I don't think the vernis scratch so easily. I have the zippy pomme and throw it around -- it is quite scratch resistant. As for the stunning vernis alma, the downside is the huge base but I remember you are tall and can probably pull it off. Go with your heart ;)

thanks so much! so the guess I was wrong that vernis scratches easily my heart screams for the alma but then its the functionality issue I also have this thing that I have to get the most out of my money when buying a bag that is why I went for the trevi yesterday but evrytime I see the alma purple....I still like it...

if it loses color in heat and you are in a warm environment i would stay with the Trevi

i love my trevi but then i also plan on adding and amarante alma to my collection. i think they serve two completely different purposes but if i had to choose one i would choose my trevi hands down. it is so versitile can go from day to night, and look dressy or casual depending on your outfit. it is my go to bag

So far, my Vernis bags have held up very well. No scratches and no problem with heat-----just don't leave it directly in the sun.

If you are contemplating the Alma, it makes me think you're not totally in LVoe with your Trevi. Go for the Vernis Alma, it is a stunning and very functional bag!

The Vernis is beautiful and I want to vote for that BUT because of where you live and the heat/humidity, I think you should stick with the Trevi.

I vote for the bag that makes you have heart palpitations every time you see it. lol Go for the violette Alma MM --- it's a great-looking bag and this color is a one-shot deal. You can always get a Trevi later.
