As every girl undoubtedly knows, trying to find an evening bag to hold all your stuff is nearly impossible. Everyone always says all you need is your cellphone, lipstick, and ID/Credit card. Sounds small and cute and compact right? Wrong. In reality, you need a bag that will hold your cellphone, lipstick, coverup, perfume, ID, credit card, cash, gum, keys, and, if you’re like me, some emergency sugar and snacks. And even if you do only have the first three, a cellphone can be bigger than most evening bags (see: Nokia Lumia, Samsung Galaxy).
I myself have recently had the misfortune of losing important items not once but three times in the past few months alone due to an evening bag that was entirely too small and wouldn’t close. I finally decided enough is enough and set out to find some bigger bags that were still small enough to be deemed evening worthy. Behold the list that will save you from losing an ID ever again (ok not really, but hey, they’ll help!)
