‘What’s in My Mini Bag?’ PurseBop Challenge

It’s time for some real mini fun! We are excited to set up a challenge for our fabulous community of bag lovers called – ‘Pursebop Whats In My Mini Bag?’ or #pursebopwimmb

We may love mini bags for being tiny and adorable, but every once in a while we catch ourselves thinking “what can I really fit into this thing?!“.  Well it’s time to find out! Let’s examine the topic of minis from a ‘what’s in my bag perspective’.

For the next two weeks, we want you to photograph as many mini bags as you have, from any brand, including your WOC’s … and share whats in them! Be as creative as you can and post your pictures to the “PurseBop What’s in My Mini Bag?”( #pursebopwimmb) thread on BopTalk. Share your shots on your Instagram pages and tag your friends to join in. The best and most informative pictures will be nominated for a final voting round. You all will vote to select your favorite #pursebopwimmb shots to decide our top 3 winners! And what’s even more exciting is we will have very special prizes for each. Niloti Geneve will sponsor this challenge and give each of our winners one of their exquisite crocodile bag charms.

Specific rules for the challenge are listed below. For now, take a look at this Hermes #pursebopwimmb inspiration from PurseBop and BopTalk Celebrity StylishSheba. We have compared capacity pictures for the Birkin 25 and the Kelly 25 with details of whats in each.
