    Default Nautical Blue MAM + Comparison pics of Royal Blue MAM

    I hauled ass to the Post Office this morning, no joke. There waiting for me was a Nautical MAM and a Cranberry MAM. I had missed the delivery the night before and I was so excited to get there this morning.

    And.....


    They are BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

    It's a little hard to articulate how different these new RM bags feel from previous ones but (at least for me) the feeling is very much there. I have always felt that the MAM had a slight boho-carefree feel to it, with the tassels and usually distressed leather. Even when the new hardware MAMs came out, I still very much felt they still retained a boho-esque look to them. However, now, after touching and feeling these bags, I'm kind of blown away by how different they feel and look. There is nothing completely obvious that constitutes this change; rather its a combination of small changes that come together to make a bigger picture, if you will. For example, the gleaming, polished mixed hardware with the (removable) shorter tassels, combined with vibrantly colored leather that is not distressed nor super slouchy, all culminates into a MAM that to me, feels stunningly chic and polished. I feel like this bag can literally go anywhere to the dressier occasions, to the most casual and everything in between. Nearly everytime RM comes out with a newer MAM, I feel they improve each time but now, I am just wowed. These bags are nothing less than a 10/10.


    Ok, enough of the babble! So which do you guys like more; Vibrant Royal Blue with long tassels on the left or elegant Nautical (Navy) Blue with short tassels on the right? Keep in mind that the Royal has distressed leather and the Nautical has very uniform leather. The Royal has brass hardware and the Nautical has polished gold tone hardware.





    Here are pics of the Nautical Blue

    I prefer the Royal Blue as the color jumps out more to me...Isn't this a lovely dilemma to be stuck with?

    Honestly I can not tell the difference between the colors at all. But I like the distressed leather better!

    They both look so much alike that it's hard for me to tell the difference in the color LOL! However, I think I like the royal blue best!!

    They are worlds apart in terms of texture but similar in color. I have a Navy color item coming in a few days and will post comparison pics!

    When I got a special order Navy Nikki a month ago or so...I started thinking that the Navy was NOT the original Navy. All the pictures I had seen made the bag look like a true Navy-- a dark blue! What I have is not a dark blue...it's more of a green/blue. The leather doesn't seem as pebbled as the original Navy leather, it's def more smooth. Luckily, I love it. I took pictures, and the color of the bag should not have looked that much different than everyone else's pictures. Therefore, I was still on a hunt for a truer Navy bag, and that deal is now sealed

    What do you ladies think? Does this look like the original Navy to you?

    Well, I dont have my hands on the "new" Navy but you are right; it looks a bit different. Less Navy and more gray/green/blue, like you said. It is gorgeous though!
