I have an affinity for things that are small. Small makeup palettes, small treats and especially small puppies. I also love small purses and things that go in them. I've never been one to carry around a "suitcase" or carry-all purse. They're too bulky for me and always get in my way. I like small purses that I can toss over my shoulder and that can go to the mall or on a bike ride.
The advantage of a small purse? It's portable, typically lightweight, and great for on-the-go. The disadvantage? You can't fit much into it! In my purse above, I carry a checkbook, a nail file, a pack of gum, two chapsticks and a lip gloss, my cell phone, my keys, and a wallet. But not just any wallet—because most don't fit. Mine is actually a Vera Bradley Zip ID Case. I bought my first Zip ID when I was in college, and now I can't seem to want to use anything else. It's so convenient. Mine fits my 3 ID's, and about 16 other credit cards, gift cards, insurance cards and—you know—the necessities... all with room to spare!
The color of my Zip ID is Jazzy Blooms... though for some reason that style/color is not on the VB website, but they do have it here or—in a slightly different style—the Clip Zip ID. Anyway, Vera Bradley doesn't know who I am and doesn't know that I'm over here raving about their products... but as a VB fan for years, I just wanted to let you know about one of my favorite products they make.
Do you style BIG or small?
