On my mind | Small Bags

small crossbody designer bags stella mccartney givenchy trend chain

Let me start by saying I have nothing to complain about. I have a closet full of clothes, all sorts of shoes, accessories.. But the one thing I’m really missing lately is some variation in bags. The only one I use are my Wang and one from Zara (worn here), but that’s it. I’m very picky when it comes to bags and although I’ve been looking for a third on the high street, there’s really not even one that is what I’m looking for.
On my mind are small cross-body bags. Which are partly not that coincidentally very much the thing to go for when it comes to bags. Partly coincidentally though because I don’t think the size of a bag is that subject to trends. It’s not like you can’t wear your big bag now that small bags are hot. Also, if I can’t find what I want on the high street, I may have to look a bit more towards high end, where there are actually many that I like. And big bags tend to be quite a lot more of a killer for my bank account than small ones, or maybe even better: small versions of big ones. So above my selection: the bags that meet my requirements, that are what I’m looking for, that I love. Now the next problem: help me choose, please!

Black Givenchy small Nightingale bag / White Alexander Wang Marion bag / Blue Givenchy small Nightingale bag
Grey Stella McCartney Falabella cross-body bag / Proenza Schouler PS1 black shoulder bag
Blue Stella McCartney Falabella cross-body bag / Saint Laurent Mini Betty shoulder bag

    Thank’s for this selection! I’m looking for a quit long time for a blue bag, fitting to jeans. So I love the two light blue ones! Kisses from Vienna, Katja

  9. Laura Says:

    Love these bags!!!


  10. Eva Says:

    Ik zou gaan voor de Marion. Die is klein maar toch ruim genoeg om nog iets in kwijt te kunnen. Mijn andere crash (al staat die niet op het lijstje) is de Mulberry Lily in tweet stof, ook zo leuk! Succes met beslissen ;) xx


  11. Sarah Says:

    I love the blue Stella!

    i think you should get the black givenchy. i have the proenza and its an everyday bag, i thought i could fit my laptop in it for when i would go to university, but it didn’t. its still a great bag! in my opinion, i’d go with the black givenchy

  16. molly Says:

  17. Emilie Lau Says:

    Either go Alexander Wang Marion (never seen it in white it’s gorgeous!) or Stella McCartney Falabella!
    Although the Proenza Schouler is kinda nice as well aha but I think I’d go for the Stella McCarney one :)

    I actually try to avoid small bags because even if I find the cutest ones, I always resort to my bigger ones out of necessity: carrying a camera, and extra pair of shoes for when my ankles die, sometimes a laptop; a small bag, no matter how cute, never cuts in in New York for me :(


    Right this way, a CHANEL GIVEAWAY

    I die for those Falabellas!!!

  22. Chloe Says:

    I adore the white Marion by Wang! Gorgeous.
    A little note from someone who has made (TWO) shopping mistakes (over three weeks) before finally finding something that worked exactly right — make sure you figure out beforehand what you want the bag to carry, and then figure out how much room that translates too. Nothing sucks worse than spending money on a lovely bag and then realizing that it is totally impractical for your needs and is worth as much as a broken bobby pen (a beautiful one, but still)!

    The Stella McCartney is also on my mind, the holographic version to be precisely!
