Look 10 lbs. Lighter, Carry a Big Bag








Not that Hollywood celebrities need the extra help, but it's a known fact that carrying a huge bag will automatically make you look 10 pounds lighter. The latest "IT" bag of the moment is the Yves Saint Laurent Muse bag. Of course, everyone wants the white one, it's the color of the season, that's why it's backordered at Neiman Marcus. Neiman's will even personalize the bag with your initials (limit of two letters), at no extra cost.






Like I said, there' s a wait for the white, but it is currently available in chocolate leather at Neiman Marcus. If you are open to other designs in the Muse, Bergdorf's got a nice collection in metallic leather, leopard print, and linen.

LOl, I did not know this trick! Thanks for the tip. But for me, I think if I had $1,200 to blow, I'd probably spend it on a few personal trainer sessions instead of a handbag.

Now...shoes on the other hand...

I wanna know what crap they're carrying in there. Five pairs of shades? Extra pairs of shoes to match the sidewalk? Extra wigs in case of coiffure malfunctions?

Take that, Birkin bag!

Sadaf, TJ Maxx has TONS of huge bags right now for $50 and under.

Ameet, lately I'm finding I can't find a bag big enough. I don't want to carry a diaper bag and my own anymore, so one big bag is what I like. I stuff it with wipes, diapers, pull-ups, extra pair of pants for son in case he pees his pants in public, my makeup bag, Listerine breath strips, wallet, keys, cell phone, hairbrush....I'll stop now.. I'm not done, but I'm started to sound scary!

I love TJ Max purses. I can't help myself from buying one everytime I go to that store.

If I carried a bag that big I would also carry about 20lbs of cr/stuff in it! I need to downsize my current bag as it hurts me.
Thanks for your help with the Slumber party... I've posted how it went.

I like the bag but $1200 is a mortgage payment! Even if I could afford it I'd probably feel too guilty to spend that much on a freakin purse.

i am so glad you posted this!! i always thought that when a fat girl carried a small bag that she was making herself look worse!!! makes the girl look even bigger if her purse is a little pouchette!! and i guess vice versa!! i carry the dooney "it" bag in a medium size.. not too big and not too small.. think it evens me out!! hehe!!
