Large handbags are a no-no for me, and so are mini bags. I love a decent-sized clutch for both day and evening, and it has always worked best. But, mini bags are the coolest fashion accessory to make a style statement this summer. Pair a mini bag with a slip dress or a crop top, and you have a winner.
I have finally given in and got myself a mini bag. Even though a mini bag has little space, it can easily fit a few essentials that are needed on the go. It forces you to leave behind the dozens of unnecessary things you usually carry and enjoy a fun, minimalistic experience.
