I'm interested in getting a mid-city tote by Foley + Corinna. I saw this one in Glossy Eggplant that looked pretty cool but I'm seeing different pictures of it that portray it as either a wine-type color or a true purple.

I would prefer a true purple color. I don't think wine is my color but if it's at least a dark purple hue that may work. Can some of you who either have a better eye for color or a different monitor than me tell me what you think?

Here's a photo from ShopBop. I tend to trust their photography, I got it from a bag forum site though here:

Hmm...I just don''t love it - I feel like the proportions are weird. Sorry, I don''t mean to be a downer - the color looks beautiful, and if you love it I think you should go for it - a girl can never have too many purple bags

From all the pictures that you posted I would guess it to be a more deep purple color.

Are you talking about the size of the bag on that picture of the girl I posted? If so that bag is WAY too big.

I want the mid-city tote. Let me know what you think about this one here size-wise:

Part of my motivation for this one is that it has that long strap. I love the idea of a hobo for europe too but I think a strap bag for long walking trips may be better.

I love the long strap too! It looks like it wouldn''t be too big on the last pic you linked. I think this bag is really funky!
It''s hard to say about the actual colour, but personally I liked all the shades it appeared to be.

I think the color is really pretty. Can you see it in person somewhere?

I adore these bags!! Like others, it''s hard to tell the shade of the bags (I haven''t seen this colour in stores yet) but I like them all. I also saw a girl on the street wearing the bag across her body (like a messenger)....


Also check www.bagshop.com as they have discounted prices. Check under ''Anna Corinna''. they may not have the colour you''re looking for but you can call to inquire.

I would like the strap to go across my body but I''m not sure if it looks long enough! Does it?? That''s part of the appeal for me.

Bummer! I hope one pops up for you - maybe ask the gals over on TPF to help you find one?

I''d really love to just try one on. It seems cool but you never know til you see it in person.

The girl I saw had the bag across her back (it wasn''t hanging at her side), so in that case, i don''t think the strap is long enough if you want the bag to hang like a messenger. I''m not sure if that''s what you''re looking for but I loved the look!!

Good luck with your hunt!
