Marvelous Mini Bags

A big theme of mine for 2011 is: less is more. I've uncluttered my cyber-life somewhat, and now it's on to my purse. I'm tired of my bag resembling Mary Poppins' magical satchel, so I'm switching over to a mini bag that's only big enough for my wallet, phone, keys and a tube of lip gloss. Here are three fashionable options that will help my cause: Cherry Soda Bag, Modcloth ($40, pictured). What is more girly or adorable than a big red bow? Minnie Mouse is totally jealous.

Main St. Mini, Fred Flare ($18). Looks can deceive! With two zipper compartments, this little bag holds more than you think it can.

Cooperative Pouch, Urban Outfitters ($38). This bag looks so appealing in turquoise that I'm willing to forgo my penchant for black accessories, which is sort of a big deal.

Suede and Leather Weave Bag, Asos ($45). A perfectly casual and pretty leather bag that comes in pink, tan or black. I love that it has the perfect amount of slouch when hanging from your shoulder.
