Love all this! I just did a similar edit for wedding guest dressing....got my eye on a sequin Dries Van Norten pouch now!

I want the Attersee pouch, so pretty!

May I add to the list the Maria La Rosa Game and mini Game? A bit pricey but absolutely stunning. I couldn’t decide on which color! Obsessed with the color matched chain straps. I found a shop in the US selling them because I was afraid of Italian import duties but highly recommend browsing her e-commerce site, https://www.marialarosa.it/en/collections/shop-must-have

I've been avoiding the pouch, but after reading your concise post with the selection of beautiful pouches, I'm fired up to go buy at least one. Thank you!

Thank you so much, Becky! I’m a relatively new subscriber (via Brent Neale 🍄) and have loved reading your Sunday morning musings. I have never owned a pouch in my life and you convinced me to take the plunge tonight and get TWO of the ones that you shared. Not to mention, I was doing the Lord’s work for you and spent over an hour searching for Sofia’s Neo L19 Pouch Bag! I found it in a variety of colors but, alas, white was not to be found. But back to what I DID FIND and BUY...the cute APC gold pouch and am hoping that the zipper is better than what Forky had with the one at the APC store. I also bought my first Pasticcino! I was all set to grab the pink sequined one but then the new Fuschia raffia Pasticcino caught my eye. I cannot wait to see how I feel without something on my shoulder! Thank you again!

I've never carried a pouch in my life. I ordered one today. Loved this whimsical, great topic for a Sunday Fun Day!

Oooh, I LOVE the Pasticcino! And this topic. My favourite in my own collection is the "sissy" bag from Clare V. I have it in strawberry snake skin like here:

I just bought a sequined Pasticcino -- who knew that's what my Sunday morning would involve! Whoo!

And I apparently have been wanting a wee little pouch-like thing recently, because I went into an APC store after that gold bag caught my eye from the street. I likely would have walked out with it if the zipper hadn't been so sticky and irritating. Nothing frustrates me more than a bad zipper (I once took scissors to a nylon bag when the zipper got stuck because I realized I was never using it again after that, so...).

Love pouches of all kinds! I have way too many. Not sure if you've ever seen the Aloha pouches in person but they are almost papery yet totally waterproof. I wouldn't say they could be used as a clutch because they are very thin and have no structure whatsoever. I have some from when they did a collab w Samudra and they are GREAT for travel or for a wet swimsuit or for sunscreen, but not for the use mentioned above. I would say maybe an old Celine bi-color pouch or an Anya Hindmarch pouch would be a better option in this case. Just my two cents!

I’ve been using cheap see through bags to hold all the things in my tote, and just realized I could be carrying something cute, that would spark joy. Headed over to the Real Real now.

My purse pouch (a Clinique free gift) recently broke and I’ve been needing an upgrade. This was timely thank you.

Thank you! One of the ones you share here was just perfect for me. And just the other day my closet turned up nothing fresh and fun in this category. It had been 10 years since a purchase.
