i know i'm late getting on the cabas wagon, but i just got the big one in black (from eBay), and boy is this bag large and in charge! I had gotten the smaller size initially, but it was too small for what i needed - a bag that i can bring to work with me with my gym clothes/sneakers/everyday stuff - fashionably, of course. the seller kindly took the smaller one bag and then sold me the larger one. does it look too huge on me in the pic? i'm only 5' 1" - am wearing heels here. i think it looks better carried low, on the crook of your arm than over your shoulder. i like how deep it is, but it feels too wide. i couldn't even sit on the subway on the way home tonight with it on my lap because it was piggishly protruding over onto my neighbors laps!! am i nuts to consider having it taken in on the sides? i have an amazing shoe guy that is like a surgeon and has done incredible work on all of my nice shoes. eek!
