Being new to the BV sub-forum and new to BV, I am happy to say that I was able to make a decision about my Teen\Small dilemma. This was largely due to all of you! I was able to find a new-unused small Caramel Jodie on a reputable site.

Shoulder drop of the Teen was insufficient for what I was wanting…and I just love the big(ger), slouchy look of the small. After a struggle over colors, and tending to be partial to black bags, this seemed like a good neutral that I can use year-round.

You all have been so helpful! Will return with pics!
Congrats! I’ve been eyeing this combination in foreverrrr! Hope you enjoy it and please do post pics! :heart:

Just got my first Bottega and it’s a mini jodie! I’m so amazed by how soft and light she is! I figure she’s more of a spring/summer color but I can’t wait to use her!

Oh I think you could totally dress this beautiful lavender shade for fall/winter! I’d wear it year-round! Congrats!:love:

Agree! This color would look beautiful with charcoal gray, heathered browns, deep plum and eggplant, navy blue, to name a few. I also think it would pair well with chalcedony and tanzanite jewelry accents. So pretty!

Picked this up a few months ago but haven't shared/used it yet. Wasn't sure how I felt about the Jodies (any size) bc I already have and am still very happy with my classic hobos (large black, med red). I also found a very vintage tiny red one on ebay a few years ago... which def doesn't hold a lot and reminded me of the mini Jodies when they came out (I included a side-by-side to show the size comparison).

Most of my BVs are black, so when I started getting interested in a clutch-sized bag that had the option of being hands-free (bc let's be real, that's basically what it is lol) I told myself if I saw a pop of color I liked, I might bite the bullet. I knew I didn't want a color that was too... "popular", and didn't want one that was too Spring or too Fall. I almost pulled the trigger on Raintree, but decided it was definitely very evening/fall... and maybe a cop-out for me as a substitute for black. Loved seeing all the pics/reading the advice here!

My pics always make it seem more blue, but it's def more teal. I do like how the color shifts depending on what you wear.

Lovely color! :love: mini Jodie is such a great versatile bag IMO. Enjoy!
Thank you for posting a comparison picture with the mini classic hobo! I like that both are different enough :smile:
Would you say both have similar capacity? Which one fits more?

Thanks! I think once I do start/have a chance to use it I will be very happy with it.

The MJ definitely holds more - the vintage mini hobo is flat, like all the OG hobos, so it really does BARELY hold anything...:giggle: maybe my phone (Samsung Galaxy Fold3), my BV card holder (men's, 6 slot), and my car key fob. The croissant shape of the MJ means I can put way more inside. Hope that helps!

Thank you! I wouldn’t have guessed the OG hobo fits that little looking at the picture

It has been a long time since I stepped into BV. I think the abrupt change in CD made me lose interest. Anyway this pillow mini is very interesting. If I were a collector and/or a gastroenterologist, I’d get one just to display.

Thank you so much!

Thank you! Small is flying to me right now;)

Thank you!!! :smile:


If I could, I would take them all hehe thank you for your comment, really appreciate it. They did not have a small jodie in fondant in the boutique so I tried a black one (but silver hardware is no for me) :smile: the teen was in potion colour which I really love. I did what you recommeneded i.e. bought a small jodie in fondant online. It will be with me tomorrow hehe love this fast EU shipping. If she stays with me, the next handbag will be a large intrecciato pouch (hope in the near future) :biggrin:
I bought the small in Fondant too and I love it. I usually prefer smaller bags than this now but the small is so timeless and has such a perfect slouch which shows the leather off beautifully. It’s very ‘arty’ and reminds me of the styles I had when I was younger. The size is perfect on you and I wish you joy when wearing it!

So gorgeous! I was 95% leaning towards Blaster (other colour was grape) but I think I’m set on Blaster now
