I love big bags-I even wear a big bag in the evening. I'll never understand how women fit a wallet, makeup bag, hair brush, cell phone, keys, sunglasses, and business card case in a little tiny clutch.

big bags are so lovely! the only one complaining is my back! ouch! have a great day, darling! xo

Dani @ Weddings Fresh said...

I love big bags--such an indulgence but i love them!

O'Style said...

Bigs bags! Awsome! That is so useful, I hate the smallest, you can't put anything in.

I love the post as always!

mwwass!

maryjanecarney said...

I'm loving the Rebecca Minkoff Nikki Hobo! Too adorable!

Jaime said...

Love big bags...I have so much stuff! Like the purple Rebecca Minkoff.

Belle de Ville said...

Am I the only one who is getting tired of this trend.

alexkeller said...

just call me bag lady :)

Jacqueline said...

wow, some of these bags look like they are going to knock the models down. reminds me of carrying around my backpack in high school with every single textbook in it, thought i was going to fall over.

Aly said...

Hi Carrie..Im new to the fashion blog world just started my own but I love yours. That Marc by MJ large pink tote, I own tht already, great Bag! :)))

Erika said...

I worship big bags. Specifically that Macchiato Handbag from Lulu's. Gorgeous! :)

Tights Lover said...

I like the Bottega Veneta. They have some really nice styles.

Sher said...

No matter what size bag is in style I always opt for the large ones. It's just my lifestyle so far. I not only carry my own stuff, but my kids stuff too.

Chessa! said...

I am obsessed with big bags. I just love that they fit everything and that I don't have to stuff everything into a tiny bag. I carry my camera every where so this is key for me! I love all of the options this season and lately I'm obsessed with suede so I'm loving these options.

xtinagirl said...

Bags galore! I love it :)

I'm crazy for large bags...I know that I'm going to have back problems one day, but I love them!

Wanderlusting said...

Loooove big bags! I carry too much stuff to downsize. Not too sure about the huge clutches though - it's like carrying around a baby!

LENORENEVERMORE said...

Fabulousss...
make our hips look smaller for sure darling! ~xo*

Tea For Two said...

I'm in love with 'Mary Poppins' bags as I like to call them. The kind of bags you can get your life into twice. They're amazing. When I'm quickly packing, just throwing things in, I can never believe how one of those babies just NEVER gets full. :D I particularly like the one at the end of your picture collection, that looks like a briefcase. Also the brown one that seems speckled with little holes. Very autumn.

Style Crusader said...

Im not really a big bag girl, more like medium size.. i do have my big dvf one though that i've been using all summer. it really depends on the situation.. at night, never!

Tawney--A Chichi Life said...

Big bags always seem to be a great choice. They're practical and chic. I love the Stella McCartney and Balenciaga bags you posted.

Leah said...

Now we're talking... I totally adore big huge bags. I love every bag that you featured. Drooling right now.

Tracy-Girl said...

LOVE these big babies!! :) You could just use that for traveling. You can keep so many treasures in them!

Dream Sequins said...

Guess big bags are due for a comeback! Remember when everyone used to carry those ridiculously heavy, large totes around and women were starting to get back problems from all the stuff they used to lug around in them? Even though I'm not a fan of their health consequences, I love the look of the oversized bag. So yeah, I'm going to look for something :)

Inty swetha said...

this is my second obsession!! the first bag is gorgeous!! loved it!

Fashionista said...

kpeach said...

Michael St. James said...

That Burberry croc tote is AMAZING!!!

Blair said...

I adore oversize bags--make me feel like Mary Poppins:) xx

meraldia said...

I adore over sized bags! They allow me to carry all my belongings!

Sam said...

Wow! I thought big bags were on their way out? I thought it was all going small! Clearly I've not got my finger on the fashion pulse! Anyway, I've got to say - lovely bags but especially the blue ones - I am in love with blue leather...!

Intrinsically Florrie said...

I am deffinitely one for big bags.
Though my muscles occasionally disagree with me and protest!
Eeeee! That pink Marc by Marc Jacobs tote is really gorgeous! I love it. =D

Crave said...

Can't go wrong with a big bag!! I always feel sorry for the people around me on the subway though when I carry mine!

Mo said...

the tweed blazer from the first shot is amazing!

♥Aubrey said...

I luv my mommy bag :) Mmmm that Proenza is FaB.u.LouS!!!

Make Do Style said...

I love a big bag - great selection as always x

E said...

*sigh* I love Matthew Williamson!!!

Stephanie said...

My theory on bags is the bigger the better. :) Sometimes my purses are so huge they look like a suitcase. haha

Minn4 said...

So so fabolous! Im truly in to those! Big bags are hot!
xoxxx

Taylor Sterling said...

great post!! I am such a big bag girl. I can't use small bags. These are all terrific choices11

The Townhouselady said...

I gotta have a big bag. I carry my world in them! I think for people who live in metropolitan cities this is particularly true. We don't have a car runk to stash stuff in we have to carry it with us and there's no better way to do that than with a big chic bag.

AWESOME POST!

Mimi said...

gorgeous picks! i absolutely adore big bags!! guess cuz i'm the type of person who has something for everything in there. the most i've carried at school were three at the same time 4 all my stuff!

Sweety P said...

I love big bags with textures and patterns!

Tiffany said...

I keep on thinking i'm going to downsize my handbags but I can't help but love big bags!

This just made my day! sooo much eye-candy.

Something about that green bag speaks to me (although I am not totally loving the entirety of the look).
Also, those zebra shoes in the one pook are utterly Va-va-VOOM!

Jaensue said...

I ♥ oversized bags:)Ty for this fabulous post !

Michael said...

I love big bags, they're so chic and I can fit everything in them!

Brigadeiro said...

"I like big bags and I cannot lie,
You other sistas can't deny
That when a girl walks by
With a big bag in her hand...(etc.)"

Sorry for my Friday silliness, but I absolutely LOVE big bags!!! I'm now on the hunt for a big big one! :)

lamodedejuline said...

love love love oversized bags! <3

Gabbi said...

Such a fan of big bags!! MY fave tend to be the soft brown leather type but that Jerome Dreyfuss suede fuchsia number is gorgeous!!

Rachel Follett said...

I love my black leather bag and in fact I just shared it on Gathering Spriggs today.

Hunters Glory said...

;)

Keith said...

Those are some amazing bags. I love all of them. Hope you've had a great week. Enjoy your Friday and weekend. Cheers!

clarewbrown said...

Oh I am such a sucker for big bags! Though it is kind of awkward navigating the NYC subway system with a suitcase-disguised-as-a-purse hitting people and taking up the entire seat next to me.

kokostiletto said...

i only do big bags !

Sanity Fair said...

Loving the alligator - you can't go wrong with it! Yellow is the best color for this season, or a rich chocolate brown.

Midtown Girl said...

Love big bags!! You totally need one when you're running all over the city all the time (like me, lol!).

Kisses,
Amy

Tiffany said...

love the big bags!!! ahh!!

Elizabeth Marie said...

I am loving big clutches right now! Just a lil tricky when I go out, but they look so chic!

Juliet said...

Oh, I have an obsession about getting a big bag right now. I'd need one right now, sure I have others but in too spring-y colors or they're too heavy or something else is always wrong.

Carrie said...

zupu said...

I'm always looking for a new bag and now I really want like to find a great one. I would like to choose a cute and small size but usually I have to take a quite large one because I'm caring around too many things :) Great picks dear, have a lovely weekend!

Being a man I'll admit I do not know much bout bags, unless it is a moon bag. however, the legs of some of the models are something to write home about. Great post Carrie, the legs are great!
