Amelia was mocking me this morning for my love of mini-purses, but she’ll see where she’s wrong when I smack some catcalling oaf in the face with a perfectly-sized mini-purse and she can’t!

No more dragging your life’s possessions around over one arm and killing your neck and shoulder blades. Suck it, hobo bags — your days are numbered.
