I had ordered some shoes and purses online from DSW for the 20's party but ended up not using them so I went to DSW to return them. Then I had $70 of free credit (reward certificates) to use, so I ended up looking at purses (that's the danger of returns..it often leads to more purchases, LOL). I really couldn't decide between these two purses so I brought them both home. What do you think--which one do you like better, or keep both, or return both?

1-3. Cole Haan Vintage Valise Brooke Small Flap Tote in Pacific. I like the turquoise stripes and this would be a good bag for summer. The pattern and color does make it a little trickier to match with outfits than a solid color purse though. But I doubt I would have been attracted to the purse as much if it was all one color. They had a red stripe one as well, but I liked the turquoise better.

4-6. Michael Kors Astor Satchel in gunmetal. I already have this exact bag in black, but I do use it all the time. It's a great size to hold all my stuff and I like the studs (plus the grey and studs match my new wedge sneakers!) I do like to duplicate things I like in different colors (like Frye boots in black and cognac), but is this too much to have the same bag in two colors? I know Angie said she has two of these bags in different colors.
