  1. you are going to LOVE the light taupe! I bought in Italy a few years back and am still obsessed. I also wear denim all the time and never had an issues with color transfer.

    Can't wait to see photos!

  2. Can't wait to see the photos! I also have light taupe and absolutely adore it.
     
  3. So I ordered the mini and micro to compare. Here they are on me. Having trouble deciding which to keep. In the second to last photo I put the strap from the mini on the micro bag just to see how it would look if I had the micro strap shortened.

    Any thoughts?

  4. Micro 100%!
    The Mini looks way too big on you IMO

  5. I’ll take some more pictures because I think that mirror skews things lol. The micro feels a little small and the mini feels a little big, but I definitely prefer the strap on the mini and it’s nice that it has feet.
     
  6. Another comparison. Please excuse the background mess, I’m packing for a trip.

  7. i think the mini also looks good on you. is it very heavy?
     
  8. Thanks, I like both! I’m leaning towards the mini because I own a nano luggage and I can’t think of a situation where I would choose the micro belt over my nano luggage - it does fit more but I’m still limited if I were to need several of the items I typically carry at the same time.

    The mini belt feels comparable in weight to the micro luggage. I think it’s fairly light for its size.
     
  9. The other thing I would note is that filling the micro belt with heavy items (like a water bottle) would make me nervous. It feels like a small bag meant to carry fewer and lighter things so I wouldn’t want to weigh it down for fear of straining the bag. However, the mini definitely feels sturdy enough to carry heavier items and it wouldn’t be unbearable. I wouldn’t want to go for a long walk with it filled up lol but for errands by car, taking to work, shopping, etc I think the mini is a reasonable weight even with some heavy things inside.

  11. clearly your heart is with the mini :smile:
     
  12. I think I do love the mini but am worried it's not proportionate on me. I guess I wish I were built more for this bag haha
     
  13. I still think the Mini is a bit too big for you
     
  14. The mini looks good on you :smile:

  15. I also think the Mini overwhelms your frame. It all depends on how you will wear it - are you in a region where you’re wearing lighter clothes or coats most of the year? If you mostly wear jeans and thin shirts I think the Micro fits you perfectly, especially on your shoulder. For bigger bulkier items the Mini would maybe look more proportionate. But as is in the photos it is a little overwhelming.

    I also think the Belt bag doesn’t work too well as an oversized bag, but that’s just my opinion. Good luck deciding!
