Lately I noticed I’ve been choosing my biggest bags for carrying the littlest amount of stuff. And then folding them in half and nonchalantly sporting under my arm. I had a phase where I would carry my bags with handles in hands, sweeping the streets the whole day. I still do it sometimes. Then I had a clutch phase, but that didn’t last very long since they look ah-maaaazing but are so impractical for everyday. Then came the backpack phase. That’s usually my summer thing, since I always imagine I’m headed to a rave or a festival as soon as I get out the door. Last but not least is this weird thing I’ve been doing for few months now. I’m guessing it’s a mental thing eg. ‘I wanna wear a clutch, but can’t since I might need more room later. Or my hands will get tired so I’ll need straps’, etc. So the weird thing feels like the perfect solution. And looks cool too.

I quite like this unconscious obsession of mine. I only hope I don’t look as ridiculous as those girls with their bags hanging loose from their elbow joints, with wrists flopping (or carrying a cell phone) and mouth opened and all. Lil’ fashion advice, girls – do not take style tips from Hollywood celebrities, ever. Unless they’re Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Then go for it. Those girls know their fashion.

ne mogu da verujem da je torba na drugoj slici orflame, taman sam htela da pitam odakle je. i ja patim zbog neprakticnosti pismo torbi i, takodje, cistim ulice torbama:) i u fazi sam potrage za dobrim koznim rancem.
inace, kolicina pratilaca potpuno zasluzena, cestitam!

Love love the way you carry your bags like this. I haven’t found a purse of mine that can fold like that, but I’ll keep looking. <3

U pravu si, velika torba koja se tako nosi jeste najsvestranije resenje…moram priznati da ja jako volim (da vidim) nosenje torbe u ruci, bila ona clutch ili ovako velika, ali u svakodnevnom zivotu volim torbe koje mi ostavljaju ruke slobodnim – npr. platnene cegere (koji me + podsecaju i na Berlin, eto jos jednog opravdanja za modnu lenjost :)

looks very cool, Minnie! it’s so interesting, to go through phases with just such little details as the way one carries their purse, that just makes style so much more peculiar and fun at the same time.

Svidja mi se kako nosis ove torbe, a i slike su fantasticne. Steta samo sto koliko god mi je torba velika, uvek je puna pa ne mogu da isprobam…

ah, i unconsciously slip into the ‘bags hanging loose from their elbow joints, with wrists flopping (or carrying a cell phone)’ when i’m in a rush or i’m waiting to get things out of my bag – it’s a bad habit!

i am in love with the way you’re folding these bags over. i have a few bags that are a little too big so i’m definitely going to try this! the first and second ones look perfect.

i like the structured handbag folded under the arm, much more than the blip of clumsy paperbag style clutch that was popular for a bit. the handles are still practical/necessity.

ps congrats on 2000+!
