose could be a bit garish in real life. My eye keeps being drawn to the red one though...

Red, but I would want to see the bags in real life before buying - the website looks a bit shonky.

Yes that website is beyond rubbish. Also -$180 for something that doesn't look a lot better than bags I can pick up in Spanish markets for €50 makes me a bit suspect. It's a shame as they look lovely ( another vote for red here) and if the website had more photos I'd be tempted too.

Thank you S&B gurus. I think that a) the red is nicer and b) I am going to give it a miss. It is a lot of £££ for something I havenot seen and will not be able to return easily.

It could well be amazing (there was an Etsy store with fab reviews but no longer trading though that. The chap makes them part-time whilst also doing counselling - hence the amateur website) - but am not prepared to risk it. £50 I may have been. Not this.

Thank you - you pinned down why I was reluctant.
