Meow could you maybe take a pic of what your hobo looks like on your arm?


Oh.. and I have another question... is the bag on Cacee.. that's the medium, right?

I think I saw a girl on the subway with the large AB bag... and it looked huge on her... but I huge bags... so I'm really torn.. the only thing keeping me from definitely wanting to get the large is the price... I'm moving into a new apartment and my budget is a bit tight.

i already sent it back but the one on cacee is definitely the medium size. it just felt like a smallish shoulder bag to me... if you want that hobo-ish look and use out of it, then i'd really recommend the large size. if you look at andreabrueckner.com (I think that's the address) there's a pic of lindsay lohan carrying the large size and i like the way she's wearing it much better. when you put things in the medium and it "slouches" it gets really tiny and feels quite small and narrow.
i contacted andrea brueckner personally and she confirmed that the ones lindsay lohan carries is the large size and the one jessica's assistant carries is def a medium.

I tried on the large of a gf's and liked the size (and I'm short). it's so slouchy, I don't think it's too big at all. perhaps if you filled it to maximum capacity it might be.

I think it really depends how much you plan on carrying in it and what you'd use it for. I plan on using mine as an everday bag that I can easily take everywhere, and I don't usually carry too much (just a wallet, keys, phone, small agenda/notebook, and a makeup case with a pen, comb and chapstick in it, and sometimes an extra sweater), so I went with the medium. That way I can take it out with me at night AND use it during the day. But for a person who prefers the look of very large bags and/or carries more stuff, or wants to put bigger things like notebooks or clothes in it, the large is the thing. I think both the medium and the large are great looking (the small is too small for the style though, IMO), they actually aren't hugely different sizes anyway.

Ugh.. I'm torn. Sometimes I'm totally fine.. and other days I need more room in my bag.

but I don't want tooooo huge of a bag that will look ridiculous if I end up carrying it at night.

Hm. but meowmix has me worried about this zipper dilemma.

Three views of LL carrying it. If only the medium was a tiny bit larger... I dunno.. I need to see this thing in person again.

It looks a lot different in the one where she's wearing the houndstooth coat...

Nessalee is out of the bag last time I checked, but they have it on activeendeavors and there are always 20% coupons flouting around for them as well. Becuase there is really not much diffrence in the size, but there is a larger diffrence in the price (for me at least), I went for the medium. I'm also torn, I dont think I would ever make up my mind without actually trying them on, but I'm sure I would love both bags

Yeah, I agree with Guessgirl, definitely try them on if at all possible. I was pretty sure I wanted medium, but after trying them on I found that the tan color looked much better on my blonde, pale complexion than the brown color I originally wanted.

The coupon I used had an end date listed in 2007 on reesycakes, so it doesn't seem like it's ending anytime soon. There were other coupons too, so I'm pretty sure that even if you wait a while you'll still get the 20% off.

Haha.. the only way I can justify buying another bag is if I sell off some of the bags sitting in my closet... Yay for ebay lol
