Love this bag!I have a great smallish (12inches x 10inches) Dolce and Gabbana satchel. It's pebbled leather and has really started to softn in the few months that I've had it. I love to carry it when I can't be bothered carrying loads of things. But sometimes I miss the thick crime novel that seems to be habitually in my bigger bags. So I have to keep asking myself, 'Do you really need a thick crime novel in your bag every time you leave the house?
I'm short, and I totally agree about the big bags feeling like luggage. They're just not comfortable for me for everyday use, so I prefer small bags. Sometimes I will love the shape of a bag, or think that the leather is gorgeous, but if it's too big, I have to pass it up.I'm quite small and it's such a struggle finding small bags. I don't mind bags that are deep but must they be so wide? When a bag is more than 15" across, it just feels like luggage to me. Everybody loves a bag that's functional but a bag's too wide, it's just not elegant. So rock your small bag!
