Holy OMG. I just received my new Maxi Mabel in Denim Antiqued Leather, and oh mi golly gosh she is big. Ginormous, even. Huge, humungous, enormous, voluminous, elephantine, gargantuan, colossal. Really rather large. :faint:

Now I love big bags, and I checked out the specs and decided I wanted a Maxi Mabel ages ago as I always tend towards GM anything, but even knowing her dimensions beforehand I got a shock when I saw the length of the box this baby came in. Big things come in big packages after all, and walking home yesterday carrying a box half a meter long I began to suspect my new beauty might be a little larger than anticipated.

This is me, 5'7" or 170cm, carrying my Yves Saint Laurent OVERSIZED Muse. Big bag, huh?



Well I'll see your big bag, and raise you a Maxi Mabel..:

SHE'S GINORMOUS!!!!! Ahh I had such fun taking these pics, I kept laughing at the sheer magnitude of her proportions - I've never had a bag this big! She looked ridiculous the first time I saw these pics but now that I've been playing around with them and uploading them all I'm starting to get my eye in for her and it's already looking half normal to me.

This will make the most fabulous travel bag. Delayed at the airport? No problems, sleep in the bag. Want to take home lots of souvineers? Easy - you can souvineer a whole Mediterranean island in this baby, with room for a leaning tower or two. Want a fabulous nappy / Mum bag? Just chuck the whole lot in there, baby'n'all, and leave that cumbersome stroller at home.

I can carry Holly, my 15" Powerbook in here without any problems.. in fact, I suspect I could fit a desktop pc in there too if I tried! :lol:





With other big bags of mine: YSL Medium Downtown, Miu Miu Spring Shopper, LV Saumur 35, and ye olde Roxanne, a Big Bag in it's day that's now looking positively sample sized.

You know.... most people carrying a small poodle in their bag. You could seriously fit AT LEAST a doberman.

Wooo! Congrats girl!

Have you got any nieces or nephews, friends with small children? You could play a fantastic game of hide-and-seek with them and get their parents all worried when you go to leave and the kids are still in your bag!!!!! :roflmfao:

Seriously though - WOW, that is one super big bag!!!!! Looks fab on you, tall and thin as you are! :tup: Have fun showing her off!

Hahhaaha, thanks everyone!!! Lolling @ hide'n'seek, but that means I end up leaving with the children.. right now I'm still more than happy to give the buggers back after each visit! :sweatdrop: Will definitely be checking Mabel for stowaways now! :shocked:

Thanks everyone for your lovely comments! Will have Mabel doing work duties when I'm back on shift from Wednesday, it'll be nice to have a bag that I can fit Holly into without any dramas. The best thing about her is that despite her size she's so light, and is the most comfy bag to carry on the shoulder with her slim width. Can't wait to head overseas someplace and use her as carryon, those front pockets would be perfect for passport and tickets, and there's room galore for magazines, books and a blanket to get me through the flight. :tup:
