Teeny tiny handbags were all the rage during the Paris Fashion Week preview for Fall 2019. Although ridiculously cute, the micro bags are far from functional–barely capable of storing even a quarter for a payphone much less one’s smartphone or credit cards.
Given the impracticality of a microscopic bag–not to mention the exorbitant price tag of $345 – 795–we decided to come up with some purse alternatives that are mini without being micro.
This houndtooth print mini by Kate Spade is only 5.4″ x 8″ but will still fit your wallet, smartphone, lipstick and more. It’s on sale for $98 and will earn 3 Points per dollar.
Get this 6 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ Cross-body Event bag at Express for less than $28 and earn 2 Points per dollar.
This Petite Handbag with detachable chain is only 4 3/4″ x 7″ and comes in Coral or Gold. Earn 3 Points per dollar at QVC and snag it for less than $29 including shipping and handling.
This 9 1/2″ x 6″ travel clutch offers RFID protection and plenty of storage space for less than $16 and 2 Points per dollar at Kohl’s.
Finally, this 9″ x 5″ Nine West pouchette is pretty in pink and on sale for less than $25 and 6 Points per dollar at Macy’s.
