I wanted to post a review about the Alma B'N'B' because there really isn't too much out there. There are a couple of YouTube videos but nothing that is really for the bag in a positive manner. The bag is a little bit smaller than the Alma PM due to the bag-in-a-bag concept. It has a grain leather center compartment with 2 zippers, and 2 side slip pockets that are on each side of the bag on the outside. I can fit a full-size Emilie wallet in the outside pockets with no problem. This makes for easy access to my wallet. The other side I put a card holder and sunglasses in. The center compartment I put my eva clutch in there with all my 'loose items inside of it' .

The shiny gold hardware and black leather gives the bag both an elegant look and is somewhat edgy at the same time.

The corners are not really a problem to me I don't think they are pointy. The images online are not a real representation of how they look in person. It is really only if the bag is held at a sideways upward slant that the light puts emphasis on the corners.

The shoulder strap is a great length that complements the bag nicely when worn by elbow.
See pics below!! this is a great bag and I think it deserves more LVOE than it has been getting. FullSizeRender.jpg image6.JPG image7.JPG image8.JPG

I think this bag is gorgeous! It is definitely on my short list to get one day. My choice would be the black as well. It looks great on you- may I ask how tall are you for reference?

Thanks so much!! I love it so much. Im pretty picky about purses. It's passed all my tests! Easy to get my wallet in and out at a drive thru and easy to get my work badge in and out as well!! It's a keeper.

Thanks for posting! I was looking at this bag a while back and lamenting that there are virtually no reviews or pictures on the forum. I think the side slip pockets look very convenient, and keep the bag from being the "black hole" that so many bags are. It looks great on you! Congrats!

Very true! I like how the bag has different compartments so that things dont get lost. I had a Speedy B 25 and things had to be rearranged everytime i pulled my wallet out. I like to reach in my bag and go. I know that sounds lazy, but i cannot stand shuffling through a bag. This one is just perfect. If you carry a ton of stuff, it may not be the bag for you, though. I am dont carry much at all so it is really roomy to me.

When I first started looking at it online, there was a photo of one that was at a strange angle and it looked like a weird shape so I steered clear. It doesnt have a weird pointy shape to it like some have stated. I think maybe a couple of bags may have been made that way but mine doesnt look awkward at all. : - ) Sorry for the long rant.

Thanks!! I have owned the Montaigne BB and Speedy B 25 but sold them. I also have a Neverfull PM and an Eva clutch. The Montaigne just didn't do anything for me I think it was too small. The Speedy I really didn't care for bc it was in azur and I thought I liked azur but I'm a mono girl I think.
