well- it's official...

teen vogue's amy astley says that the key to pulling off the layered (grunge) look for fall is balance and that once you've piled on the layers you need a "big big bag" to pull it off!!...


...

i cannot wait to see what fall is going to look like on the street...
tons of teens trying to pull off marc jacobs runway looks...oh dear!...

yes, that could be quite the travesty. i dont think this layering trend is friendly to the trendy inclined. it is definately something you have to think about in the styling process, rather than being able to just go out and buy into the trend.

for me in the meantime, im knitting big marc jacobs-like hats! they're my favorite thing off of his fall runways!!!

ditto to that-

I'm 5ft 11 and have a penchant for heels-

I love being tall- but tiny bags look ludicrous on me.
Even for evening- I try to find the absolutely hugest clutch I possibly can

i'm sure our lovely statuesque members are going to rock this trend though... i think a big bag with jeans, boots and a chunky sweater is a pretty fabulous look actually... thing is...i don't even wear jeans......

^you're right....i would look ridiculous with a small bag because of my height. my sister's are 6'0 and 6'2 and carry small bags, it makes them look awkward.

i too like the oversized bags - im like 5' 7" so im not that tall but big bags work nicely in terms of proportion - i never stuff them with a lot of things and keep them light - am looking into getting one for the fall.

It's a big nay for me ... I don't want Birkin elbow, for one ... don't like the look, for two ...

Like SUVs, there are people and purposes that really do need the capacity (you could use a lot of these as a diaper bag, for example ), but in general ... if you need a huge bag, half the time what you really need is to get organized.
