Whatever happened to the saying, "bigger is better?" If you're like me, you love a good handbag, especially if it comes in Mary Poppins-esque proportions and possesses the ability to stash and store your entire life. Alas, the latest tote trend is the pretty little pouch that you can tuck under your arm and not fuss over. Not to be confused with a wristlet, these pouches are proportionally comparable to that of letter size paper (sorry, my layout doesn't allow me to post large photos that would otherwise help determine their scale). Here's a selection of a few of my faves at different price points. I think I might snag the American Apparel one (#5) in a nude hue. It looks like it would be super easy to customize with studs, paint, or a classic monogram. Thoughts? Would you pick up a pouch or ditch it for a bigger (and sometimes better) satchel?
