Ok I need something bigger than the usual 19cm long or so purse as I have so much shite I need to carry about - I have tried paring down the stuff I need but it is no good I just have to embrace the chaos and find a purse fit for the job - My old Orla Kiely one is looking a big rough now and need a new one. MN can you help me?

I love my big Mulberry one ([[ this one) - has plenty of room for all my crap vital stuff I must carry about at all times (although I must confess I do have a separate card holder for rarely used but still useful cards like Ikea one).

Do you mean purse or bag?

Oh god how I want mulberry.....

I cannot see how long they are - I want a great big thing, are they the same size as a large orla keily one? that kind if standard long purse size? I want bigger than that almost filofaxish in proportion, could be a clutch bag size

Ok, sorry- the reference to carrying around loads of stuff had me confused.

How about this

I'm not at home so don't have a tape measure with me but will measure when I get home! Can't picture the OK one to compare. Ah, have just seen website says:

Height: 9.5cm
Width: 18.5cm
Depth: 2cm

So sadly not bigger than 19cm, sorry! It is roomy, though...

How about this? I've got a similar one and you can get tons in it.

Sherlock I love that fossil design but it is not big enough - really pretty though

You see I already have a large Orla purse and always it is never ever big enough........... (am grossly disorganised)

Cardoon - I will be giving them a call, that is just what I had in my head you clever thing.
