Big Bags Be Gone
The title pretty much says it all. Bags that can hold the kitchen sink and all of your worldly possesions, with handles to fit your wrist are going OUT for fall. In comes the clutch sized bag with a slender strap. You can wear this style two ways; over your shoulder like your other bags, or like a messenger bag. Personally, I think it's kind of cute. But I do think that the fashion world needs to find a better balance concerning bags. I mean, last season the "it" bag was MASSIVE with teeny little handles One season later, it's big enough for your wallet and lipgloss, but not for your cellphone and iPod too. However, with this smaller style, the strap is big with convenience. If you go out for a formal evening, you can carry that instead of a clutch and have an extra hand free. In the picture above, I love the purple Balenciaga bag, and the glittering Chanel.
What do you guys think of this style? Too old lady looking, or fresh and re-invented? Let me know!
