Love the bag but not the straps.
I agree with this too. I loved this bag and went to try it on. The larger version is just too huge. The smaller version is more reasonable. However, the straps seem really stiff and sort of uncomfortable. I really like the over all look of this bag, it is gorgeous IRL. But it just seems a bit too uncomfortable to carry.

I tried it on in the chanel boutique and it was love at first site! I like the small version and the handles seem manageable in that size. I just wanted to know if it would make a good first chanel purchase as they will be a bit few and far between for me.

I had it and returned it because it was too big, and the smaller one was too small. The shoulder straps don't stay on the shoulder. It is a very pretty bag though.
