I’ve been on and off looking for a large-ish black bag. Something structured, plain and big enough for the Nikon.  I’ve not worn boxy big bags much (I live in the little Coach ones) so I’m testing out how I get on. It reminds me a Celine but it’s not which I prefer.

So far it gets the job done.  Just hoping the theory of big bags makes you load them up more doesn’t kick in.

    I like the bag but I totally understand the worry of filling it to the brim with nonsense! I’ve been in the market for something bigger and more structured…Need Supply has some pretty sweet choices!

      Oh really that’s good to know. So far I’ve not caved into filling with crap but it’s been so handy if I need to carry spare shoes or a cardigan or magazine!

      or a bowling ball….

    That bag is amazing! I personally prefer bigger bags because I don’t have rearrange my whole life to find something at the bottom of a teeny tiny one.

    I am SO loving the bag! I need to wear big bags just because my basics don’t fit in small bags but the shape and look of this bag is beautiful. I love the cream and brown one that pops up in the link to the shop. And only $99! SO tempted. But my husband would KILL me if yet another shopping item arrives for me in the mail. ACK! What to do?!?!?! 😉

    • Karen says:

      Ha your like me. I use so many little bags that I needed a big bag. Yea that brown one is a massive temptation isn’t it? they retailed for a lot more and were on shopbop for a while

    • Karen says:

      Thank you. Still getting used to it but I think it’ll work
