The first was the b-bag that started it all. You can't get more iconic than that! And i totally agree with cupcakegirl - the proportions of the first are simply perfect. I don't think anyone can be too tall or too short for the first. Go for it, you know you want to!
I LOVE the First!!! I think it just depends on how much stuff you carry. If you don't carry too much, then definitely go for it. It's a great style and IMO, the proportions of the bag are absolutely perfect. And it's super easy to carry, whether hand held, on your arm or on your shoulder (I removed the weight distributor pad and it's super comfortable on the shoulder. The strap is an ideal length, not too long and not too short.) Hope that helps!
I l-o-v-e my First, I am 5'6 and wear heels often, it is such a great size if you do not carry a lot. I think this style looks good on everyone! I have seen large bags on petite women, small bags on lovely tall gals, I think anyone can rock any size they choose to carry. You will look great!
I say go for what you love, style and color. I have always been so happy when I got what I really wanted and didn't worry about it. I am the opposite of you - short but love big bags. Go with what is calling to you!! Let us know what you get!
I have glycine, atlantique and papyrus, I could not choose between them,they are all gorgeous.
You will have to hurry up if you want BL, Papyrus or Atlantique as they are last year's colours and stock levels are very low.
