I don't think so at all, I kind of like the funky look of a smaller girl carrying a larger bag. Also, it ultimately depends on how comfortable and how much you like the look with the bag, you should go and try it out in the store.

As for the bottom, don't set it on anything wet. If you notice the bottom of mine, right after I got it, I set it on the little shelf in the bathroom on what I thought was just a paper towel, but it was actually one of those wet nap things. Ugh. It didn't make *too* big of a difference, but just so you know, I got this bag in about March or April 2004 and carried it a LOT. The vachetta, IMO, is still decent. :smile:

LVbabydoll, I love your mandarin epi jasmin! :love: Is is hard to match outfits with?
Thanks! :biggrin: Sometimes it is but I tend to use it when I'm wearing a white top/sweater/jacket and jeans, or even an orange top..I just try not to get too matchy matchy with the oranges..like one shirt I like wearing it with is more of a burnt orange and actually looks great with the bag. The one color I tend to stay away from wearing when I carry it is black..too Halloween lol. Otherwise, I'm so into my bags, I'll buy my clothing pieces according to what matches them lol.

I'm the same height as you. You can pull off carrying an Alma for sure! It won't look too big for you. And like everyone said, be careful where you set it down.
