After all, that nagging need to lug around every item you own in case of whatever imagined emergency might befall you is a habit that is hard to give up.

Let’s tackle the issue of stuff just to get it out of the way. Mini bags are actually the perfect size, in that they leave just enough space for you to stash your essential items. Reminding yourself of what the true definition of essential is will help you to put things in proper perspective. One of the most fabulous things about mini bags is how easily and stylishly they transition from day to night.

Choices are not a problem, as mini bags come in so many different styles, shapes, and colors, there is an option for everyone. And unlike their oversized sisters, they are elegant and ladylike thanks to their petite size. Seen on the runways of Chanel, Fendi, Miu Miu, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Tory Burch, Phillip Lim, Michael Kors, Kate Spade, Chloe, Stella McCartney and more -- there are different looks from each designer using the mini bag trend. Just so we can take a moment for a little flash back to the not particularly distant past we should let you know that Fendi has joined the craze and put out a micro baguette bag.
