I went to NM today and finally saw the color Appia in person! The color looks much better in person than on a computer screen!

BUT I dunno what style I wanna get!

The large veneta seems to be the safest choice (and best value), as I used to have one and it works fine with me. And plus it is the classic signature style!

Another choice is the belly veneta, but I wonder if that would look too overwhelming on me as I'm only 5'1", I mean the belly bottom may look very wide and rounded when full??

The third choice would be the tote bag, it has a very simple shape of course, I usually prefer tote bag over hobo style, but is this too "boring" compared to the veneta?

I will be no hope as I love all 3 of those bags you mentioned. But I will say belly because I have always wanted one...the shape is beautiful. What size would you be looking to get in the belly?

I guess large? The belly comes in two sizes? I need something similar to size of large veneta.

I think it will look fine on you. From what I have read the large belly is a little bigger then the veneta just because of its shape...but I'm sure when it is broken in it won't look as large.

Which bag are you leaning more towards?

I think I still prefer the large veneta. But maybe I should try the other two in person.

appia is a beautiful color- if you had a veneta and it worked well then maybe get another?

This is appia - screen shot from the BV site... So yes, looks like it could be considered a coral color...

Hi, and welcome back!

Definitely try all of the styles on before deciding. The Belly comes in two sizes, and the profile changes due to the rounded bottom--as does the capacity.

The large Veneta is such a comfortable and easy to carry bag for me, and I happen to like the streamlined shape. But you might well prefer one of the others. So try them and report back :smile:

Thanks!! I just placed an order with BG (so I can save a couple hundreds on tax!). I ordered the large veneta! I like the style as I had one before! Can't wait to get it as I just love that color! Neutral enough but not your regular brown or red or pink! I imagine the color will go so well with navy blue and grey (which I wear a lot!). Will report back when I get it!
