At present I’ve a handbag evaluation of the Chloe Mini Marcie Bag. I featured it in just a few journey/packing posts and obtained so many questions on it asking for a evaluation. As a lot as I like having medium sized tote to hold every day issues, I’ve discovered myself sporting smaller baggage extra usually for his or her comfort and elegance. Since I’m on the petite aspect, smaller cross physique baggage usually are higher fitted to my quick body. The Mini Marcie model has been round for a very long time however I feel it’s nonetheless one you possibly can put on right this moment. I like the informal look it has. There are such a lot of good colours – it was robust to choose one, however I narrowed it right down to the Tan (medium heat golden brown) coloration and discover it actually versatile for my wardrobe. My subsequent two picks would have been both the Black or Summary White.
The Marcie Bag is available in just a few measurement choices, the mini one is the smallest possibility that I picked. It’s presently priced at $890 and it comes with an adjustable strap. I’ve it set to the shortest possibility which works nicely for me (I’m 5’three″). The bag is fabricated from grained calfskin leather-based. It’s gentle however fairly sturdy (up to now). It’s additionally retained it’s form nicely as I haven’t seen any sagging. It has an open inside with two small flat pockets which I haven’t made use of, however I like that they’re there. The bag has a rounded however flat base so it’s going to arise on it’s personal. Measurements are roughly 6 inches large by 7 tall, depth of the bottom is three.5 inches. There’s an open ring on the base to loop the strap on the backside in. I actually just like the design options as a result of it’s tremendous straightforward to entry the contents inside, however the flap retains every thing fairly safe. The one factor I’d change is the strap design. The tip kinda hangs unfastened for those who modify it to the shortest measurement. I want there was some type of clasp to maintain it in place/safe.
A take a look at the main points, the entrance has a fairly saddle formed entrance flap:
A take a look at the aspect and again, I like that it’s flat so it doesn’t really feel prefer it’s poking your sides whenever you carry it:

Right here’s what I used to be in a position to match inside my bag over the weekend. I can swap issues out of comparable sizes – if I skip the hand cream, I can match a small dry shampoo inside. If I go for a flat card case I can match my sun shades inside (with out the case). It’s small inside however not too small for me. In an effort to edit my closet and equipment I bought virtually all my small wallets and equipment in a weblog sale earlier this 12 months. I slowly realized as I began carrying smaller baggage that I would want to repurchase a small pockets. I did quite a lot of analysis and opted for the Gucci Marmont Card Case once more. I had this in an older model within the quilted sample. Out of all of the leather-based items I’ve had I discover Louis Vuitton and Gucci to be the sturdiest no matter leather-based sort. The sleek leather-based of my older one held up very well. This one has a grained floor which I like extra typically. The case has sufficient slots for my ID and playing cards that I carry. The present model has a zipper for small change and a compartment for money. It suits my iPhone X.

One final look with a aspect by aspect of two different small cross physique baggage. The YSL Pockets on Chain is one I’ve had for a few years however the inside and flat design makes it onerous to hold something besides simply playing cards and small objects. It’s an important going out purse or one for those who simply need to carry just a few lipglosses or keys and telephone and the standard is superb. The Tory Burch Marsden Leather-based Pockets Crossbody Bag is one thing I purchased throughout the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale over the summer season however they nonetheless inventory it. It’s an important easy pouch. Inside there are slots to carry playing cards for those who don’t need to carry a separate pockets.
