I’m a “small bag” person. Given the choice between a carry-all which fits the largest make up bag in the world, and a miniature version of the carry-all, I’d pick the miniature version any day.
Of course, small bags mean that you’ve got a choice of either bringing your wallet, keys and phone or an umbrella, so a good weather app is absolutely essential. I use something called Weather+ (currently on sale for 99c), and it’s been known to predict rain to the hour.
Unfortunately, even my trusty weather app failed me this evening, and I found myself doing a mad dash through the rain and to the car with A Small Bag and No Umbrella.
Once I got home and dried off my bag, my shoes and then myself, I vowed to turn a new leaf and to choose that more practical carry all that can fit my wallet, keys, phone and umbrella. Maybe a bottle of water and a book. Perhaps even a change of clothes and some toiletries. Who knows what people normally bring in those big bags, I suppose the possibilities are endless.
After a short search, this Jil Sander Sporty Madame leather tote seemed to fit the bill. I do like the frame bag style, and the size is very… er, practical.
But then!! I saw these ridiculously cute miniature version of the Chloe Marcie and Paraty bags! How can an inanimate object be so cute?!
