What do you think?  Will you be leaving your gigantic handbags behind this fall to lighten your load with one of these adorable mini bags?  How much is TOO much to spend on a handbag?  Would you ever think of splurging on a mini bag, or is there just not enough bang for your buck??  We'd love to hear your thoughts!
