Hi! There is a sale on for a betty chain tote in black in where i live! It has marked down several times and it is sitting at a good price..still expensive but well from where it was! Anyhoo, i just want to know does it sit comfortably! i didn't have time to mull over it as i had to go back to work but when i tried it i felt it was rather heavy..dont know whether it cause it had so much padding! also i found it bulky and felt my arm was resting on the bag if you know what i mean as the handle drop is quite long. Just wanted to know whether cause they pad it out thats affecting my judgement?? its a lovely bag..i love the chain detail which i think brings the bag to live! also do you think patent will be a classic style especially with the bettys? i don't want to get a patent bag and find it out of style after a year!
