Smaller is better, at least this season when it comes to handbags. And why not? After all, a smaller handbag requires of us each to determine exactly what we need and bring no more. While I not entirely onboard with this shift yet, I appreciate immensely the premise. How many times have I searched in my tote for my lip gloss, keys or pen? The Wall Street Journal just last month contemplated this very shift in women’s accessories, and in order to make this shift, Nancy Armstrong, senior producer at MAKERS, a digital platform that promotes women’s leadership, pointed out, “It’s almost like with age comes the confidence to know that you don’t need to carry around all of those things.” I want to get to this point. I am working on it because I have a feeling it will be quite liberating. What are your thoughts on the down-sizing of the handbag?
