ok cool - i'm so nervous as this will be the most ive spent on one bag - my LV was $775, my Silverado $680 ... is the twiggy big enough to put all your day to day in though?

It of course depends on what your Day to Day stuff consists of. I can carry a large overstuffed wallet, check book, make-up bag, cigarette case and lighter, pens, cell phone and more with room to spare. You could even fit a light sweater in it comfortably.

I used to have a twiggy and it fit all my daily stuff no problem. My only problem with it was that it was a handheld; the shoulder strap didn't work well for me. As a day bag I would take it shopping a lot and it was drive me nuts always holding it.

chloebagfreak - we will both need to change our names then (mine is for marc jacobs) ... i figure my silverado will be good for those days when my outfit is plain and needs some jazzing up. My twiggy can be for other work days.

Yes we definitely need to change our names. LOL! I almost got a Marc Jacobs, but I heard they are heavy and I don't need another heavy bag. Are they heavier than Chloe Paddingtons?
I bet that you will love your BBag so much you will wear it with everthing you can, or like I did you'll get another and another and on a list for another 08:yahoo:

Congrats on your first twiggy (first bbag?)! I have a twiggy too and it's soooo roomy. I can fit my long wallet, key pouch, lip balm, tissue, agenda, small water bottle and a light cardi in it with no problems, and even room to spare :biggrin:

The Twiggy is a fabulous handbag and you did a great job with the price! Congratulations!

They are deceptive in their size because they look smallish, but then they hold so very much. I often carry a rolled magazine in mine too!

I wish you well,

Bridget
