thanks guys! I actually already have Speedy 30 and used to have Speedy 25. I'm a speedy girl! Recently I become interested in Alma, maybe as i grow older, my taste becomes more dressy... well not too dressy that's out of my comfort zoneIt depends on what sort of look you're after. Alma tends to be more dressy, while Speedy is more casual. My mom has an Alma and I have a Speedy 30. My Speedy is definitely roomier than her Alma. But we swap a lot. When travelling she likes to borrow my Speedy. I've borrowed her Alma a few times to go out for a dinner. I even carried her Alma once to a job interview.
Hope it helps. Enjoy your shopping!
Really... no wonder the other day when I saw the regular Alma in store I was surprised that it was smaller than I thought!!! I do think the regular one looks a tiny bit too small now(from the look) and the Alma mm is just too huge for what I need.it depends a bit i think. are you talking before or after the fall 2010 redesign of the alma? i think prior to fall 2010, the regular alma was a little larger than it is now, but i don't know if it was larger than the speedy 30.
