Prediction: Look Ma, No Hands

One trend that I've been thinking about for a little while and noticed quite a few times at Fashion Week was a conspicuous lack of purses. Stylish ladies are forgoing carryalls in favor of the just the bare essentials carried casually in their pockets or in a belt pouch (chic fanny pack anyone?). Jenna Lyons carried just her keys on her belt loop and Amber Venz accessorized with an adorable Chanel belt.

I like the Givenchy's necklace version of the pouch. Although I can't get on board with a Blackberry holder, it's 2012. DVF also serves up a minimalist modern belt that would look very cool on a girl with no hips. Chanel and Mulberry have great options as well.

Too funny, I noticed the same exact thing! I'm not so sure I am completely ditch my bag... I have attachment issues. But for those who can bring the bare minimum, why not?! I love what Amber is wearing! and that Chanel belt is pretty major!!!
