I own that exact fendi baguette and it's one of my most useful bags. VERY soft and VERY squishy leather, however, so if you like a structured bag, that's not for you.

That fendi baguette is so comfortable to wear and matches everything, I've been very happy with it. It's very lightweight and the magnetic closure is strong. I wear it on the shoulder, on my arm, or even crossbody (strap is a little bit short for crossbody for me at 5'4" but not THAT bad if I wear it in the back), you can even combine the two straps to make one longer strap that is a perfect crossbody.

I've seen the padded cassette and it's a little too pillowy for me, not sure how much it weighs because I haven't tried it, but I would imagine the baguette to fit more overall and be more versatile overall.

I prefer the Fendi, think it has better staying power than the casette. Love the look, but in two years it will probably be ‘that one IT bag from the summer of 2020’. Think it will age badly, because it’s a bit gimmicky with the padding. Also they look beat up very quickly. Still very pretty though!
