You’d think that with all the pictures of handbags I see on a daily basis, I’d be good at visualizing their size without seeing them in person. And if you think that, you’d be wrong at least a good bit of the time. Maybe I should spent a little more time on my math (or science, or whatever subject taught you about the wonderful world of measurements) lessons in school, but if a site doesn’t offer pictures of its bags with models or on a model form, then I’m usually a bit clueless.
The Rebecca Minkoff Ibiza Mini Mini Bag says that it’s 9.5 inches wide, and that means only one thing to me – it’s not huge. Theoretically, it’s smaller than a Morning After Mini. So if it’s approximately the size that I’m imagining in my head, I think this is a bag that a lot of people that are uncomfortable with clutches would like. Everyone has that friend that refuses to carry a clutch, so then you have to jam her phone and keys into yours, and you just can’t stop thinking that she should BUY A FREAKIN’ BAG ALREADY every time you go out with her at night (ahem, my friend like this is named Candice). That friend of yours? She should buy this bag and carry her own stuff for once. And maybe yours too, because she owes you. Buy through ShopBop for $295.
