New abbey medium hobo

  1. Okay, I haven't made a purchase for about nine months and yesterday I snatched up a black guccissima abbey medium hobo from bluefly.

    My question is to anyone out there who has this style. I've never seen it in person. Is it a decent sized bag? I'm almost 5' 10", slim/fit build and I don't want the bag to look too small on me.

    Any thoughts?
     
  2. That's a real nice bag. :smile: I don't know if I can offer any insight but I've got that in pink and I'm almost a whole foot shorter than you and it looks big-ish on me but not overly big. I think it'll look fine on you. :yes:
     
  3. I think it'll look great on you! Great choice you made too.
     
  4. Thanks! Can't wait to get it, except now I'm dying to get the medium messenger bag with the red and green strap. I guess that one will be available whenever I want it, but the abbey was a steal from Bluefly so it's better I got it now.
     
  5. i'm impressed you didn't make a purchase for 9 months! good self control!!!!
     
  6. It was less self control and more the DH factor. Unfortunately, he knows how much these bags are and thinks I'm a little nuts. But he's sweet enough to let me get away with the once or twice a year expensive bag purchases as long and they are on sale. And in return I let him get away with the latest and greatest electronic purchase or a new car mod.
     
  7. Congratulations on your purchase and for holding out for 9 monhts. Good Job!!!!
     
  8. enjoy
     
  9. I like the abbey in guccisima.
     
  10. congratulations on your new bag!!! i bet it's worth the 9 month wait!!! ;);)
     
  11. thats a goegeous bag!
     
  12. You know what. It came today and I didn't love it like I thought I would. It felt a little too rigid for my taste. Even my husband agreed that it just isn't my style. I love the bag independently, but on me it just seems like an ill fit. I'm going to send it back and go get the medium messenger with the red and green strap. I just love that bag and I figure there will always be more black bags to choose from.
     
  13. great bag!!
     
  14. Okay, so I did decide to return the black abbey - it's just too rigid for me. Instead, I went to Fashion Valley yesterday and picked up the Gucci medium messenger.

    Then I went over to Nordstrom and they had this Coach bag for half off - $248. I normally don't like the Coach signature, but the color was just soooo yummy. What do you girls think?
