Colossal Carryalls You Can Fit Your Life In

Over the years I've upgraded from clutch, to hobo, to shoulder bag, to tote – and now, mega-oversized is in. Praise to the handbag heavens! With all the essential gizmos and gadgets we ladies need to keep on top of our busy schedules, it’s a wonder these super sacks weren't on the must-have list ages ago. Personally, I don't know what I would do without room in my bag for my phone, Blackberry, chargers for both, wallet, checkbook, sunglasses, reading glasses, cases for both, gloves, earmuffs, hat (hey – it's cold!), toothbrush and toothpaste, pens, several shades of lip gloss, concealer, blush, mascara, package of tissues, anti-bacterial gel, Mace, iPod, umbrella, laptop, powercord, several USB drives, map, book, workout clothes, keys, business cards, lunch, and heels for the office. Hey, a girl's gotta be prepared! 

Thankfully, designers took a hint from us ladies who are seen schlepping around two or more bags. The main accessory trend this winter and spring centers around these fabulous carryalls to keep us fashionable and organized.
