Yesterday I got the tiniest, most adorable micro bag from Tod’s, and since then, my mini obsession has gone off the charts. In that way, bags are like cats. Sure, you love them when they’re fully-grown, but they’re even cuter when they’re tiny enough to fit in the palm of your hand! Small totes are also a lot easier to handle than their hefty counterparts, and give you that push you need to pare down for summer. Do we really need three lip-glosses every time we leave the house? Well…maybe, but I’ll let you be the judge!
