Normally, big slouchy bags or oversized clutches are my preference for everyday. But, after seeing the small ladylike bags that designers debuted for Fall 2011, I am suddenly craving a change. Take a look at some examples from the runway:
I like that this style is just big enough to hold all your essentials, but it has a vintage-inspired structured shape that won’t weigh you down. Here are my penny-pincher picks:

I do love these small structured bags. I just don't know if I can make everything fit in them!

I have a small structured bag that I love but I can only carry it when I'm off mommy duty. LOL
Neris / Fashion Fractions says
I love all the bags you picked! Super cute!
@My Dressy Ways, I know what you mean – the matchbox cars & Polly Pockets won't fit in a smaller bag…LOL!
I just found vintage leather via moda crossbody that I love!! It looks similar to the vintage genuine leather satchel!
I am really excited that ladylike chic is going to be haute for fall! I have several of these structured bags, especially a vintage crocodile one from the 1960s. I like the handbags you selected for this post, can't wait to see which one you'll be adding to your closet.
want them all! great affordable picks!!
