Considering Caramel Cassette...

I posted this in the Chanel thread but thought it was only right to get opinions in the BV thread also!

To preface, I am a huge fan of caramel / camel toned shoes and bags, and have been (im)patiently trying to get my hands on either the spring Chanel 19 in camel or the future fall Chanel 19 in tan but unless I trade in my organs, I don't think I will be lucky enough to score a variation of this bag. Also, it's starting to drive me nuts how impossible it is to get seasonal colors and styles in popular bag silhouettes at Chanel.

That aside, I am debating getting the Bottega Veneta padded cassette bag in caramel in place of the Chanel 19 just so I can add a beautifully colored caramel bag to my collection before the weather is consistently warm. I tried it on recently and was very impressed with the color, quality, and look on my frame. I have the BV mini pouch in this color and absolutely love it, but need the day to day crossbody version for my life.

I'd love my fellow BV lovers thoughts on whether this might be a decent alternative and whether you have this bag in your collection also.

TY in advance :smile:

I have the padded cassette in black and absolutely love it. It is very lightweight and unique. I’m even considering getting another color. The caramel is color is gorgeous, the boutique I went to were sold out of this color in all the styles. I want caramel in the small Jodi.

I have it in the mini interaccio pouch and I used it 24/7 last summer (see attached)

It truly is the perfect shade of tan. Some tans can be too orange, some can be too brown - this isn't at all. I was hesitant getting another bag in this same tan color, but it's a totally different bag with more capacity, so I may pull the trigger today.

I tried on the Almond color - while beautiful, I have pale skin and blonde hair and it just feels like it's an extension of my skin lol. I need more caramel tones I think.
