Coach Review! Troupe Tote 16 Micro Bag

Hi everyone! I went to Lululemon this weekend so I'll have a nice fit review Friday coming up at the end of the week! Today's post will focus on micro bags. They are very on trend at the moment and have been for a while. It seems like they aren't going anywhere anytime soon. 

For this post, I'm reviewing Troupe Tote 16 by Coach in deep red. It's currently 50% off! 

This is the first micro bag I've used. It's also a bag from Rent The Runway. I love getting to try out bags without having to buy them, thanks to my sister's account! If you're interested in trying Rent The Runway my sister has a referral code- RTRFAM11D1780. This code is $200 off your first two months of Unlimited ($100 off each month).

Do you ever wonder what really fits into micro bags? These tiny bags only fit your essential, every day items. For me it fits my keys, my three card cases and my iPhone X. I can also squeeze in my inhaler and chapstick if I wanted to, but that's basically it. Forget about a normal size wallet or sunglasses. 

Super cute it is. Practical it is not. There is a bigger version of this bag that's currently half off as well. My co-worker saw the mini version I was carrying and loved it to much, she ordered the large version for herself. I'll take some photos of it when it arrives. 

The handle is so tiny I could barely get my hand through. It's definitely a hand held bag or cross body bag only. I could not fit the handle over my wrist comfortably. The turn lock clasp is a nice detail but I had a hard time actually turning the little knob. The inside is nicely lined with microsuede. The smooth glove tanned leather feels buttery soft and light weight. I love the color. It is a berry red and gives a nice pop to any outfit. The brass colored hardware goes well with the red. Overall I would give this bag 3 out of 5 stars. 

I'm currently lusting over the Willis 18 Top Handle in vermillion. It's a little bit bigger than the Troupe Tote 16. I may order it to see. What are your thoughts on the micro bag trend? Do you have one? 

That's it for me! Hope everyone has a fab Monday!


  1. I really like the color of that Troupe Tote 16 but it is so tiny! Not sure how I feel about the size. And I prefer smaller sized purses. I have only two purses, both by Bed Stu, and love them. I’m super picky when it comes to purses which is why I have only two. I can never find anything that suits all my needs.

  2. It is definitely micro sized. I don't think it would be good as an everyday bag. That is amazing you only have two bags.... It's embarrassing to admit how many I have!

    1. Haha! I think because of my extreme bag pickiness, the two I have suit me. Makes my bank account and husband happy too. :D

  3. That sweater is so pretty­čą░
