I was looking for a small purse that could carry the essentials (money, credit cards, lip balm, hand cream, cell phone). It needed to easily fit into my laptop case for work, a pocketbook afterwork, and a backpack for day-hikes with the dogs. It also need to be sufficient to be used all by itself for quick errands around town.
This Plaza Mini fits the bill on most accounts. I wish that it was a tad bigger, as it seems like it'll burst after I try to squeeze in a set of keys or a tampon (sorry, I had to be honest).
I like that it has both a wrist strap as well as a longer one, that could be used as a shoulder or cross-body strap.
I would highly recommend this bag. Guess if it were any bigger, it wouldn't be able to do all the things I ask of it. Baggallini has a great selection. I can always size-up when the time comes.
