When I saw this bag, I fell in love with it.
I started to talk myself out of it, saying it was too small…
Normally I tend to go for plain looking, black or tan, over-sized bags.
But a smaller bag, means carrying around less junk, that I really do not need.
I was sick of lugging around a huge handbag on my shoulder everywhere I go. I emptied out the contents of my old handbag, I realised that I don’t need four different lipsticks, a zillion-trillion receipts, a humongous bottle of perfume and other junk. (I think a chocolate bar wrapper made it in there and a pot of sweet and sour sauce from Mcdonalds, wow… definitely not necessities.
This bag is the perfect size for my essentials, not to mention it is so beautiful for going into Spring and Summer, look at the detail in the embroidery… I love that it can be used as a clutch, or a shoulder bag.
From now on, it’s just the one lipstick I promise! One mini-sized bottle of perfume, a nail file, my compact mirror, some chewing gum and instead of carrying around a huge purse that I really don’t need (I rarely carry cash on me!) I just use my small, slim-line Whistles card holder and of course my iPhone.Would you ever think about down-sizing and decluttering your day to day handbag?
My right shoulder is certainly grateful, that’s for sure.
Here’s hoping I can keep up just taking the bare essentials everyday, time will tell…
I am absolutely loving this embroidery floral trend from jeans, to jackets, to handbags.
What do you guys think of my new bag? I later realised it was limited edition so for £25 I just had to!
