A woman who collects emotional baggage over time. Wherever she is, so are her bags. Bags often contain the affects of betrayal, dishonesty, molestation, abortions, rejection, low-self esteem, etc. These are examples of baggage that often destroys relationships.
That bag lady needs some counseling. All of her marriages end in divorce because of her baggage.

Example 2:
Woman 1: I want to kick my friend's boyfriend in the shins because he's a douche-bag.
Woman 2: Don't be a bag-lady, she's choosing to stay with him.

Fat woman with nasty hair who waddles down any street that is in poor condition. Frequently says "sha-na-na-na" during her travels.
I was trying to go home last night but I was spotted by a bag lady who wouldn't stop singing to me so I figured I'd sing along. We wound up sitting around, discussing the heart that makes bricks go 'round the animals from the moon at night...or something. I don't exactly remember. You'd have to ask her.
