In times of financial crisis, it’s all about going back to basics. For some, this may mean cutting luxury purchases out entirely, but for the fashionista, it means picking out only the bare essentials to fit into this season’s seriously tiny purses. 

Many designers seemed to have come up with their own version of the mini purse phenomenon, with only their small size and sturdy composition factors held in common across the industry. Each purse effectively becomes a rare and precious object, like a small jewel of sorts.

I love the small foliage handle on the bag by Christian Lacroix and the eye-catching leopard print of the Cavalli purse. These mini purses can definitely take you from day to night and will add that attention-grabbing detail to top off any outfit.
