Bottega Veneta Mini Jodie Review

I wasn’t always planning on buying the Bottega Veneta Mini Jodie.  In fact, they’d become pretty commonplace I was seeing them all the time.  BUT, I couldn’t shake the idea of her.  The mini Jodie is so cute.  S0 transportable.  So easy when you want a mini bag!  Once I saw it in the grey suede, I was hooked.  I have zero gray bags and it’s a pretty easy neutral to wear.  

Bottega Veneta Mini Jodie Review

A few highlights:

Bottega Veneta is significantly cheaper in Europe right now.

I bought it in Amsterdam and the retail price was 1800 Euro and it was $2500 in the states.  The dollar was actually stronger when I bought it.  AND since I bought it, the prices have done up (in Europe).  I submitted the VAT refund and expect to get about $400ish back. All in all, I saved about $900 buying this in Europe vs. the States.  Worth noting, I didn’t claim it when I returned to the US.  

The bag is SMALL. 

I have an iPhone 13 ProMax, which is big.  I can fit the phone in there, but it’s tight.  A credit card, lipstick, and my keys is all I need and it fits…thank goodness.  Good thing she’s cute.

Trendy or timeless? 

Good question.  Probably a bit of both.  The bag is BV’s signature Intrecciato leather has been popular for decades–and this one is suede, which makes it even more special in my opinion.  Of course, I think the popularity of the mini Jodie will fade but I see myself carrying it for a long time and most likely holding onto it because it’s a little more classic than trendy.  They also said the Chanel boy bag was trendy but I bought myself one when I turned 30 and never regretted it–I still carry it constantly.

So all in all, no regrets on buying the Bottega Veneta Mini Jodie!  Any other questions I can answer?

Also, be sure to check out my review on the Goyard Anjou GM bag that I bought in London a few years ago.
