Bucklette redefines the art of minimalism
Now that I think about it, my purse is perhaps one of the most abused and neglected denizens of my accessory world. There are "things" in there that get carried around for months without ever being used - medicines, a spare (dead!) cellphone, keys that open unidentified locks, unused jewelery. And the list gets faithfully updated as I discover one more useless item to thrown in and arm myself for an imagined emergency.
Given this background, accepting a purse like the Bucklette is a really big deal for yours truly. The Bucklette, designed by Sandy Alexander, is a stylish hands-free alternative to a purse that clips on to your belt and has room only for the bare essentials- a lipstick, couple of keys, some cash and ID. With the Bucklette you can get really minimalistic - atleast during those times when you want to roam really light.
Available either as a belt buckle ($112) or as a clip-on ($92). Now someone convince me that my purse is indeed passé.
