I'm 5' 1 and just about to pull the trigger on this one in the medium. I love a big bag. My problem is the shoulder strap looks odd and the handle drop is small. I have a Gucci with bamboo handles, the bag is not heavy, however after I fill it, you can not carry it on the crook of you arm. My husband ends up carrying my bag. Now getting back to my point, the bag is heavy, carrying a full bag on the crook of your arm might be uncomfortable. Just throwing that out there FYI. This is the reason why I bought the Celine Trifold. But my heart still wants this bag. Try it on, the small is really adorable and there are more options, the small pin studs, the stitching, color blocking. Oh, but I so love the medium.
