It's a season of minis! I am a pouch kind of girl, my bags mostly consists of separated mini pouches that carry thousands of typical girl stuff. I picked up this technique from some office friends, and thus far it has proven to be very effective in terms of preserving the quality of each item (you know how when you put your wallet and keys together you are ruining that gorgeous leather) as well as expediting the annoying process of trying to find your hair ribbon etc that is buried among a million other things in your bag. So when shopping, I always opt for big bags which allow me to carry all my beloved stuff with me.
But I gotta admit, carrying that many things all the time can be a pain in the butt, despite careful pouch organization. So lately I have grown a whole new fondness towards mini bags which are light and practical, and not to mention cute. Wearing a mini bag reminds me to only bring the stuff that I will or might actually use, and not the other stuff that I just bring so that I don't feel insecure (like earphones, I used to carry them even when I was going to the movies). Also, intense pastel colors do not look very good in the form of big bags, while on the other hand, a mini bag could pull off any hue. Plus, what's more appropriate for a spring/summer hangout than an easy-to-carry, functionable purse? As you see, my sister concurs with me and I am sure most of you do too *wink*
