Having a back injury is making me very selective when choosing my bags each day. I have to make sure I carry something lightweight yet large enough to hold at least my wallet, keys and cell. As I (painfully) discovered, one should not carry a cross body bag stuffed full of things when one has a pinched L5 nerve– a better option is a small hand held bag that won’t tempt you to throw everything but the sink in there (an even better option is a small fanny pack but let’s not even go there!). I’m digging the Angela small pouchette from Alexander Wang, the round cylinder shape is tres adorable and the soft pebbly leather gives it just enough slouch. And honestly, 8″x8″ is plenty for my needs– I know we all think we need to carry our lives in our oversized bags in order to survive but if you limit yourself, you’d be surprised at how little you can do with out.
