i am looking to buy a handheld bag and like the alma. i am a mom of 2 (a toddler and a baby), going back to work soon and usually dress very casual on a day to day basis (jeans, blouse/tops). do u think vernis is over the top?
Hmm, it really depends on how casual is casual. I mean you can still dress in jeans with blouse/tops but still look chic, then go for the vernis. Else, I would settle for Epi, which is a little understated but classy. I think Epis are great for work. At the end of the day, you decide if that bag is really you.
I love Vernis alma and I totally think it can be dressed down with jeans and a t-shirt and still look very cool and chic, BUT I wouldn't use it everyday for work. I just don't see it as a work bag. So, my choice would be Epi (maybe in Rubis, it's so beautiful)
