It's the second week of school, my bag is approximately 382 lbs and all I can think about are these adorable mini crossover purses that all my friends brought back from their summer rendezvous in Europe. I seriously envy the kind of girl that can condense her life into a fist sized bag, and considering the daily aches and pains and premature back problems I'm giving myself (I'm sure), this bag doesn't just look cute and low-maintenance, but it's so incredibly utilitarian as well. And maybe forcing myself to get rid of the extra pair of shoes, two novels, computer mouse, makeup bag, yoga mat (and oh yeah, books and notebooks and this laptop a;ldkjflakd) might be a smart thing to do. (Also, for those true fashionistas out there--this translates perfectly to the whole fall thing--juxtapose your bulky layers with this simple, unfussy accessory. Trust me, your chiropractor will thank you).
