Prada-Robot-Trick-Nancy-Bag-Charm

In a certain way, the rise and continued popularity of bag charms makes a lot of sense. Handbag are incredibly expensive, and although most bag charms aren’t exactly cheap, buying one to put on a more classic bag in your arsenal is a lot more cost-effective than buying a whole novelty bag that you may only use sporadically or for a single season.

Best-Wallet-on-Chain-Bags

Tiny bags may be a huge (and persistent) trend, but not all little purses are created equally. While some are simply a small receptacle for whatever you can wedge into them, others provide a level of organization that makes it easier to leave the house without one of the biggest, most important things in any woman’s purse: a wallet.

Fendi-Karlito-Fur-Bag-Charm

The first run of the Fendi Karlito Bag Charm was so successful that I never actually saw one for sale anywhere, either online or in stores. The wait lists were long, and although Megs was able to get on one and get a Karlito of her own, plenty of people who wanted to carry the tiny, furry visage of Karl Lagerfeld were out of luck.

Comme des Garcons Neon Continental Wallet, $280 via Net-a-Porter

Despite our obvious fondness for leather accessories, we don’t talk much about wallets. We never have. It’s not because we lack appreciation for a good wallet, but more that they’re hidden and utilitarian, when compared to pretty much everything else we spend our time obsessing about over here.

Hermes-Hermy-Cravache-Plush-Horse

When I really sit down and think about it, it seems like being very wealthy would be, among other things, super weird. It would be great in a lot of ways, of course–for instance, I could command someone to grill me a medium-rare steak for lunch, and I would surely enjoy that.

Dogeared-Hi-Haters-Pouch

We talk a lot about handbags, but what happens inside them is just as important. Our bags’ interiors are their own little worlds of wallets, pouches, accessories and essentials, and we’re in and out of them all day. That kind of organization can be especially important when it comes to toting around beauty products for quick touchups, so we took the liberty of shopping around for a dozen cosmetic bags you’ll be proud to haul out of your purse in the office bathroom.

Anya Hindmarch Leather Stickets

Over the past few seasons, Anya Hindmarch has exploded her following by thinking outside the box (or outside the bag). For Spring 2015, her collection was full of simple shoppers and shoulder bags, embellished with whimsical leather embroidery and stickers that imparted tons of personality.

Dolce-and-Gabbana-Handbag-Keychain

With the unmitigated success of the teeny-tiny Fendi Micro Peekaboo Bag, it was only a matter of time before other brands started giving their loyal shoppers the option of adorning their new handbags with a newer, smaller handbag. As far as we’ve seen, Dolce & Gabbana is the first brand out of the gates to embrace this trend, and it’s doing it with tiny Sicily bags.

Hermes-Constance-Pendant-White-Gold-and-Diamonds

It’s rare that the diamond-encrusted version of something costs less than its original version, but Hermès is a rare company indeed. It’s worth noting, of course, that the diamond-encrusted versions of the brand’s popular Birkin, Kelly and Constance bags are meant to be worn around one’s neck and are therefore very small, but still: diamonds.

The-Handbag-Raincoat-Large

A lot of you responded with your own tales of woe when Megs wrote about getting caught in the rain with her pale pink Givenchy Antigona, so I suppose it shouldn’t surprise anyone that The Handbag Raincoat exist and is available to purchase at Shopbop in three sizes.
