I just personally can not stand an otherwise "casual" bag being done up in evening/formal materials. Its like, a cool girl will just wear her day bag at night, she doesn't need it to be made acceptable by doing it in satin.

Bettina's are on sale at Barneys for half price. Not bad but I'm still not 100% certain I need one in my collection.

I am so annoyed with the quality in the bag, the hardware on the side has really started to show rust.. I don't know if rust is the right word but it's almost like copper, some threads have come undone on the handles, and the leather is not looking as firm as it was when bought, a bit too slouchy for the shape now.

Don't get me wrong I really adore the style, but I don't think I will buy anymore Givenchy bags when they are obviously not made to last! I'm thinking of just getting a Chanel classic flap next.

Just saw this and I want to add that the lamb leather Chanel flap is very fragile (just saw an aged one yesterday and it looked disgusting...). The calf leather will last longer.

Caffeine, thanks so much when you say calf leather I assume you mean the caviar one? That is what I'm debating as it seems more casual as well.

There are pictures of the large one in the beginning of the thread.

The new ones on barneys.com are 13" x 14" x 6". 5" handle drop.
I think that makes them the medium size.
