Face Candy Fashion: Rebecca Minkoff Nikki Metallic Hobo

I'm going to start this post by admitting that I am small. I also have a tendency to imagine things that I see online in the sizes I WANT them to be, not actually the sizes they are. I'd been lemming Rebecca Minkoff's Nikki Metallic Hobo ($595) for a couple months and my hubby bought it for me for Christmas. I did not know that this purse was going to be so... big. Yes, it quotes the dimensions: 16"w x 14.5"H x 4"D, on the interwebz but alas, I took no note of them. This is a big bag. So big I could probably fit an extra change of clothes AND shoes AND all the other junk I cart around daily. In retrospect, I should have opted for the Rebecca Minkoff Mini Nikki Hobo, but oh well. Hindsight's 20/20. Overall I love the smooth gold Italian leather, the gorgeous gold hardware and the cute black and white lining. However, I feel the strap could have been a little longer. And price? Hm... I got mine on sale for under $300, but I will say that this is my last SEEN ONLINE purse I'll buy. If I haven't seen it in person, I'm not going to do it.
I've been burned in the past.
