So this is my idea of "casual". You know... Skinny jeans, a leather jacket, sky-high wedges and a small handbag so I can run errands. No big deal.

While I adore a giant handbag both in it's functionality and stylish appeal, I can't stand having a heavy, 10 lb. pound strapped to my shoulder every day. Might as well put my dog in my bag and lug his ass around.

Salvation was found when I picked up this No. 7 Quilted Camera Bag from Henri Bendel bag back in December when I hosted a VIP shopping event at their Short Hills store. I couldn't resist. The gold chain. The pink stitching that made the leather look chic and slick. It was the perfect fit into my collection of smaller handbags.

Turns out I picked a winner since it's big enough to fit all my essentials. Plus, it's shoulder strap converts to pull double duty as an even smaller bag. Yahtzee!
