The question is more or less rhetorical but I keep reading other posts where people say the jumbo flap is too "blingy" for every day/daytime use and then others say, "Well it's too big for evening." Uh, when exactly are you supposed to carry the bag then?! My thought is, it is a bag that I love that I paid good money for. I will wear it with what I feel looks great and when I want to wear it. I wouldn't wear it out to a cocktail/black tie event but I just about everything else is fair game. Any thoughts on this?
