„A minaudière is a women’s fashion accessory, generally considered a jewelry piece, intended to substitute for an evening bag. Generally metal plated and oblong, sized small enough to be held within the hand, a minaudière is a dainty accessory. The materials used to make it are most frequently rigid, with a metallic finish such as gold or silver.“
I think every well selected female wardrobe should include a minaudière. Because there are these evenings, where you don’t need more than just lipstick and keys… 😉
May I present you my little Vintage Minaudière from Yves Saint Laurent – I wear it with a red mohair sweater by stories and Boyfriend jeans by COS. My favorite December outfit so far…!
Here are some more inspirational „Minaudière“ bags, which I am also having an eye on:
