i don't find much use for big bags, i usually find my self running around thinking of what to put in them, so i don't feel wasteful, or silly (carrying my sunglasses, phone, makeup + wallet around in a big huge bag). + if i just reserve them for days when i NEED a big bag, they tend to get very little use... that said, i was thinking of buying the baby gisele, i loved the style or the regular, so i thought this would be a perfect for me, but it just doesn't look the same. it does look a tad tacky + i just couldn't see myself carrying it. that + the fact that i wanted the white, if i was going to buy it + it was smooth leather (which i didn't like...) as opposed to the pebbled leather that the pink one was in, which i would've preferred.....turned me off of the baby. i'm glad i got to see them in person though.... it made me realise a gisele bag (no matter what size, and no matter how lovely) is not for me. the regular sized one is gorgeous. if you need a big bag (or can use a bigger bag), i say go for that one.
