Any input from you lovely ladies? I know some of you don't like the Brief b/c of the top opening? Why exactly is that? Hard to get into? I'm leaning more towards the Day or the Brief, but the Work is such a classic I thought I should consider it as well.

Thanks so much!!!:love:

how about telling us how you dress for work? very formal as opposed to semi formal or even smart casual? cos i attach a different 'logic' to each style, and i genuinely feel that the proportion or style of the bag should be taken into consideration in a whole ensemble.

w/o considering the clothes, i'd say the Work is just chic. i wear my Work with dresses of slim cut cos i don't like to look too feminine. like shoes, the bag does make or break a look. jmho.

the Day to me is the most casual of the 3 styles. it's like a hobo, so it goes better with 'flowy' clothes... hope i make sense :shame: the colour of the bag also affects the image. eg a tannish colour is just more casual than a red or black one.

so, to conclude, the Brief is really more suitable as a workbag. it's more structured, giving off a more no-nonsense image than the other 2 styles. don't want to go too deep into this with my anal logic. i try to be as objective as i can. i apply this to all bags, not just bbags.

I love the work in black , I use mine daily, but the day in black with GSH is really nice as well but very diffrent. Casual yes but the GSH dresses it up a bid , ohhh sorry to not be a help

Sassy... I previously owned a Rouge VIF City and a Navy Twiggy and neither were practical enough for me to use every day (colour and style) thats just me.

I then got a Black Brief and I was totally in LOVE...

For school, work, outings... I have been using this bag EVERY day since I got her.

I find it the most comfortable wearing style of all three I have owed, and black goes so well with everything!

It's easy to get in to... I dont have a problem with the opening at all.

I am SOLD on the Brief and will get one in another colour in the future for sure!

I vote for the Brief :tup:

Thanks for all your replies! Right now I'm working in an art gallery, so I guess I would say that I dress "upscale casual or trendy", but definitely not "business". I usually wear pencil skirts, nice trousers, skinny jeans, or trouser jeans with heels. I'm thinking that the Brief might be a bit too structured for me. I'm also hoping to go back to grad school in NYC in the fall, so the Work would be practical for that. But I feel like the Work is almost too big for everyday use (I'm 5"10', BTW, and wear heels alot, so I think I'm just paranoid..LOL). I think I'm leaning more towards the Day unless I can find a yummy 05 Work b/c those are just the bomb diggity.:jammin:

my favorite size for school and work is the work size!! if fits everything that i need. the rh work is slightly lighter than the gh so it really depends if you're comfortable carrying a bag bit heavier. i can't imagine carrying a gh work to school because of the weight.

Hands down...no pun intended, the Day is the ultimate in comfort and casual. I keep buying and selling the more structured bags, because though I love the look they are a PITA to handle compared to the "no hands," Day.

That said, I'd look first for the 05 Work, just cause it will be gorgeous and classy. The Day is just a bit casual IMO for daily a daily work day. I'd buy the Day for everything else...especially school. Good luck.. Let us know when you decide!

what're trouser jeans? *hide* wide-legged ones? goodness, you can surely get away with big bags when you stand so tall. the Work isn't really that big. i find the City a better size for petites like me but it really doesn't carry alot (and i'm not the sort to lug my life in a bag). i love trousers too but take care not to use big bags with them. i only wear slim skirts/dresses or cig pants/skinnies with the Work.

the Day in RH or GH sounds good, too! keep us posted what you decide or find in the end :biggrin:
