Dua Lipa was the subject of a few memes on Twitter recently because of her yellow micro bag. One netizen questioned what she puts in it because of its tiny size.
In case you didn’t know, Dua’s bag is from Jacquemus and its called the the Le sac Chiquito. It’s made from smooth suede and it’s only 12 cm x 6 cm in size. Even we’re wondering what you can carry inside. Maybe this is a representation of Dua’s song “IDGAF” because she can’t possibly fit all of her f*cks in that. Either way, if you think this micro bag is cute and want to cop it, allow us to suggest some items you can put in.

Who doesn’t want to glow on the go? The Watt’s Up! stick highlighter has a smaller version you can throw in the Jacquemus bag. This is perfect for when you need to amp up your highlight before going to the club after work. This has a cream-to-powder formula, too, so it’s easy to blend wherever you are. Available at SM Megamall.
Decor Craft Inc Mini Flask Keychain
This has a dual purpose: It will hold your keys and store one fluid ounce of alcoho—err, water. (Yeah, water.) So don’t forget this keychain at home if you don’t want to get locked out! Available at Quirks, Power Plant Mall.
Clean & Clear Oil Control Film
If you have oily skin, it might be best to bring blotting papers with you. This booklet is small enough to squeeze in your micro bag. This is a steal too since you’ll get 60 sheets for less than P150. Available at Watsons.
Nokia 105 2017 Dual Sim
Sorry, but your iPhone X might not fit in the Le sac Chiquito. So you’ll either leave your phone or transfer your sim to a smaller phone. Our suggestion is the Nokia 105 which is reminiscent of the phone you had in early ’00s. It might not have a camera or apps, but at least you’ll have a phone to contact your friends and family with when you’re out. Available on Lazada.
Coins, cards, and IDs
You may be wondering why I didn’t put a wallet here. Here’s the thing: You can just throw all of them in the bag. It’s like a wallet with handles anyway. It’ll also give you a reason not to let the bag out of your sight.
