Impracticality has never served as a deterrent where style is concerned for those who live and breathe fashion. And dainty micro and mini handbags are, without a doubt, no exception. While some predicted teeny-tiny handbags would be a short-lived trend in the fashion world, these joyful little accessories are here to stay.
Even though some ultra-micro bags are unlikely to fit much more than your favourite lipstick and a credit card inside, there’s something liberating about downsizing your arm candy. Just imagine leaving your smartphone–gasp!–at home for an evening or being able to locate your car keys without having to plunge your hand into a sea of lipsticks, receipts and related paraphernalia.
So, if you’ve mustered up the courage to part with your everything-but-the-kitchen-sink-sized tote bag, these pint-sized beauties are the perfect way to dip your toes in the water and have fun with this playful trend.
