Is Jessica Simpson's New Bag Too Big?

03/20/2007 at 05:00 AM ET


Back from a Roman Holiday with boyfriend John Mayer, the Blonde Ambition star showed off another new very yellow and very big Miu Miu bag. The buffalo leather tote, $940, at select Barney’s stores, seems a bit large for dinner. We love the color, called “mimosa” in Italian, but think Jess should try a roomy clutch for a date. What do you think? Is Jess’s new bag too big?

Looks like Jessica is having a hard time with her huge purse!

Too big. Might I just add Jessica and John are the perfect couple because they both make the most god awful ugliest faces when they sing.

The bag looks like baby diarrhea, so it suits her just fine. The bag is probably filled with money to pay John Mayer to date her.

i love big bags, and i like this one. however, i find it funny that some people on this blog think that if you don’t like it, it must mean you’re jealous b/c you can’t have it.

So…now all short people have to carry small bags? Thanks. I didn’t know that those of us that are vertically challenged had to carry small bags. I’ll make sure all of mine are small. Geez, you critics don’t know when to let up! Relax, it’s just her bag! Who cares what size it is? She is the one that has to lug it around.

I think that bag is way too big for her. Look at her, she looks as though she is struggling with it. She is too cute to be hiding behind that bag!

Maybe she is going or coming from workout and that’s really her workout bag plus purse.

Wow, can Jessica do anything right? When she’s tan, you say she’s too orange. When she’s not tan, you say she’s too white. When she’s blonde, you say she’s fake. When she’s brunette, you say she looks awful. Look at the photo: Jessica’s wearing jeans. That should tell you the dinner isn’t formal enough to require a clutch. Plus, some ladies are busy! I carry a big bag, too (in a Cognac shade) because I have a lot of stuff that I need to have with me. I don’t have time to fool around with a tiny purse, let alone a clutch that you can’t even throw over your shoulder. I’m petite, too. As Michael Kors says: “Petite women can carry big accessories as long as they have big personalities.” Makes sense to me! Simply because a girl is petite doesn’t mean she can’t carry an oversized handbag. I’m guessing this was taken by surprise and with a flash, so that likely distorted Jessica’s skintone and the bag’s color. Plus her hair fades into the dark background and washes her out. The angle makes the bag seem bigger. I really do think she is lovely, though. And I’m glad she carries what she wants and wears what she wants. Too many people think grandma’s antiquated fashion rules still apply.

Okay so I love……. big bags (believe me!), but I do think that this may have been a bit much for a night out with her sweetie! Nevertheless I love the bag!!!!
