    Default Im on zee fence about two bags

    What do you guys think?

    Here is a custom purple Nikki. It is a chameleon and goes between super vivid purple in sunlight to a grayish lilac in regular night.
    My initial thoughts were "oh its not dark dark purple" and "this subdued purple may very be extremely versatile and much more so than a dark purple."



    Here is my violet MAM: Its a straight up dark royalty purple. I thought wow its purple!!!
    But...how versatile could it be?



    Do you love both? Hate both? Like one?
    In my neurotic-ism to cut down my collection, I am trying to tell myself the MAM is too dark and the Nikki is too light and too much like my gray Nikki shown here




    What would you do!? Keep both, one, or chuck em both?

    I like the color on the MAM better it looks brighter and I like the birdies.

    Did you take the pictures of the MAM and the purple Nikki in the same lighting?

    ^Good call! I will do that now =D

    Edit to add: Here are some custom purple/violet side by side pics. Some are with flash, some are not.






    Looking at these now, I feel like the Nikki has the more sophisticated purple while the MAM is more of a "hollaaaa, check me out, I love purple and I found the most purpley bag I could find" kind of bag, if that makes any sense, lol.

    I definitely prefer the more subdued tone of the custom Nikki. The Violet MAM just seems a bit too bright IMO. My vote is to keep the Nikki over the MAM.

    They are completely different bags in my opinion and have different feels to them. I would use the MAM for fun and spring/summer. The Nikki would be for everyday and fall/winter. I would say that the Nikki is definitely more like the gray Nikki but with a bit of flare.

    i favor the subdued color of the nikki, but i think it has enough pop to justify keeping along with the grey nikki.

    i feel your pain -- i am in the same obsessive boat. i feel like i have too many variations of the same bags. its ridiculous!
    i feel like i should part with some and try branching out to different designers, but i know i want something comparable to the mam and mac. so then i don't know what to part with or what get that is similar but different designer and i am back to hoarding at square one!


    gawd, i am so not normal.
    hmmmm... maybe something RED next

    I love the color of the Nikki.

    It is an eggplant purple, while the MAM is a bright purple.

    hands down it is the Nikki for me!!!

    I prefer Nikki than MAM most of the time. Plus the Nikki color is a sophisticated purple, can be used in casual and semi-formal setting as compared to the MAM purple. IMO it looks different from the grey Nikki, so I vote keep the Nikki too

    Blergh! So many conflicting feelings. I have searched for a straight up purple-purple bag for so long, I almost feel like a traitor for not being unequivocally
    in love with the Violet MAM (It is PURPLE!)

    Still thinking....
    Thank you everyone for your thoughts!

    Both are pretty bags.. I like the custom purple better than the violet but neither are IT... I think you should continue on your mission for your perfect purple RM...

    I loove the Custom Purple Nikki
    - but I do understand your comment about the similarity to the grey. It looks closer to the FIG color.

    For me, the MAM is too bright. i could never pull that off.

    I agree these are not very close in color and could have completely different uses. Good luck on your choice!
