It's no secret that size has become the clincher when it comes to choosing a bag. Words to live by: The smaller the better. Petite purses are ace for two reasons: First, a fun-sized bag adds a touch of irreverence to any outfit; and second, it helps a daytime ensemble segue into one that's evening appropriate.

Realistically speaking, practicality might stand in the way of fun (when does it not), and its petite size might not be feasible on the weekdays. However, come the weekend, it's the perfect time to stow away the trusty carry-all and reach for that fun-sized bag.
