During the current credit crunch even handbags are being downsized. We may not have as much 'fun money' to carry around these days, but there is no reason not to be stylish while we suffer through this economic crisis.

No one wants to flaunt their affluence with a huge bag stuffed full of every luxury under the sun. These days, chic delicate clutches that are just big enough to hold the necessities are becoming a stylish fashion ‘understatement.’ Fanny packs and bum-bags have also been making a comeback, and are much more hip than when they were designed years ago for travelers.

I guarantee if you look through this collection of fashionable mini-bags, there will be more than one that catches your eye. Stats for 25 Mini-Purses Trending: Older & Warm
