small but terrible

I'm liking the little shoulder bags with the top handles. Why so cute? 

Postman's Lock leather shoulder bag by Mulberry in snake-effect camel. £858.67

Alexander McQueen Wicca tweed shoulder bag. £928.42

Alexander McQueen dark red Wicca Mini leather satchel. £713.78

My favorite mini is the blue (although it's listed as "violet") beauty which was popularized by international fashion sensation, Bryan Boy. To put it bluntly, it costs a fortune. But it is absolutely precious. This is one bag that I am dying to meet in person.

I don't know if I would ever wear a mini satchel, no matter how cute. I just have too much stuff to lug around, but if my camera fits, then it's a gow.

Having said that, I am intrigued by the super clean design of the Jil Sander clutch. And the color is very elegant.

I don't know how it happened, or when it happened, but I. Like. Bags. Here's some normal-sized ones that you can actually use to carry your junk...

If you covet the Lanvin Lovely Leopold as I do, Marc Jacobs released a similar but cheaper less expensive alternative.

I always have a Lanvin item in my bag posts. They're always so freaking expensive, but so enchanting. This one is detachable and can be worn multiple ways. The front becomes an over-sized clutch and the shoulder bag is also a tote.

I adore Alber Elbaz, doesn't everyone? He is completely delightful in the Lanvin Fall 2011 campaign movie, but um, models dancing? So awkward that it hurts a bit to watch, but the ending is so worth the pain.
