Most of the time I use big bags: I like them because I carry all my troubles my whole universe with me.
But you know, watching Bloodline (1979) where Audrey Hepburn highlights her grace with help of small bags (and costume designer Enrico Sabbatini of course, his work is the best thing in this dull movie) I realized that with my “carry all on my shoulders” accessories I look like a very material creature who almost forgot about her gentle feminine side.
I think we girls should time after time remind ourselves that our strength is weakness. And going for a walk carring only mirror and lipstick is good way to do it.
Modern fashion industry offers us a huge selection of small bags for any budget and style.
Henri Bendel‘s black Warren Street Micro Crossbody, Valextra‘s orange Twist Crossbody Clutch, Patricia Nash‘s Amatrice Mini Roll Bag Tooled Turquoise and Repetto‘s red Quadrille Oval Bag caught my short-sighted eye.
