I'm 5'9" and about 130 lbs...am looking to buy my first Bbag and am very excited!! After looking at tons of pics of from the picture post I just can't make up my mind whether I should get a First or a City. Does anyone have the exact measurements of each? I like the look of the proportions of the First but don't want to get something that looks too small for my size.

Thanks!!!!

The First won't look too small for your frame...my sister in law is the same as you and the First looks great on her.

The deciding factor (for me, at least) comes down to this: is this an evening bag or an everyday bag? If it's evening, you can easily do a First, which will hold plenty for a night out (wallet, cellphone, lip gloss, etc.). If it's day, you might want to move to the City size, which would also allow for a make-up kit, reading material, agenda, sweater, etc.

if you don't carry a lot of stuff, get the first definitely
you can carry a wallet, phone, checkbook, etc. It's such a great shape, feminine and useful
If you carry lots more, get the city.
I live in a place where I get in and out of the car, as opposed to carrying everything with me at all times, and the first is perfect
