For the past few years, fashion has been playing a little game with us we like to call "just how big can purses get before people start realizing they're actually carrying duffel bags to work?" We know this trend is dying hard, but we're sick of carrying a bag that weighs more than we do - the straps leave welts in our shoulders and it takes 20 minutes to find our keys at the end of the day. So recently, we've been looking for an antidote - a purse of reasonable to small size, that's cute, and that, more importantly, isn't going to give us scoliosis. So imagine our joy when we came across this little cutie at Topshop today. It's just the right size - big enough for our keys, wallets and phones but small enough that we could find all said items easily. The strap is long enough to fit comfortably over one shoulder or across the body - a look we've really been loving recently. And for night, you can just unhook the strap and carry it as a clutch. The purse comes in four different colors, but our favorite is the mustard - it'll go perfectly with Fall's heather grays and dark purples, but we could just as easily picture it with a sweet little summer dress. So do your shoulders a favor and nab this bag. -- HAYLEY PHELAN

The Best New Striped Tees
Horizontal striped shirts--particularly those classic Bretons (that Coco Chanel used to wear) have definitely been having a moment over the past couple of years--a moment that no one (especially not us) wants to see end. There are more than a few of us Fashionista editors who just can't seem to stop buying them. As ubiquitous as they've become, we still want to wear striped shirts all the time. But who wants to be dressed just like every other stripe fiend walking down the street? Not us. Fortunately, designers seem to have recognized this need for cute, versatile striped shirts that have a little something different.
