I’m one of those girls that honestly doesn’t need a big bag. I don’t really take anything anywhere. The biggest thing I carry is a pair of Gucci sunglasses, and I usually forget those at home anyway. I switch bags a lot, so my must-haves have been whittled down over the years to just my keys and my Blackberry, with a cardholder attached to my key ring. As a result, I often feel super silly carrying any kind of oversized handbag, because I can’t come close to filling it. Some people have files and paperwork they carry for their jobs, but I work from home. Some people have laptops they carry for school, but I graduated. So for those of us that feel weird at times with a giant handbag, Marc by Marc Jacobs has created a smaller version of one of their most popular handbags: the Classic G Baby Groovee Satchel. I love the original, but my phone and key ring get lonely at the bottom all by themselves. This bag, at 13″ long, is about 3″ shorter than the original and would look absolutely adorable carried by hand or in the crook of the arm (it comes with a shoulder strap, but skip that option). Plus, this purple-pink is so pretty for spring! Buy through Nordstrom for $348.
