Hi Ladies, I searched the threads and found some comparisons, but nothing that specifically addressed this issue. I recently purchased the larger GST in black with gold hardware. I love that bag, but how does it compare to the Maxi? I would mainly use these bags for work. To me it seems that the GST is a great everyday work bag and the maxi could be used for more formal business meetings? If anyone has both, could you please speak to this? Could you also please share the size differences in terms of what they hold? I would reeeeeeally appreciate it! I love hours away from the nearest store so I always rely on your advice for purchases. Thanks so much ladies! You all rock!
