Proenza Schouler’s PS11 Mini in Brick and Optic White

Ever since the Proenza Schouler PS11 was introduced some years ago, I’d always preferred it to the PS1. That said, I somehow never really thought of getting one, because I really am not big on crossbody bags. Fast forward to a couple of years later, and I’m still having that debate with myself on whether I will, or won’t get one. I very nearly decided on one, but then as my luck would have it, I preferred the Classic size, but I didn’t like the textured Saffiano-esque leather versions, nor the very muted colours that it came in. The colours that I liked seemed to always be on the PS11 Mini. And now, here I am again, having this debate with myself due to my recent back injury that also affected my neck and shoulders (those of you who follow me on Instagram would already know about this, and my biweekly visits to the chiropractor) and this is why I’m now stuck with having to mostly live in sneakers, and mini bags, both of which, to be honest, weren’t really my thing at all, prior to this unfortunate circumstance. And so here I am once again, with this PS11 Mini because if there’s one thing I love on my bags, it’s textural details, graphic motifs, and colour blocking and this particular baby ticks all the boxes. The only thing that’s keeping me from adding it into my shopping cart just yet, is because I’m wondering whether crossbody bags will add strain to my shoulders and neck, which really sucks because this is the FIRST PS11 that I’ve ever loved THIS MUCH.
