Image001 They’re boxy. And they are big. In the fashion trend sense.Telluride Inside… and Out’s fashion expert Kristin Holbrook of Two Skirts is talking about the small satchel. So move over large totes and hobos. Make way for the boxy, flap silhouette with the ultra long strap, petite purses that suggest a modern edge and ladylike elegance.

Hands-free carry-(mostly)-alls are great for the woman on the go and more than their big sisters, they work as accessories, adding just a touch of je ne sais quoi to any wardrobe, day or night.

Mini satchels are not new. Chanel created the Classic Flap Bag over 50 years. That version, however, has been updated in rustic tweeds and soft silk. Minis come in bright colors, prints and solids, adorned with fringe.

Buy a mini satchel this weekend, and you are supporting Clutch for the Cause, Kristin’s fundraiser for the San Miguel Resource Center.
