    Default HELP! Big Decision ahead....

    Hi Girls,

    I know I don't post on here much but you have all been quite helpful in my new RM obsession! I haven't purchased yet however have been drooling for 2 months over the MAB Leaf and I also like the Sunshine color.

    I saw my first RM in person today at Nordstroms, however it was a mini and I want the MAB. I'm six feet tall so it's more fitting :) The one they had was Sunshine and I fell in love, however I have been swooning over the Leaf forever! Even corresponded with Codi at RM but couldn't decide!

    Any recommendations? I am dying to make the purchase this week. It's my first and I want it to be just right :)

    Thanks Ladies!

    What other colors do you have in your collection? Do you like bags that you can hold on to for many season? Or do you usually resell them after a while? I think the leaf is amazing, a color that you can wear almost any season.. the sunshine is super gorgeous also though

    It sounds like you're more in love with the leaf colour. IMO, if you're obsessing
    over a certain colour for 2 months, you should get that one. I also agree with Jen that
    you'll probably get more wear out of the Leaf. HTH

    Thanks ladies!

    Jen, to answer your questions....I never re-sell. There's pics of my bags on my home page, mainly LV signatures, my Burberry check and some other basics. My fave bags are my Louis Vuitton's. Jen---just a quick question for you.....is your yellow MAM yellow or sunshine? BTW, I think it's adorable!

    Marilena, you are right. The leaf has been the obsession.....until I saw the sunshine in person! AAAAARRRGGGHHH!!!

    The Nordy SA told me the green looked like Christmas! Can you believe that? She said she has seen one in person. Maybe that's because she was trying to sell me the Sunshine today although I was clear I wanted the MAB, not MAM. What a downer.....

    Hey! I think you should go with the leaf, just b/c it seems like a more versatile color to use all year long. However, I would buy it from somewhere you can return it just in case you don't like it, since you haven't seen it in real life. Sometimes the bags look different from the stock photos...I fell in love with the Grape MAM online and when I finally got it in real life, I decided it wasn't for me. Good luck deciding and let us know which one you end up with!!!

    I would go with a MAB Leaf. The Sunshine leather is really great and it is very pretty but you will have to baby it. I have seen the Leaf and the leather is more structured and stiff than the Sunshine (which is softer IMO). Hope this helps!

    I would go with the Leaf. The color is really deeply saturated and its beautiful for spring like the Sunshine is, but is more versatile IMO.

    I would say leaf. They are both gorgeous colors, but I think sunshine is more of a spring/summer color, whereas leaf you can wear all year round! Plus I love the way leaf looks with the gold hardware! Good luck on your decision & keep us posted!

    I was going to say leaf too. If you could have bought two colors, then I would say both. But the leaf will take you through the year, where as the yellow is definitely a seasonal bag.
