Bag ladies no longer, women are taking cues from Ms. Badu and packing light. It's all about the sleek, smart clutch. 

Compact to hold just the essentials -- phone, lipstick, credit card, and keys, everything else is secondary.

We've spotted tons of women with envelope sized bags in tow, from tiny palm sized clutches to just a tad over-sized, nestled perfectly beneath the arm.

Satin, quilted, python and prints, take a look at what these woman are holding on to.
