I'm totally undecided between the two shapes in Epi Black. I love the speedy, but I also own it in the cerises and the damier. To get another one, WHY? but i love that the epi black looks sophisticated yet can be thrown around (i have toddlers; sometimes i don't have time think where i'm throwing my bag at home.) I guess I'm more comfortable with the shape b/c it's habitual to carry the speedy around! creature comfort! I don't have the Alma in any pattern, but I wonder if it's too much black on my 5'4" frame or too cumbersome or too formal for everyday. I'm not interested in the other colors and definitely not the Jasmine shape in black. so could you ladies help me decide between the black epi speedy or the alma?
