    Please post photos of your bag here, also try and include as much info w/ it as possible for others to reference; price, color, style, etc . . . This thread is to serve as a resource for everything about Bettys.
    PICS ONLY please, NO chatter
     
  2. This is my Spring Summer 06 Ivory Betty in the larger size (Spring medium size, summer large size). I got her on sale for 40% off when Nordstroms first did their sale. So she ran me a little over $1k. Not bad for a bag that started at $1900+. She is absolutely perfect for me since she is nice and squishy.

  3. Here is my betty.. I think it's SS 06 too. It's a medium black. I paid beaucoup dollars on this baby because it's soooo hard to find a medium.. Don't regret it at all. Very durable bag and it's petite enough to bring w/ me everywhere.

  4. Here's my small size black patent betty. She is totally stunning in real life and the patent leather is very shiny. A fellow purse forumer said that Chloé do the best patent leather and I agree 100%. :yes: I am completely over the moon with her. Please do not be fooled by the dimensions of the small betty. It is like a tardis-looks small but fits loads of stuff into it. I think it is the perfect size (and I am used to toting around my Chloé paddingtons or Fendi spy) and I can easily fit my purse/wallet, keys, make up bag, mobile, umbrella, perfume and other bits of junk in without any hassle. I LOVE the details such as the little purse and the pockets. This bag is a dream and I shall never part with her! I am SO glad that I waited for the black patent as I think it is by far the best betty.
    O.k, here are the pics, and the dimensions of this bag are: Height: 7.3 inches, Length (measured across the top of the bag): 11.7 inches, Diameter: 5 inches. All measurements are approximately done and I have not taken into account the pockets when measuring diameter. The handles are approx 8.5 inches drop.
    I purchased my betty from the cricket boutique in Liverpool.

  6. Here's my small Betty from spring collection 06. I just bought her from a bag addict like me on a German bag forum. I paid 550€ instead of the original price 950€. The best things is she's brand new. The leather is so soft and I just love her.:heart: I agree that the small is pretty big and holds a ton. It holds about the same as my Bbag city. I'm so glad that I found her because I always loved the Betties without the big rings. So I guess me and her we were just meant to be:yes:

  8. Here's my small Betty patent bag in dark red from Fall '06. It retails for $1250. Totally in love, the color is awesome and it's just the right size. The only problem is that the front and back of the bag are identical so I get the pockets mixed up. But otherwise...yea, crazy about this bag. It's very light, too. I'm including two pics of me holding her. I'm 5'5.

  10. I just purchased this Bordeaux patent Betty last week at Saks in Chicago. I think it is Fall 2006, but I do not know enough about this style. Anyway, It's retail price was $1850.00, but I lucked out and grabbed it for $725.00 and had it shipped home to avoid the sales tax.:yahoo:
    I will post more photos up close when I have someone to assist me.

  13. I like them without the rings! Although the rings are very pretty too!!

    Here's my ivory large Betty, I Love the color, it was much creamier than I expected when I got it....kinda like french vanilla or a very pale creamy yellow, a favorite color of mine so it was an added bonus because I expected it to just be an off white based on the Bergdorf Goodman online picture. And looking at this picture a camera just doesn't do it justice, it's much more creamy than what it shows up as....
