Betty Owners!

  1. Contemplating a Betty at 40% off.....never had one before.

    All you Betty owners...do you find it a practical bag? Easy to use?

    thanks ;)
     
  2. I have the medium in chocolate. I love it. I keep my phone in a outside pocket for easy access. I also leave the top partially unzipped for easy access. It is a little different than carrying the Paddy, but good in different ways.
     
  3. I am not quite sure about the straps...do you find them too wide and do you use it as a shoulder bag?
     
  4. I just bought a medium Betty. I find it very heavy which I thought was surprising! Call me crazy but it seems heavier than a Paddington. It does not go over my shoulder but I don't find the straps too wide to be comfortable when I hold it. Out of the five pockets, I find two of them practical (for cell) but the others are too oddly shaped or too small. In spite of it all, I LOVE this bag! I've only had it for a few days but that's my experience so far.
     
  5. thanks! think I am going to get one tomorrow...40% off is too tempting!
     
  6. i haven't been using mine much because it's black and i think more of a fall/winter bag for me but i really like it and for 40% off...go for it! what size/color will you get?

    p.s. i find the sizes so confusing so i'm not sure which mine is but the handle drop is about 8 inches and fits easily on my shoulder if that helps?
     
  7. I love the Betty. I flip the straps so taht it is more comfortable on the shoulder. It is a bit wide otherwise, atleast I find so.
     
  8. I do use it as a shoulder bag. As long as I do not have a bulky coat (like in the winter) it fits nicely on my shoulder. I love the Paddy, but the Betty is a nice change.
     
  9. I think it's a perfect bag to tote my things to work (I have the large size) It fit easily over my shoulder, but I usually carry it on my arm. I'm thinking of getting the next size down. It's a great bag! You'll really like it!
     
  10. ooh, if you did buy it Miss Bradshaw, will you post the piccie so we can see it please :smile:
     
  11. Miss bradshaw-Where did you see the bettys at 40% off? I am still wanting the medium size black patent and this could be my way to get it!

  13. Liberty? Is that a shop? I'm confused?!
