Metallic Edge City and I think I'm in L.O.V.E! I went to the opening of our new Neiman Marcus looking to see the Velo in person but they did not have one. I needed a bag that I could wear hands free (I have a toddler and a baby on the way) so the Velo seemed like the only option. It turns out the City strap is plenty long enough! (I am 5'6" for reference).

I warned my husband about Bal fever, I think I feel it!

That actually looks more like a velo to me? Would it be possible to see a pic of the back of the interior tag?

it's absolutely beautiful, congrats on your lovely new Bal! :heart:

i agree with the other post.. it doesn't look like a city but a velo. i didn't think the city came with a long strap unless things have changed.

So curious if this is actually a Velo. It was opening day at the store so maybe the SA was clueless (as am I).

I know you can get a long strap but I don't think the Cities are being sold with the long strap, please correct me if I'm wrong. But the shape of this bag looks to be a velo to me.

Edit yes, I just saw the tag back, that is the style code for a classic metal edged velo. Now I want one...:heart: it looks great on you!

So funny! I need to study my style codes before I buy again.

I have only had it a few hours but it's the perfect size bag for me.
