So I’ve done it again! Pretty sure you’ve done it too… Bought the unbelievably cute, tiny handbag for my imaginary lifestyle.
My own unbelievably cute, tiny bags, can usually just about take: keys, Oyster (travel) card, wallet and iPhone. If I am really clever with the packing, lipstick and hairbrush too. Which is fine because how much do I really need to carry around London?
It is a confession I have to make, I love small bags. They look elegant and smart so practicality be damned! Learn to live with less and we can save on the shoulder injuries.
Choosing a secondary bag
For those days when We need to carry the kitchen sink, files, proposals, umbrellas, cat food… As a last resort, when other editing has failed, I carry a secondary tote.
#This can be anything from the organic cotton shopper, a neutral le pliage, or even a full scale back pack. Why not after all? Just keep it clean & neat.
# Keep the secondary bag, neutral so there is no logo clash overload. (Quelle horreur!)
#Choose with care so it doesn’t look too Matchy-matchy. This kind of insane detail needs to look accidental, allowing the primary tiny bag to be the star of the show.
those ridiculously impractical tiny bags- I simply love them and have trained myself to carry them…
Enjoy accessorising everyone!
