Short and Sweet

Short, small, compact, whatever you prefer, tiny bags are back. The trend follows right on heels of (what else?) the era of the giant tote, which is not such a good look for petite gals unless they wish to look like the bag lady.
Jil Sander, Proenza Schouler, Valentino, and Marc Jacobs are amongst the famed designers working small bags into their Spring/Summer 2012 lines. From tassels to spikes and sharply colored leathers, the small bags are anything but 'cute', evoking a look of edginess for the wearer.

Vogue's Social Shopper said on the trend, "You’ve heard it before: Less is more. And, now, with all of us carrying around a single device that functions as our e-mail, telephone, camera, compass (what? no compass?), planner, and mirror, the classic day bag is starting to feel, well, just a little too roomy."
Peruse through my favorite picks from the designers' lines.
