^ post pics of the marni!

You can see a suitcase in the mary kate pic so it's safe to assume she's at the airport and thats just a carry on.

guess - you are right I saw a set of that picture. She definately was travelling to some where. The other pictures I saw show more details and her friends also carry their ruggages.

Yay. I like being able to carry a lot of things around and I don't like the look of a stuffed bag.

i also carry around a bigger bag everyday for utilitarian purposes, but there's a difference between a big bag and an oversized bag...

the bag i carry everyday is usually the size of a balenciaga city (15x10) or marc jacobs stella (17x12), or something similar...
unless i'm carrying my laptop...
both of these bags could be considered "big"...

something like the balenciaga work (13x18) or the oversized muse (13x17) also seem fine...
again "big" but not "huge"...

i think carrying a bag the size of the weekender (15x21) can be overpowering on some people...
if you're short and thin, the bag will definitely overwhelm you if it's full of stuff...
that's when i think things get ridiculous...

i definitely am into oversize bags vs a big bag. it has to be oversize to not look "boring" for lack of a better word. a big bag looks and is "useful", an oversize bag is somewhat there just for the aesthetic of it. but i agree with Melisande, i hate fishing around for things too. oversize bags should come with their own flashlights. i'm working on that...

^no way guessgirl!! that's too funny! i just end up buying obnoxious colored wallets to find in my bigger bags.. have to say in general that i'm a big bag girl as well even though i tend not to have that much with me (wallet, cosmetic bag, cell, pda).. i just like the thought of being able to throw whatever i need in my bag and not having to worry about fitting it all in..

Here it is

https://www.asseenontvnetwork.com/vc...anizer/180906/

It comes with an organizer, but personally I think the organizer would get in the way more than help.

Well, I certainly prefer a large bag to a small or even medium sized bag, because of what I carry on a day-to-day basis. My usual work bag is a MJ Stella, which is a nice large tote, but not ridiculously large.

I saw a gorgeous, although a bit eurotrashy, huge miumiu bag today in black leather with gold harware... I figured I could use it as a gym bag or something, but since you're not allowed hand baggage on US bound flights atm I resisted. I don't really like the idea of buying a bag I can't see or use for a month...

i totally agree ...
and i think that if you are 5'8" or taller...
then this would never apply to you...as proportionally you would always look better with a bigger bag which would suit your frame...
