Party Girl

Art Deco goes evening in a little after-hours carryall. By Valery Joseph
mikithumb_open.JPGThese days, it can be tough to remember the times when design ruled over status, at least where your handbag was concerned. So, it's refreshing to see a quaint carryall that can still go small on dimensions but big on impact.
Milanese designer Miki Thumb whipped up one of our favorite party-primed totes this season—available in a jewel-toned aubergine suede as well as black or brown patent—this versatile shoulder bag could make anyone want to scale back their belongings and travel a little lighter for day or evening. Boasting a bold, art deco-inspired clasp and elegant, totally timeless design (plus, the of-the-moment extra-long strap can be removed to create a clutch), the diminutive bag can go just about anywhere. And with an equally mini price tag, this small wonder also makes a great gift on the go.
Miki Thumb chain link purse, $269, available in Brooklyn at Butter (in brown and black) , 389 Atlantic Avenue; 718-260-9033. Available in Los Angeles at Vamp Shoes (in brown and purple), 2841 Hyperion Avenue; 323-662-1150.
