I Need a New Small Bag

092006_oldbag.jpg So while I am still hanging tough with my big commuting bag I am in desperate need for a replacement for my small "running errands" bag. I've had this Old Navy Braided-Cinch purse in khaki green for almost two years now and it has served me well. The perfect size to throw in my cell, wallet, camera and keys it was just the right weight to carry when running to the grocery store or going for a walk in the park. But recently it had gotten pretty tired looking and the braided handle is starting to look a little worn. So I'm shopping for a new small bag, something in a lightweight fabric with a lightweight price.

The leader of the pack so far is the Natural hobo from the Gap. Looks good and small, but full o pockets and with a nice contrast lining. I haven't been able to see this bag in person yet because it hasn't shown up at any NYC Gaps yet, and the Gap customer service is not help at all. (If you see this bag at a NYC-area Gap let me know: thebagblog at gmail.com!)

Banana Re has a nice plaid/suede bag that is worth an in person look. But besides that I am out of ideas.

Let me know if you have a great suggestion for the perfect small bag for me.

I've done some updating to my links page by removing some old sites and putting up my new favorites.

Here are some great new bag/fashion blogs that have caught my attention recently:
