I have recently purchased a Louis Vuitton Carryall bag to be used as my main day-to-day bag as well as a travel bag. The photos of my bag can be found here:http://picasaweb.google.com/Ben.Chav/MyFirstLVMonoBag I normally put newspaper, a book, an agenda, and a 15" MacBook Pro laptop inside the bag. The size is still a little large but holds up a lot of stuff. All I wanted to hear from you guys is: is it okay to carry around such a big bag around the city? Does anyone use similarly sized bag as city/work bag? I've seen lots of huge Hermes Birkin, Mulberry Piccadilly and huge Bally bags in the city but I guess they're quite different from my LV Carryall, lol. For your information: I am a guy, and the bag has no shoulder strap - it's my first hand-held only one.
