If you are like me and have been a long time fan of Valentino but have not splurged on one of their bags, this may be the item for you. Sure, the Valentino Petale Chain Strap Leather Mini Bag is entirely small, but the design packs a punch.

I was never entirely sold on mini bags, but I have come to appreciate their functionality in recent months. If you do not always have to carry around every last item you typically stuff into your bag, having an easily accessible mini bag is the perfect option. Lately I only leave the house with a couple credit cards, cash, lip gloss, phone, and my keys.

Ok so this Valentino mini bag is truly mini, with dimensions of 5″W X 5″H X 1″D. An iPhone is 4.5″, so it can just squeeze into this bag. Once you get your phone in there, your other few essentials fit as well. This is perfect for a night out (truly perfect). And I forgot to even talk about the design with you all. This is classic Valentino, merely on a smaller scale. The petal applique on the front is what we have come to expect from Valentino. Most larger Valentino bags will run around $2k, so this is a great little piece of the brand. Available exclusively at Saks in black, blush, lipstick, and red. Buy for $325.

    I really love it and know it is meant to be mini, but for me if it was even 6″ instead of 5″ it would be so much more useful and aesthetically pleasing. At 5″ it looks like a bag for my 5 year old daughter. I think I would have bought it right away if i was a smidge bigger.

    I have not been a fan of Valentino bags, but this one is very cute and i would get the blush one in a heartbeat.

    Megs, I think the Valentino Petale Chain Bag is one of the cutest mini bags ever! I’m surprised at how affordable it is.

    Amazing bag for three mtoivations: the amazing shape that it has, the good price for a mini bag (do you remind the crazy price that Jacobs gave to the mini bags that he did for LV?) and the glamour, chic, and young appeal that this bag has!!

    love it!!

    Even though it’s still out of my price range, I really like it. I could see myself wearing it on date night with my husband.

  • Lorie

    Love it! Great way to add a little Valentino to my collection.

  • ShopAroundTours

    Very cute, but it would be much more practical with just an extra inch or two.

  • Zaneta

    I aboslutely love it. Very cute. Piece that shouldn’t be missing in anybodies collection. Great job Mr. Valentino. :)

  • Resham

    Its a cute piece. Kill me to tell this, but my local ADORN SENSE had a similar looking bag for $15…

  • Stylista

    Never actually seen a Valentino mini bag! But this looks great! I’d love to get my hands on one.

    I do’t like it , mehh.

  • Mika

    looks like from H&M or zara, leather looks cheap too. :(

  • jbbee

    I’m loving these little bags! I’m tempted to get the bright red one, but afraid it won’t go with LBD. The blush is nice, but from my experience, shiny leather tends to peel :(.

    I do agree with Mika–the leather looks cheap in the photos. Hope it looks nicer IRL!

    I had a similar purse when I was ten (ipad)

  • nini

    cute. But I generally don’t like chain bags. (ipad)

  • Jelita78

    i have a thing for roses – so, sue me but oh god i love this!! (ipad)

  • Annalisa

    I echo the sentiments of the other commenters; this would be much more practical as like an 8″ bag. At the size it is now, it’s basically a coin purse on a chain. Every time I end up buying a mini bag like this, I end up giving it to my 6 year old! They just look awkward on me. (ipad)

  • Charmosa

    I really like it, would love in green to match my petal bag! I think it would be better as a clutch though rather than on a chain. (ipad)

  • helen

    Like little rosettes. Pretty (ipad)

  • Jen

    I hate these with a passion. (ipad)

    Adorable! (ipad)
