At Bag Religion, we see a mini bag as the perfect opportunity to pop some fun colour or structure into your wardrobe. While every day work bags are best bought from a practicality standpoint- a mini is a more affordable way to have some fun with your outfits. For the most part, minis aren’t for everyday use- so they don’t need to be quite as versatile.
Not to mention- minis make a great travel accessory when you’ve got the world in your bag and want a few essentials at the ready.
As a luxury consignment business, we cross paths with a lot of cuties. Join us as we shout out our favourite mini bags- and share some outfit inspo along the way.

This mini bag has all the class and elegance of a larger Chanel flap bag in an adorably petite package. While you won’t be able to fit much in this mini bag, the turnlock front closure will keep your essentials safe. This is the perfect time to utilize your card holder, mini wallets, or coin purses.
As usual, Chanel’s chain strap offers you some versatility with your bag. Wear it cross body, or double up the chain for a shorter shoulder strap.
We love the back pocket on this mini. Stash some business cards there for an important brunch meeting at a cute location.
This mini bag says so much about the Dior aesthetic: It’s feminine, flirty and chic, while remaining structured and practical. Can women have it all? This mini replies with a resounding YES.
The Lady Dior mini bag will serve you well on occasions when you’re packing light. The small interior can fit your phone, keys, a card holder, and a lipstick. Really, what more could you want? A versatile cutie, this mini bag comes with a long shoulder strap that can easily go crossbody, or you can go strapless and use the adorable top handles.
What we’re loving about this mini bag is the top flap. You’ll be able to run for the subway or get down on the dance floor with ease- your precious belongings aren’t going anywhere.
Louis Vuitton has really cornered the market on playfully structured bags. Is there anything more fun than an alma? Of course there is- it’s the Alma bb! like most minis- this works well as either a crossbody or lower shoulder bag. The interior is surprisingly roomy and can fit most wallets, a phone, keys, and even a modest make-up bag.
We love the long zipper on the Alma- especially on the mini size. Being able to open up the bag from top to (almost) bottom makes for an easier time packing and unpacking your goodies.
We love our larger Balenciaga bags for their easy going, soft leather and roomy interior. But this shrunken down version really lets the shape of the city bag strut its stuff.
We love the mirror dangling ever so gracefully from the front of this piece- plus the fact that it fits perfectly into the front pocket. This bag’s leather is every bit as soft and flexible as its larger counterpart, but you may not want to compromise the shape of your adorable mini. Stick to the basics, and you’ll be good to go.
Choose how to wear this one- slung over your shoulder, crossbody, or hold it by the top handles with their signature Balenciaga stitching.
We’re not playing favourites here- but there’s so much to love about this Dolce & Gabbana staple. It’s not as easily recognizable to the average observer as some designer classics- making it kind of an exclusive “when you know, you know” item among fashionistas.
The structured silhouette gives it a distinct flair all its own- and D&G is constantly updating the exterior of this bag. You can find it in wild hues and patterns, or a tasteful neutral shade, always accompanied by a flash of leopard in the lining.
The interior can handle an average sized wallet, plus a couple essentials. An interior flat pocket and handy mirror certainly sweeten the deal.
The strap is adjustable, but most popularly worn cross body.
