Need advice... is the First/Classique really too small for me?

I am thinking of getting myself a First for evening use. I am 1m70 tall (I think that is 5 foot 7?) and as I have lost 10kg recently, it may suit me better than I remember. Trouble is that the store that sells Bbags here doesn't have a First in stock, so I can't try it on. I wear my black RH City and Raisin RH Work alot, so should I just get myself another city?What do you ladies think? A first is too small?

The first is a lot smaller than the city, but you can hold a decent amount in it. If you are just using it for an evening bag, I would imaging you would be ok. What do you carry with you in the evening?

This is my first:

I'm 5'3" and I find that the First looks too small on me, LOL! I don't carry much, so the capacity isn't the problem - but I find it looks really odd... it just doesn't have enough heft to it. But lots of gals here rocks their Firsts... so I guess it depends on the look you want? I don't like holding a tiny bag, unless it's a clutch.

Having said that, I love the FBF (which is slightly bigger than the newer Firsts)...

i don't think it's too small, especially not for a evening bag. i'm 178 and it doesn't look small on me, really... also i prefer the city for daily use, but for the evening or some more formal occassions it's the perfect bag!!!

The first can be such a cool style. If you don't carry much, it can be a very nice bag for everyday errands and evenings out.

^^ Agree, twiggy could be an option too!

But honestly I'm same height as you and first is great for evening, running errands, all sorts. No worries! What color? :graucho:

I'm 5 7" and have three firsts. It's my favourite style. I don't carry much, so for me it's perfect. With other bags I never have enough to put in them:smile:

I had one twiggy but not sure I like the shape. I love the way the City slouches, does the First slouch at all?
