    Is the nanushka worth the splurge compared to the brown one?? So tempting!! Also how oversized does it seem to run?

      VERY oversized! I’m wearing a Small and it overtakes my body But I like it because that’s the look.

      It’s hard to say what’s ‘worth the splurge’ because everyone is different, but my honest opinion is that the Nanushka is VERY pricey for fake leather. However, the quality is SO GOOD and it looks/feels just like buttery soft real leather.

      The Bagatelle one also comes in black, so I’d probably just get that one since it’s such a trendy piece. It’s a great alternative!

        Super helpful and I love both…but I think you are totally right that the bagatelle one may be the winner for such a trendy piece. Thanks so much!!
