Bigger isn't always better as evident with the current trend of handbags moving away from the larger than life silhouettes to a small and mighty pint size silhouette.  These smaller silhouettes are considerably reduced but they still pack a punch.  How you say? Because the beauty is in the details.  Whether it be an an obscure shape like Anya Hindmarch's evident fruit inspiration or the intricate beading and detail that is signature to Judith Leiber's handbags.

Check out my round-up of my favorite Spring 2013 pint size stunners:
