This Mango treasure begs to differ.
It was love at first sight, obviously, punctuated by an even headier intoxicant of lust – news that it was sold out. A perfectly sized minaudière in bang-on-trend tortoiseshell.
And now, it's restocked. What to do?
Don't get me wrong – I'm all for making an investment in a handbag, but this one errs on the side of gloriously impractical – a tiny handle and barely enough room for the wallet, phone and lipstick Holy Trinity. However, one look at the runway at Shrimps and Mansur Gavriel and micro-bags are here to stay. Perfect justification, no?
On that note, here are four other ridiculously impractical yet ultra desirable bags for you to torment yourself over.
Metal handle bag, €29.99, Mango
Double circle bag, €1,450, The Row at Net-a-Porter
Johnny bag, €355, Danse Lente at Brown Thomas
Leather circle bag, €99, & Other Stories
