Celebs Are Downsizing with the Jacquemus Mini Bag — and These Under $100 Dupes Can Help You Do the Same

Ah, the purse. An undeniable lifeline for any woman, it neatly holds all of your essentials so they’re at the ready  in a moment’s notice, keeping your bases covered during emergencies, and holding snacks when the cravings hit. So when Jacquemus sent models down the runway with American Girl Doll sized handbags, the internet exploded.

 

 

 

It’s a level of empty baggage that’s unheard of, and even gives Marie Kondo a run for her money. While this microscopic handbag gave the world some giggles, the Jacquemus Le Chiquito bag’s slightly larger version of the tiny runway finger purse  has been making waves. Kendall Jenner, Rihanna, Hailey Bieber, and Beyoncé have all been spotted carrying Jacquemus handbags in mini and micro sizes that look just big enough to carry some cash, id’s and a couple mints.

Before you start backing away thinking  you couldn’t possibly convert to a mini handbag, think about this: Shoulder pain, over-packing and bulky bags are a real sore spot . How long do we need to be weighed down by things we don’t use? Imagine how freeing it would be to step out the door with a mini top handle bag that’s featherlight. Small enough to set on your lap or on the table at lunch, with diverse ways to carry (top handle, over the shoulder or around the waist), and not to mention it’s cute as hell — bring on the tiny bag, baby.

Getting your hands on a Jacquemus Le Chiquito Mini Bag is still pretty hard as it is constantly selling out in both mini and grand sizes, not to mention a price tag starting at $486! If you can’t justify that kind of splurge we found several lookalikes that are just as petite (and all are under $100).
