If you are a handbag fanatic like me, then you know that the mini bag trend has become a handbag staple over the last two years. Every major designer has come out with a mini bag and a lot of people are asking, “They are adorable but what can you actually put in it!?” Surprisingly, you can fit a lot. You just have to know how to organize it.
My mini bag is by Prada and was a Christmas gift from my boyfriend (Amazing gift right!?!?). I love this mini bag because it has two zipped pockets and the main compartment is open. It also has a detachable cross body strap which we all know makes any bag a winner.
I like to keep all of the beauty items together in one of the zipped pockets so they don’t fall out. Although, depending on the powder I bring I have to put it in the open center section because of size. Also, I like to use a lipgloss that doubles as a blush like this YSL one! Then, I put the headphones, key fob, bandaids, gum, and pen in the second zipped pocket! For my wallet, I want it to be easily accessible in the open part but, don’t want someone to steal it. My solution? Use a card pouch that clips into your bag! I use a Louis Vuitton one that I absolutely love. Clip the wallet onto one of the bag loops and the phone just sits loose in the bag. Let’s be real though….it’s usually in my hand!
Having a mini bag is an essential in my opinion. They fit everything you need and don’t weigh you down throughout the day!
