easy fashion in a complicated city

Mini Bags

Mini Bags

I can’t believe it, I’m almost on month FIVE of living in New York City. The time has really flown and I’ve been loving every second of this lifestyle.

Let’s talk about one of my favorite accessories…HANDBAGS! There is something about mini, on-the-go bags that I love. I used to be on the hunt for the perfect tote bag and fell for this Kate Spade Cameron Street Lucie but realized I needed a smaller cross-body for New York. The bag was difficult to carry around on jam packed streets and I ended up leaving my computer at the office everyday instead of bringing it home…the reason why I needed a tote bag in the first place. I switched to carrying around a smaller bag and downsizing to only carrying around the essentials.

I grabbed this Micro Avery cross-body at a Rebecca Minkoff Sample Sale in the city last week. I’ve been on the hunt lately for a summer side-kick and this little bag was a winner! The white leather is refreshing for summer and the Kate Spade scarf I styled with it makes it one of a kind.

I heard about the Sample Sale through the new app, ShopDrop. THe app allows me to view every sample sale that’s currently happening in the city and one’s opening in the next few weeks. This app is definitely going to be dangerous for my NYC budget!
