Only 11cm x 13cm, the Kara mini stowaway bag really forces me to essentialize a bit more before leaving the house. This mesh/leather baby from a previous KARA collection has been my daily bag for the last couple of weeks. It’s so small that I don’t even notice it’s there a lot of the time, it only fits my phone, my keys, one small cosmetic and has its own little wallet incorporated.
It has even proved to be more functional than larger bags with which I sometimes get so busy making sure I packed my favorite pen along with my notebook that I forget my keys. This is like a ready-to-go package of necessities that I can grab and sling around my shoulder before running out the door.
What I love most about Kara is that the same basic designs return each season but in a different form; shearling, different kinds and colors of leather, but my favorite material combo until now has been the white mesh vs pebbled leather, you can imagine how excited I was to hear that they still had a few of these in stock.
