I've always in love with BV bag. My favorite style is belly venetta. I bought medium belly venetta in Fuchsia last year. At that time, I tried on large belly venetta and my first impression was that it was too big. However, when I has been possessing the medium belly venetta for a while, I found out that it was not "everyday bag" as I wanted to be. Now I want BV bag and I want it to be an everyday bag. Afraid that it was too big as my first impression, I did some research in tpf but I didn't find the exact thread that answer my question. I went for large anyway. I've got the bag today and I'm sooooooo happy that I want to share with all of you. I would like to make a clear size comparison for anyone who is in the same dilemma with me. What I'm carrying everyday. I can't carry less than these or else I will feel uncomfortable. Sometimes I want to carry a scarf, sunglasses or even a book. I loaded everything in my medium belly venetta. There's still some space left but not much. If I put sunglasses or an umbrella, which I can, the bag will be to stuffed. And when the bag is too stuffed, it will look awkward under my arm. However, I feel right buying fuchsia medium venetta. The outstanding color makes the bag look dressy. I think a small bag is dressier than a big bag. Sometimes I wear little black dress and fuchsia medium belly venetta for a nice dinner. I put the same stuff on large belly venetta. There is PLENTY of room left. I can put sunglasses along with an umbrella PLUS a scarf, no problem! The bag hangs perfectly under my arm. It IS big but when it loosely hangs under my arm, I don't feel that big anymore. Buying large belly venetta in ebano is also a right choice. The color is discreet and it goes with every outfit. Hope you enjoy my thread!
