Believe it or not, I actually sold my white elfin (noone thinks THAT ONE is gay?) to get the ted baker needle and I love it. I just love it.
Call me gay anytime, I don't give a tiny little rat's @ss. Lilac anytime over white. I would've preferred silver like the ipods, but lilac is very nice too. I used to have the plain jane black elf, and I saw the other one too (kinda dark gold) and I think lilac is for me. One thing though, the white elfin has some kind of special enamel on it that makes it both shiny and slippery, and more resistant to cracks, and that would have been nice to have that in lilac because a lot of them get cracks on the upper left top corner.
