Travel purse?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi! I'm looking for a cute, small purse that can be worn across the body for my trip to Italy this summer. Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks!

prada messenger - they come in many sizes/style/colors and last forever. You can get a realy good deal on one on eBay

Coach has some really cute mini purses you can wear across your chest, they run about $150 new though.

I have yet to see something in that style that is remotely wearable. And you are going to Italy!

You may be better off with a regular bag. Check some of the European fashion blogs.

Thanks! Yep, I normally don't like the crossbody a ton, but I keep seeing it recommended everywhere just for "security" during the crowded summer months, because of the pickpockets. We've never had a problem in Rome before, but we've always gone in Winter/Spring and keep reading that it's worse in summer.

I already have this little Prada nylon bag (but in ivory/light tan) that I wore last time. It fits snugly under my arm because it's tiny: Prada Small Nylon

But the little black messenger ones look ok to me, too: http://i.ebayimg.com/15/!BS9W6bg!2k~$(KGrHgoH-CEEjlLly3cCBKF42CY5Kw~~_1.JPG

I bought a cute little haiku one for like $30 a few weeks ago but have been having second thoughts about it: Haiku by Sharon Eisenhauer Grab Bag Hana by at Zappos.com

Think I need to look further, or am I set?

Thanks!!

That prada messenger is the smallest they make, you might want a tiny bit bigger. IMO the Haiku bag looks like something a little girl would have.

If you can get more pics of this one from the seller to help authenticate this one is a really good deal.

Haha yeah I see what you mean. I do like the smallest Prada though - no need to carry much around town with me. Thanks!

Then the flat style should be good. The one you are looking at is just really tiny.
