Micro dilemmas of a petite girl...advice/help?

  1. Thank you! If you know a good SA for Barney's Dallas please let me know. I wish I could physically hunt around and try things on but I'm currently in the US for business/work & usually buy bags when I'm in Asia so it's hard to find a day off as well as not being completely familiar w hunting down bags here. Hopefully next week I'll have a day off to shop seriously! xox
     
  2. I would suggest getting a micro, but it is ultimately your preference. I'm 5'2 and I thought the micro was a better size and weight....sadly, I'm letting mine go to a better owner.
     
  3. My SA is Taraneh but anyone of the SA will charge over the phone and mail it to you.

  4. Oh, hey, don't be put off from getting the phantom. Its a lovely bag, but just remember won't look tiny on you, it will be noticed and will add a striking touch of your appearance. I use mine every day and love it. I feel its not as heavy as the mini.

    of course I am also going to buy a micro now. :smile:
     
  5. I'm 5ft tall, and while I prefer the weight of the micro, and the fact that it bumps into people less because it's smaller, I actually think it looks slightly porportionally weird on me, although I love how it looks in all the mod pics here.
     
  6. Oh no...now my heart is leaning for the phantom too!! I guess the perfect solution is to get both, huh? ;)
     
  7. I just bought my first Celine - a Micro luggage tote in jungle. The Celine store in NYC has lots - both in smooth and drummed leather. Barney's in nyc also has a couple, but only the tri-color. I would try calling the Celine store in NYC and see if they can ship it to you!
     
  8. stellarr, i am 5'0" as well and i have a micro. the mini is way too big on my frame so i would keep hunting for a micro. i say keep checking the shopping intels thread and just jump on one that you see!

    here's a photo reference of me & my micro:

  9. That's funny, the last time I called they said they were out of black or dune micros :sad:

    I ended up getting a mini, I think I'll aim for a micro in the fall. Thank you for your help!
     
  10. Wow, your micro looks beautiful!!! May I ask what color that is?
    After searching and calling up many stores I gave up and ordered myself a black mini. Hopefully because I'm used to carrying big bags I will be able to carry a mini okay. But my heart still lies on getting a micro too some day! xox
     
  11. Why r u letting yours go?
     
  12. I realized I like bags that I can carry on my shoulder more. Now searching for a box.
     
  13. It's bicolor black/white!
     
  14. They never know when they get shipments, so I think sometimes you have to keep calling. I called last Tuesday, they had no Micros in drummed leather. But then on Friday morning, they got a whole shipment and had it in black, dune and jungle, and also this bright orange color!

    I got the Micro but it doesn't hold much stuff .. thinking I will get a mini before I hear about the next price increase!

     
  15. hi! i am actually aiming to purchase a micro luggage in NYC during my 4-day stay there between august & september. i specifically want the micro in drummed Souris. Do you have an SA that I can contact and ask about the stock of the drummed Souris micro before I head there?

    Thank you!
