Louis Vuitton Mini Pochette // What Fits Inside?

Recently I hauled my Louis Vuitton Mini Pochette in Damier Ebene, which I want to go a little bit more into detail about.

I wasn't sure how big it was actually going to be because I'd never seen it in person but I went with it anyway. I wanted something to put my make up and other bits and bobs inside when I'm carrying my Louis Vuitton Alma BB. Right away I have to tell you - this baby fits perfectly inside the Alma BB.

I do carry quite a bit of stuff inside of the Mini Pochette, I mainly use it as a catch-all to keep the bag organized. I hardly ever zip it up because I find it's just easy access if I keep it open like that, I can just take out whatever I need and quickly put it back in.

1. What fits inside & Size Comparison

I do carry quite a bit of stuff inside on an everyday basis using it as a catch-all in my bag. If I put the things in the right way, it will easily zip up, but if I put them all in completely unorganized, it's a little harder to zip up but does still work.

I usually carry a lighter, one or two lipsticks, a few medicines, hair bobbles, a nail file, earbuds, chewing gum and some sort of wet wipes for my hands.

You can see compared to the Alma BB it is a little smaller which makes it perfect to put inside and use it for your cosmetics or random things. When I put it inside, I fit a few more things inside the bag like my phone, my key pouch with keys attached, a mini deodorant and a few more bits and bobs.

As a size reference, I have an iPhone 6 which fits perfectly inside even with a thin case on it. There is quite a bit of room on each side of the Pochette, it's just that the opening isn't wide enough so you fit it in snug but it works.

I take my photos with my iPhone so I could only show you a comparison with a phone case I had lying around.

If you have an iPhone 6 Plus like my fiancé does, it does not fit inside. The Plus is quite a lot bigger than the Mini Pochette as you can see.

My fiancé was not at home so I'm comparing it to an old phone case of his. So an iPhone Plus is a little bit smaller than you see in the photo but still, it does not fit inside which is a shame if you want to use it as a handbag. I recommend going with the regular Pochette NM if you want to use it as a handbag as well as a catch-all.

2. Versatility

The Mini Pochette has a little gold chain and two D-rings on each side which makes it extremely versatile and that's one thing I absolutely love about it.

You can either end up wearing it as a little handbag with the strap attached on each side, carry it in your hands or in the crook of your arm. If you attach the chain clip to one side, it turns into a wristlet for clubbing or a date night with your boyfriend. Personally, I cannot wait to wear it like that!

And if you wanted to use it as an actual shoulder or crossbody bag when you go to an amusement park or such, you can take the shoulder strap from the Alma BB and attach it to the Mini Pochette and voilà, you have a shoulder/crossbody bag.

If you want to shop designer, I recommend Farfetch.com, especially if you are in Europe. Their range is fantastic, they have amazing return policies and their sales are amazing. If you want to sign up there, you can use my referral link here and get 40€ off of your first order :)
