When the weather starts to warm up, the minis start to come out in force. This is my third year writing for PurseBlog, and I’m still stumped as to why this is the pattern. Do we really carry that much less stuff in the spring? We can finally toss out that one giant bottle of winter moisturizer, so we decide to downsize to a mini until August? It’s a puzzle. In other news, select stars will not stop carrying Chanel, and they refuse to apologize.
Chanel Quilted Tote
Disney poppet Bella Thorne was spotted with a nice Chanel tote at JFK on her way to make an appearance on The View. Fun fact: Bella Thorne is still just 17.
Givenchy Small Antigona Bag
$2,095 via MyTheresa
It’s spring, and celebs’ bags are shrinking once again, for reasons I don’t completely understand. Here’s Khloé Karhdashian, leaving the gym and heading to a hair salon with her small blue version of the Givenchy Antigona.
Balenciaga Mini City Bag
$1,395 via MyTheresa
And here’s her sister Kourtney, carrying a Balenciaga mini as she escorts her two eldest children, Mason and Penelope, to ballet class in Woodland Hills. She’s also carrying a backpack of some sort, because a mini is not the most functional choice for a mom of three.

Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams is also 17, just like Bella Thorne, but I feel like she’s having a lot more fun with it. Here she is, heading into an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live in a head-to-toe Kate Spade outfit, complete with an amazing, figural wicker frog bag.
Chanel Boy Wallet on a Chain Bag
Nastia is a retired Russian-American gymnast with a few Olympic gold medals and World Championships to her name, and as you’ve probably already guessed, she’s competing on this season of Dancing with the Stars. Here she is on her way into The View studios, flashing her Chanel Boy Wallet.
