I've always matched the size of my bags to the amount of stuff I need to carry. I like them to look full (enough room to add another couple of items) but not so stuffed I have to take anything out to reach the rest. Anyway, lately I've seen a lot of women carrying LV Speedy 35s with next to nothing in them (you can tell by the way the sides cave in), including a group of 4 or 5 women who all had that same look. I could understand this with a tote because they might be using it to carry files/books to and from work or school and it just happened to be empty at that time of day, or might be using it as a shopping bag. But I can't imagine stuffing your shopping into a Speedy - anyone else seen this phenomenon?
