Lots of you requested on Instagram to do a comparison review. Here are the measurements of both so you may see the difference in size:
Width: 7 1/2br>7 1/2br>Depth: 1 3/4br>1or 1 1/2stretched
Height: 5 1/4br>5br>Strap Drop: 23 1/4br>25/p>
I need to point out that the Ferragamo mini bag shouldn’t be a WOC meaning it does not have slots inside to act as a “wallet on chain It’s simply a crossbody that I plan to double as a clutch (strap tucked inside). The Chanel WOC is a wallet on chain/crossbody and can be utilized as a clutch.
PROS: I love the corda (beige) color. The Saffiano leather may be very nice and sturdy. I like that the width is a bit bigger than the Chanel so it will possibly hold a small coin purse (with credit cards and i.D.), cellphone and chap stick plus lipgloss/lipstick. With the WOC, there isn’t a need for a small coin purse since there are slots to carry your credit cards/license. The standard of the Ferragamo is extremely nice. It’s very well made and seems much more durable and not as fragile as my lambskin WOC.
As you may see, the additional 1 3/4length in the Chanel WOC allows me to wear it at the right length as a crossbody. It makes that big of a difference!
I am keen on the iconic grosgrain bow and in full disclosure, I probably had both sales and bow goggles on when making this purchase but don’t have any regrets 🙂
Basically in a nut shell, the sizes are very similar to one another. The differences I noticed was the interior (credit card slots vs. one big compartment), strap length and price point ($1,180 difference). I feel if you’re looking for a nice quality designer crossbody, this Ferragamo Miss Vara mini bag is a superb option. I used to be happy that I used to be in a position to make the most of the 20% off making it a total of $460. At the speed of Chanel prices, you will get three of these Ferragamo Miss Vara mini’s for the value of 1 Chanel WOC. Crazy right? Don’t get me wrong, I still love my Chanel but this very comparable and 1/3 of the associated fee.
