I'm going to be biased and pick #1. I saw both in person, I rejected the 2nd bag because, although it was beautiful the bows on the side (they're not too bad) just bugged me. When I saw #1, I fell in love almost immediately, it IS big though but, I love that big bag look! I did a thread on it recently but, here is a pic of me with it on. I'm 5'2" and a size 16.
[quote=picolo;917748]pursemama, the 1st bag is actually the smaller version of the big one. It's only 13.5" wide. The bigger version is 14.5" wide and taller. Here's another pic of the 1st bag from bergdorfgoodman.com:
Ooops..I just noticed that, sorry! Ya know what though, I saw the small version too (S.F. Saks had all 3, btw). I originally wanted the smaller version, the pic looked great but, when I saw it in person I didn't like the shape. I felt that it should've been alittle more longer vertically, horizontally it was perfect. It's one of those bags that you have to see for yourself and TRY on, unfortunately.
I also prefer bag #1. I almost bought bag #2 last month in New York, and it was gorgeous--really squishy, rich leather--but the only thing that held me back was those bows on the side. I'm 40, and I think would regret those bows after a while...
Hi. I love both too! But since I'm in love with oversized bag lately, I'm now considering between dark brown large napa tote and sugero satchel style. Can you please help taking a pic of the sugero satchel with you? Or at least a pic of the side that has bow? The leather is differ between these two? Is it heavy? I'm in Thailand and there's no this style of Miu Miu bag available here!! Your pic & comments will help a lot.
