I love the bag, but I'm only 5'3 and I think it would be too big for me too. At 15 1/2" in width I would be a little concerned. My suggestion would be to go for the smaller size in the same line.
I'm just five feet tall and I have the logo version of this - it's super lightweight and unless you are used to teeny tiny bags I just can't see you finding this too big at all - it's such a great bag and the color is TDF - I'd hate to see you miss out on it - I really think it's a great size. I'll try to find a mod pic of mine.
I have seen and held this bag in the store. Love the color and size too. I'm 5'1" and it looked fine on me. I found it on clearance at Macys in Oregon (sorry can't remember the marked down price on it). I didn't get it because I just purchased another orange bag. I did buy the matching zip around wallet and love it! It also look a little smaller than Crissy11's bag.
this bag is not heavy at all ... its light weight for sure.. There are few things crissy11 started that has this bag modeled but in the signature,, you'll get the idea of size and I have this bag modeled as well in signature.. mine is an outlet version and its a tad bigger. Crissy's in the macy's which is the same as this ...
