This is a practical item. I love big, heavy statement bags as much as the next woman, but every tall woman I have ever met suffers from regular back pain. Don't make it worse by carrying a big, heavy bag with you everywhere you go. If you have to take a big bag to work, keep a small back inside your big bag to carry your wallet, ID and keys. This way if you have to run errands during the day, just grab the small bag and give your back a break.
