small-bag conversion

Madewell Sloane mini satchel

I always carried the biggest purse. I think the habit started when I first had my son and had to tote a diaper bag. And I love the look of a big slouchy (or structured) bag. But my right shoulder didn't like it so much: your kids get older, but your body gets older too. And since it's been years since I had to bring diapers anywhere (hallelujah), I finally made the switch to a snappy little crossbody earlier this year. As part of my very pared down fall shopping list (gray jeans, check; tall gray suede boots, on their way; workout clothes, still needed), I'm thinking of adding to my collection with one of these.

Rebecca Minkoff Skylar mini
Furla Ginger mini
(love the ball chain, not the logo)
Clare Vivier Duffle Petit
(love this one most of all)

  1. I love this post! I am supposed to carry a small bag too as dictated by the dentist who first diagnosed my TMJ....apparently it puts too much stress on my upper body. Not that I evidenced by the fact that I carry a CV La Tropizenne every day ;) That said, I am fully obsessed with that mini duffel...if I win the lottery I'll buy us both one! xx
