dream wardrobe friday * mini crossbody bags

I've got that I need a new handbag itch and I'm trying to be really good and not scratch it!  A staple in my wardrobe is a small crossbody bag where I can carry all of my important things (ie wallet, phone, and house keys) with me at all times.  Having 2 kids I need to have both hands free and be able to run after a really quick 3 year old while lugging a 1 year old.  Carrying a small light bag on me means that I don't have to worry about my valuables getting stolen.  I usually keep all the baby/kids stuff (nappies, wipes, drinks, snacks, etc.) underneath the buggy and I'm not really that bothered about keeping my eye on them at all times.

There's a huge trend this season with mini crossbody handbags and I'm finding them just so irresistible. Here are some drool worthy bags and somebody needs to hide my credit cards before I get click happy!

Chanel Classic Small Flap Bag in Metallic Patent Calfskin - Classic bag in a mini size and shiny leather.

Balenciaga Metallic Mini City Gold - I'm seriously addicted to Balenciaga bags and own a few.  I love the distressed leather and they are practical and chic at the same time.  This mini in their icon City is just too adorable.

Celine Nano Luggage - Ugh it is sooooo impossible to get my hands on this bay!  It literally sells out as soon as it hits the shop floor and I barely make it out to the shops.  I love love love the Celine Luggage Tote but it is just so impractical for my lifestyle right now.  But I can totally swing this if I can only find one!

Chloe Marcie Small Saddle Bag - My sister and good friend use the bigger version of the bag all the time.  It is super durable and goes with almost anything.  

Givenchy Micro Nightingale Satchel - An ultimate fashionista bag in a mini size.

Proenza Schouler PS1 Pouch - I know I've written about this PS1 Pouch before but I absolutely love mine and although it looks small you can actually get a lot in there.

Chanel Classic Flap Bag in Patent Calfskin - If only I could have a Chanel flap and every colour and size.  You can never have enough Chanel in your life!  I love the more square shape which makes it a little bit more fun.

Balenciaga Giant 12 Silve Mini Pompon - I've always loved the bucket shape of the Pompon and it looks so much cuter mini sized.  

Mulberry Lily Shoulder Bag - A very versatile bag that can be dressed up or down.  Worn as a shoulder bag with the straps short or casual across the body.


  1. Can I be honest? While I do have a bag fetish I use my pockets the most! But then again I don't have kids...

  2. Lol! My pockets are usually filled with small toy trains and dirty tissues ;)
