    If you want this bag in particular, I think you can order it from the BCBG site. They come in plenty of colors.

    Canvas - $224 and $298

    i agree but a lot of people who have 9-5 jobs like them...even magazine editors...they are everywhere...i suggested some others as well since i don't know your preferences...

    Well the Wall Street Journal did a HUGE article on the designer tote bag and how it is outselling handbags. I will have to find the article (WSJ only by subscitption). I love and carry my red Goyard tote bag everywhere :flower:

    You have some great suggestions from this board but for a less expensive option, there's the company that is known for tote bags, the venerable LL Bean. The WSJ said that their cognac color leather tote is the company's best selling product and it's only $99. I like their Town leather totes. Check out their site below

    when is a large tote too large for the wearer? can a petite women carry off a large tote and not look like she is lugging around a piece of luggage? I think that if it is a simple plain one it might be OK but not sure if the proportions will look silly. so how big is too big for a large bag and small person?

    of course I'm asking because I just got a Margiela black tote that is 15 x 18 inches and I'm only 5'2" but I may not be able to part with it because its such an awesome bag but its going to be an everyday handbag for me and only a quarter filled with my stuff...:ninja:

    i'm 5'4", 40 kg and i carry large tote like balenciaga weekender, chanel original coco cabas for daily...
    i think petite women can carry huge tote best.

    but u have to consider the proportion of the big bag so it won't overwhelmed ur body
    for instance, i have boyish body, that is no boobs and no ***, so i don't go with too wide bags because they will make me thinner from the side, i prefer the one that goes longer because i have shorter torso and longer leg, a tall bag looks better on me IMO.

    and i also avoid sturdy structure large tote because it'll bulk on my skinny arm, i prefer the slouchy one so although it's big, it fits well on my body.

    thank you so much seahorseinstripe. you have no idea how helpful your post is. the wide and length dimensions to body type makes a lot of sense to me. I agree that structured isnt the way to go with a large tote, slouchy is more causal and and therefore looks less contrived.

    maybe I should post a picture of the bag on my shoulder to get opinions...
