Autumn/Winter 08 has shown a huge amount of tiny bags donning the model hands of the catwalks, some so small they practically can't even be classed as purses.

What could you fit in these? A lipstick? A few coins? A pen?
Don't get me wrong as a young, un-employed (well... i don't need a bag for my *ahem* 'employment') girl, i should be more than satisfied with the small, lightweight and attractive offerings from three of my favourite accesory labels. They're light weight- no shooting back pain, they force you to cut down on baggage- helps you keep organised, they're adorable- a major cause of my bag obsession. But somehow, i can't make myself like them.
I could say i don't know why this is, but since i emptied out my bag after a shopping trip, i can kind of see why...
From left to right: ipod, i-D, empty water bottle, glasses, purse, bank book, lip balm, hairbands hairclip, necklace, mirror, change, train tickets and boots card, giant hairclip, vaseline, foundation, cheeky chimp moisture wipes, phone, change purse, random reciepts, mints, nail polish.
I can feel the inklings of a try-a-small-bag for a day experiment coming on...
