I have been debating for quite some time to either get the small version or the medium version of this Luxury Tote. If there was something in-between the small and medium size, it would have been a done deal for me a long time ago. But, in the end I decided to go big, but when it arrived today, I realized it is just TOO BIG to be an every day bag for me (I'm only 5'2). With a shorter strap drop and less bulk (it really is 7+ inches deep), it might have worked. Even though the bag is soft enough to "cinch" on the sides, just like the LV Neverfull, which I love the look of -- it's just too large. I own two other Rioni's and one wallet (with another wallet on the way) and cannot tell you how beautiful this handbag line is. I also own an original LV Speedy 25 and the Rioni materials are just as high-end, but the Rioni's have the pockets and "extras" us busy women need, that the LV's don't provide in all their bags. The line is simply gorgeous! If you need a tote to bring things back and forth to work or to use as a stylish diaper bag, this will work. But, if you're looking for an every day handbag (like I was) and are petite, you might want to consider something else. Just to note, too, this bag doesn't have the "gold" satin lining that my other Rioni's have, it has a dark brown satin that matches the color of the outside of the bag and I like the dark brown better. The magnets are really strong and covered to look very high end. It's a stunning bag, but going back for another try at another bag that fits me better.
