It looks fantastic on you both cross body and handheld, not overwhelming at all.
I have midnight blue silk snake Alexa in regular size and I am short too.
So I bring the strap to a cobbler's shop and have it shortened by 5 inches.
Now I really enjoy carrying it cross body and on the shoulder. Maybe you can try?
I think it looks fine but only you can decide.
My honest opinion is that it looks too big on you from the picture.
It looks better held in the hand than cross body.
Hope you make the right decision.
I think it looks nice worn both ways but particularly on the arm the colour is gorgeous!
Gorgeous bag! - and you rock it in crook of arm! - but I agree with the general consensus that it does look a little overwhelming when crossbody - but, as I think someone else pointed out - it looks more so with bare legs - and with super toned slender ones like that - the more so - but with jeans, longer skirts I think it would look fine - I have similar prob but am much taller, so I think that balances it out!! But I would keep - all said, it suits you well
Its gorgeous but it does look bigger than regular i have a few regular alexas and yours looks bigger
Wow why a beautiful bag... Congrats!!
SHe looks beautiful when held but agree cross body she looks a lot bigger, thought it was the o/s! have u tried her with jeans???
It looks great x
I've started a couple of threads revealing my regular Alexa and my mini Alexa, so check them out
How did you get on with jeans? The weather where you are sounds fab - here in the UK, it's been raining for what feels like every day of this year so far! :rain:
it won't work if you want to wear it cross-body, but if you want to try wearing it on the shoulder without actually altering the strap maybe try this:
I'm 5'8" but found the strap too long and am much happier using it this way - use the bag loads more now.
It looks great and classic!! Keep it!
Yes keep it as it looks great on you. It is definitely the regular and I personally don't think your height makes much difference which ever way you style.
Gorgeous bag but I do find it a little big on you crossbody. Looks great on your arm though!
I like the bag and i like it on your arm.It looks big on you crossbody when you are wearing summer clothes.I think it isn't so when you wear a cardigan or something.
