OK, so I guess I fit the definition of a real woman - someone who can never make up her mind!!! Over the weekend, I bought the Silvana Bag from Nordstroms at 40% off. While browsing over the internet & all of the sales, I came across the Alyana bag several times. While I was at Nordies picking up my Silvana, I took a quick look at the Alyana in the Ivory color (which was not on sale). Trying it on very quickly (I had my granddaughter w/me and couldn't really take my time), it seemed like the handles didn't fall down nicely and the chain strap wasn't long enough to carry the bag on my shoulder so I forget about the Alyana & just got the Silvana - which I do really like a lot. Ever since, however, I just can't get the Alyana out of my head and after reading a few posts about the bag, I realize that maybe I just didn't give the style enough of a chance to work. I keep going back & forth wondering if I made a mistake & bought the wrong bag. Looking back at all the bags I've bought over the least year, all of them are satchels or bags with dual straps (shorter handles & a longer shoulder strap). I haven't bought a nice hobo or shoulder bag in quite a long time, so the Silvana is a nice change of pace. But on the downside, the bag has no extra pockets. It just has one main section with a small slip pocket inside. The Alyana has an open middle section with two more zippered sections on either side. What do you think? Given the choice between these two bags, which one would you choose and why? Should I stay with my first choice of the Silvana or see if my SA can still get the Alyana? BTW, no matter which one I choose, I still want it in Teal.
