20 XXS purses for maxi effect

Let’s say there exist two styles of Parisiennes:

- The first is a magician who manages to fit all her essentials in an ultra couture nano bag, much less heavy and cumbersome than a big tote. When you ask to verify inside, bluffing, it’s all there. Call her Mary Poppins.

- The second: a real pro when it comes to the season associations, she is super smart. She knows how to associate a maxi bag and a small pouch on top, the best of the layering trend.

Whatever you clan may be, one truth: the mini bag is an indispensable in feminine wardrobe this season. It’s the piece to whip out when you go out to accessorize your party girl look with a jean-sneakers combo and put together a furiously fashion silhouette in a jiffy.
