There is a saying at Judith Leiber about a woman needing only a tube of lipstick and a $100 bill for an evening out. Well, Ms. Leiber didn't factor in driving and cell phone for modern gals when she came up with that clever little phrase.
It was a struggle for me to use this bag because I couldn't even fit a small wallet in the clutch if I wanted to bring a cell phone, car key and house key. That is not too much to ask for, right?! In the end, I had to toss the wallet and literally bring only a few bills, one credit card along with an ID in order to bring 2 keys and a cell phone. Well downsizing has its benefits, at least my shoulders won't hurt from carrying everything but the kitchen sink. Do you downsize for an evening out?
