  1. It really depends on what you are going to use the bag for. If it is for work, I would keep it. If its for lunch and running errands then it could get quite heavy after carrying it around for a few hours and you could end up getting a stress injury to your wrists.

    You are 5'7" so I think you can easily pull it off but at the end of the day, you should be happy and comfortable carrying this bag. Kristin Cavillari is 5'2" and she has a 40 and looks fabulous carrying it. But I would imagine she can't carry it for long without feeling pained.
  2. I am a very petit woman, even 35 is too large my husband said like I carrying a luggage.LOL. I ended up carrying HAC 32 and Birkin 30.
  3. I agree that Kristin rocks that 40 and owns it. The bag doesn't wear her.
  4. congrats!!! I think she is a beauty!

    I have a 40cm kelly in BE that I truly love because of the color, and I am 5'7" with big built, I can definitely pull off the bag. It is really how comfortable you feel when carrying the bag, it should be you carry the bag, not the other way around.

    Please share some mod pics with us, we can then have better idea how the bag looks on you.

  13. I am fairly sure I will be in the minority, but you asked for an opinion.

  14. If it doesn’t excite you, than don’t buy the bag. Other offers will come sooner or later.
    Sometimes SA show other bags and tempt you. If this is not the bag you want IMO don’t buy it.
  15. I couldn’t agree more.
