^NM that. The 23cm Medor does not come in gray, so PS1 it is!

I can't decide which red bag & would love opinions....
I own one of the bags already & was going to sell it. I've received an offer, but am now having seller's remorse (isn't that how it always goes ?) I have not accepted the offer yet.

So, I was thinking that I want/need another red bag. But now I can't decide between the two.

#1 Chanel Jumbo - Red Caviar OR #2 Balenciaga City - Rouge Theatre?

If you want to elaborate with more than just a #1 or #2 that would be greatly appreciated!

^ I'd say the Chanel because it's a classic and seems more versatile than the Balenciaga. You can wear it with casual outfits or to something more formal. I do have to admit the B-bag's color is gorgeous, though...

This is a hard one. Both bags are gorgeous and very different styles. IMO the Chanel is more classic but I don't know if it is a rare find (I don't know much about Chanel). However, the Rouge Theatre is a very rare Balenciaga find especially if it is in excellent condition. I know a ton of girls whose HG bag is that very same bbag Personally I'd go with the Chanel since I don't have a Chanel yet and also because I have a Tomato City with gorgeous leather already

Thanks MichelleYue & mkforever! I own & love both Chanel & Balenciaga which is why this is such a tough decision.

The B-bag is mine & it's brand new/never been used. I love the color & leather from 2005. I also love how vibrant the Chanel red is in comparison. They are so different.

I could almost justify having both because they are so different. lol

its a hard choice both are really lovely bags. The balenciaga will fit much more and has a deeper red color that I love, but the chanel is more classic. I guess it also depends how you dress most of the time. I would go with the balenciaga just based on the color and size.

While I prefer the style of the Chanel, I think if you already own a similar Chanel go with the Balenciaga because I like the colour of it much more.

Definitely the Jumbo Chanel red caviar! The red Chanel is just amazing, plus it's in caviar which is so much more hardy! What's not to love about this bag?

Thank you all so much for your input!

I am still undecided between the two & really, really wish that I could swing both right now.

I am going to hang onto the B-bag for now because I'm already having seller's remorse before it's sold & it would probably get worse once it's gone. If the Chanel is still available in a few months then maybe I'll get it at that time....that is, if I haven't already moved onto something else . It sure is pretty though.

I'm off the bag wagon and ready to have some fun . Not sure what my next purchase should be though. Here are the options.

1. YSL Muse 2.0 - not sure which color though.

2. Proenza Shouler PS1 but in Mustard yellow

3. Prada Lace Bowler

Any help is appreciated as always. Or any suggestions even I just want something very fun and upbeat.
