Am just about to order one of these bags and wanted to check if they are as stunning in real life as they appear on the website. If you have one could you let me know - Is the purple colour on the website a good reflection of the actual colour ? Also is the large bag huge and should I consider the medium. The bag will be an everyday mummy bag ( may double as a baby bag ) . I know some people have mentioned the strap not being very long but I am only 5'3 so it should be ok.
Have to say their customer service has left me seriously impressed. I emailed them yesterday to query an international delivery charge that came up at the checkout. They replied back straight away, went away and came back to me later with an alternative option for the delivery which was almost half the original cost. The second mail came in at 7.30pm last night. Superb service I think...
it is big, but it carrys all my stuff for a day out with the kids, nappies/wipes etc, plus has a small zip pocket for keys/makeup. It also fits my laptop in it when I need it too, which I thought the smaller one wouldn't. The shoulder strap is plenty big enough, but to be honest I use the long strap across the body so i'm hands free.
The colour of mine was spot on when it came, so I can only assume the purple will be the same??
I also used it yesterday to go to a spa day and packed my swimmies/washbag in it - I lurve it!
I bought the Evelina in Pino Green in medium -- in the summer. It is a smallish medium everyday bag - great for carrying normal stuff - but not so sure if you have a baby and all that goes with it.! The strap is long when fully entended. Great bags!!
