One of the most important relationships in any woman’s life is that between her and her bag. Whether you actually own your dream bag or just day dream about owning it, the enduring love and partnership between you too is an unbreakable bond.
But unlike our desire for a bigger diamond, our bags have become smaller. Shown on the runways at Fendi, Chloé, and Céline, mini bags are now the carryall du jour—with the minor caveat being that they, of course, don’t carry very much at all.
After years of the Olsens popularizing bags bigger than most downtown apartments, the backlash against colossal totes comes as no surprise. We carry our lives around like pack mules so that inevitably, whatever we end up actually needing is perpetually trapped at the bottom of our bags. Earbuds are always tangled, lipgloss lids caked with crud, and sunglasses irreparably scratched. The solution? Streamline.
Whittle away all excessive paraphernalia down to the essential trifecta: keys, lipgloss, and phone. Besides, what could better embody glamour than a modern day minaudière? It evokes images of drivers in town cars, personal assistants, and an insouciant attitude that would never stoop to the likes of schlepping. So take the plunge and ditch the hefty handbags—we promise there’s nothing more liberating!
