Summer Bag Matter

mini bags new season fashion style bags for winter 2012 summer 2011, fashion blog Sydney,

Summer is almost here! Its time to wave good bye to giant heavy bags stuffed with ‘necessities’ and update for something smaller and brighter. Do you think?

The new season is all about mini bags. Bright color provides maximum impact and even the smallest bag becomes a statement piece. Whether it is a satchel, shoulder bag, clutch, saddle bag or a cross body bag: it should be small and bright.

I conducted a thorough reconnaissance on what’s available online worldwide and in Australia. Here is a selection of bags that I think deserve your attention, to match different budgets and color preferences.

    Love them all.
    The mini luxe are all above my budget but let me tell you one can’t tell the difference between the others. They look great as well. I’m loving deep green right now and yellow, guess these colors would be my favourites.

    From the luxe group I pick the Miu Miu, the bright colour and the textured leather make a great combination!

    And from the budget group my vote is for #7, love the sharp yellow and boxy shape.

    Hey friend! I apologize for being a bit absent from your blog; work’s been keeping my time tangled up. Your summer is just starting, and mine never ends, haha! I’m liking the #5 Miu Miu myself. I also like that you’ve chosen lots of bright colors; makes a purse more fun!
