  1. Hi! I'm struggling to decide between the medium lily or small bayswater satchel - please help! Love both and am very torn. Welcome all thoughts :smile:
     
  2. Depends on what you want it for more? I would say the Lily is smarter; more suitable for evenings, weddings, parties etc... and the SBS a bit more casual...

    Personally, given the choice, I would have both :graucho:
     
  3. I wanted a small bays satchel initially but waited so long for the right colour and right price that I've lost interest.
    Got the Lily instead and I wonder why I waited so long. lol.
     
  4. I don't own an sbs but I do have two Lilly's. I'd go lily but the sbs holds more. Good luck deciding :biggrin:
     
  5. Very different bags., I don't own sbs but have four medium Lily's , guess which one I vote for !
     
  6. Depends what it will be used for, SBS is more of a small work bag for me, whereas medium lily can double up as a work bag and a bag when you need to be a bit smarter . The only thing you want to consider is the weight on the chain strap if going to fill it as I imagine it may start to cut into your shoulder if overfull
     
  7. +1 and chain straps can get hot too
     
  8. Same here one sbs which i have never used too impractical 5 medium lilies which i adore my fav bag
     
  9. Oh I wish having both was an option! :smile:
     
  10. That's a good endorsement for the lily! Thanks!
     
  11. Thank you! It's a tough choice but I'm leaning towards the lily!
     
  12. Ha! Your vote is obvious :smile: I do love the lily!
     
  13. Thanks for this perspective. :smile:
     
  14. You're right about chain straps potentially getting hot but I'm still leaning toward lily :smile:
     
  15. Thanks! The fact you've never even used your SBS says a lot. I'm convinced - it's the lily for me! I'm traveling to the UK soon and hope to bring a beautiful medium lily home with me :biggrin:
