Micro-Purses are the new black


From the New York Times:



Struggling to unplug?

There's an accessory for that.

Purses too small to fit a phone are the biggest thing in handbags these days, spotted on the dainty wrists of celebrities and Instagram influencers clogging up the feed.

Micro-bags have trended before in fashion, but styles like the Jacquemus Insta-famous Chiquito (above and below) have taken it to new (tinier) levels.

Measuring just 3.1 inches tall, 4.7 inches wide, and 2 inches deep, the Chiquito won't accommodate much more than your lipstick and credit card, to say nothing of your phone.

You may be inspired only to move the gadget to a bigger pocket, but in today's hyper-connected world, looking as if you stepped out without a phone may be the ultimate sign of status.




Too much?

You can prolly get one that looks pretty similar for under $5 in the toy section at Walmart.
