    Default Violet!

    *Note: My suck photography skills do not do this bag's color justice! It is dark and plummy in regular lighting and vibrant grape in sunlight.

    Anyhoooo, I love purple. I think Ive bought every single one of RM's purple colors to date. This one is the best. It is just....straight up purple! Along with the color, all the other little details make this a superior bag in my opinion; the stitched inner handles, metal zipper replacements in place of plastic, leather trimmed pockets, and a strap in the same yummy purple color!This bag has the best quality I have seen from RM yet, along with my MAM I have in Envy. You really can't go wrong buying these latest pieces. =)

















    Violet along with some other jewel tone MAMs

    Here is a pic of the Violet Nikki from Luna Boston. It is the same color as my MAM; my photography skills just suck. Anyways, what do you think looks better in this color? Nikki or MAM.

    I would go for the Nikki. The only reason being is that the only thing I didn't like about the MAM were the tassels ( which I noticed you have removed )
    I'm not really a fan of the unfinished tassels. And I don't like that they are not purple on both sides. IMO the tassels are one of the main attractions of the MAM. So for this reason I would go for the Nikki.
    By the way, it is a pretty gorgeous colour.

    The color is gorgeous.

    I love both the Nikki and the MAM, because they are really different styles.
    BTW, I am so jealous of your MAM collection

    Gung you said that you've purchased every purple shade. Can I ask how similar this Violet shade is to the Jammin Purple? I would love to see a comparison photo, if you don't mind

    ^In pictures it looks similar to Jammin Purple but its really not in real life. Its definitely a sturdier leather and its not anywhere near as light/pastel as Jammin Purple is. In certain lights, its a dark purple and in pictures with flash it looks a bit bright. I actually would prefer a purple that toned down a few notches on the brightness scale

    this is one gorgeous purple! it is a bright purple with a hint of pinkish undertones. this violet color is close to purple haze, but still a bit pinkier.
    jammin' purple was still brighter and pinker -- personally not one of my fav purples.

    i think my all time fav rm purples were concord and the one that was just called 'purple'. hehe

    IMO the 3rd pic is closest to the actual color.
