Trend of the Week: The Mini Bag


“Micro bags, some scarcely larger than a kiwi, date back at least to the Fendi runway more than a year ago. At the time, editors cooed; celebrity bloggers like Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad flaunted their own versions during fashion weeks in Paris and Milan. And the charm like bags gained traction, exerting an outsize pull on women’s purse strings. ‘There’s a growing market for small purses and cross-body bags,’ said Courtney Ignelzi, the trend editor of Accessories Magazine, “and a huge potential.” Ms. Ignelzi cited a 2015 study by the NPD Group, which tracks consumer spending, showing a sales jump of 4 percent over 2014 in small accessories (including nano bags), indicating, she said, that the micro is “a driving force within the accessories market.” -Text source:

“Meet Ove. He’s a curmudgeon—the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse.[…]Behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness. A feel-good story[…], Fredrik Backman’s novel about the angry old man next door is a thoughtful exploration of the profound impact one life has on countless others.” –
