I just purchased my first FOLEY AND CORINNA City Tote in Violet. LOVE the color so I couldn't resist! I've been looking for a purple bag for a while now and came across this one. Thanks to Beth1433 I got it at 30% off from WinkNYC.com, so it came out to $339. Do any of you ladies have this bag? Please let me know what you think of it, as I've never seen it IRL. TIA! :yahoo:

Did you purchase the city tote or the mini city? I am trying to decide on what size would work best for my frame. I am only 5 ft 2 and am concerned the city tote will be too big on me. If anyone has the mini city and is willing to post pics of them carrying the bag, it would be very helpful and greatly appreciated. Thanks

I love big bags so I got the city tote. It folds over when using the strap so it won't look too huge. I'm only 5'3'' and I carry bags around that size. Here are some modeling pics from Luna Boston's website. Hope this helps you make your decision.

Very pretty color indeed! I have a City Tote in a Metallic Bronze and I love how it holds everything and is sooo easy to carry. I get lots of compliments on it too. Be sure to post pics when it arrives!
Love that Metallic Bronze color! How's your bag holding up? I've read that the leather and lining are quite thin. I just fell in love with the purple color so I didn't even check tPF before making the purchase. But I'm so anxious for it to arrive!

Does this bag have a slight shimmer or glaze to it? You got a great deal on the bag!

The website didn't have much of a description but I think it's glazed leather. It really makes the purple pop so I don't mind. Hopefully it holds up as good as regular leather. I'm happy that I didn't have to pay full price for it even though it wasn't on sale. I just love the deals and steals on tPF!

Thanks so much H0neylyn. The pics were really helpful. I still think I am more of a mini city tote person, but am definately loving the purple and think I need to get one for myself!
