Thank you kindly. I broke it out today for a little wear but then I remembered one of the things that bothered me. The 2274 size is odd on my petite frame. When carried, it is heavy and the handles pinch my arms. But when worn crossbody, it looks too long and too big.
I am petite as well and also have a bi-color 2274. No problem with the size. I either carry the bag by hand or on my arm; I usually do not use the shoulder strap unless I am standing on a crowded train and want to free up my hands. I also have the larger 1786 when I need to carry more. I never feel that either one overwhelms me. You have a beautiful bag. Enjoy it!
I think it's a gorgeous bag and it looks great on you. However, there have been times when a bag just felt clunky to me. I know this sounds weird, but I had a hard time "connecting" with it (for lack of a better word) and it just never felt fully comfortable to me.
