I got this bag on sale and I was fully expecting that I would most likely return it because it would be too heavy with the chain. I don't really like heavy bags and carry very little. I tried the mini bag and it was too small if only it was about 2 inches longer it would have been perfect for me. But I've been eyeing their bags for a while and I wanted to try something in the more durable saffiano leather. While I love calfskin I prefer pebbled to smooth. Burgandy is one of my favorite colors so I decided to go for it. I was really surprised how much I liked it in person when I opened the box. I switched my stuff over right away which for me is the ultimate test. If I don't want to use a new bag right away it goes back. It is a bit heavier than I'm used too but not unbearably so. I just love how simple and elegant it looks. Here's a few mod pics ignore my mess between the holidays gifts/pre packing I have stuff everywhere. Also ignore my sock/shoe combo I'm try to stretch my glitter shoes out before I go to Vegas next week. I'm 5'3 size 12/14 if it helps anyone considering this style.
