There are two types of people in this world: those who carry large bags and those who carry small bags. Yes, only those two; we don't make the rules. The former typically carry backpacks, leather handbags, or even backpacks filled with anything and everything you could ever need in the ordinary instant—think Mary Poppins' bag without the magic. The latter go for a more carefree approach—just the bare necessities and nothing more. Now, neither one of these two archetypes is better than the other, but we must admit that come summer time, we are small-bag people. That's why as the sunny season approaches, we've got Beyond the Vines' new Micro Dumpling Bag on our wish lists.
Beyond the Vines' Micro Dumpling Bag Is Perfect for Summer
Beyond the Vines is a Singaporean fashion brand which opened its first Manila branch in 2019 They're known for their simple but elegant approach to clothing. They create styles that are versatile and fuss-free when worn, but make use of thoughtfully made silhouettes and fabrics. Their Dumpling Bag is a cult-favorite that comes in several sizes—the XL is a great choice for busy days when you’re carrying a ton and the XS is a practical pick for every day use. But the Micro version of the carrier is what you need if you like to carry just the essentials.
Like the larger versions of the Dumpling Bag, the Micro sports the same slouchy, textured style and lightweight nylon fabric—it’s also waterproof, so you’ll have no problem bringing it to the beach. The itty-bitty purse can be used as a mini crossbody or handbag. It’s about as small as a little makeup pouch, making it perfect for holding just the necessities: your phone, a card case, a coin purse, a lipstick, and so on. What more do you really need on those laidback summer days? Plus, the bag has a flexible and stretchy construction that means despite its tiny size, you won’t have to struggle to squeeze in all your essentials. Plus, as with the other Dumpling Bags, the Micro can be folded into a compact size that’s ideal for traveling and storage.

The Micro Dumpling Bag is available at Beyond the Vines' stores in Shangri-La Plaza, Power Plant Mall, and SM Mall of Asia.
