I love my mini pochette! I had a regular one that never got used. For me, the mini pochette is the perfect size to use as my wallet. I have a little credit card/money clip thing inside of it that holds my cards and cash, my lip balm, extra rubber band and blackberry. I like the size because it's nice and small if I'm using another bag to just use it as my wallet and have my phone elsewhere, but when I need to, I can put my phone in there and go. For my purposes, I actually found the regular pochette too big or too small. Everything was either just floating around in there or I couldn't fit what I wanted to.
I have both: mini pochette in the Trunks & Bags version and the Mono pochette. I actually do not use my pochette very much but I would always keep it because it can be used as a small accessory bag inside a larger purse.
However, I use my mini pochette all of the time!!! I keep receipts, cards, coupons, stamps, a Palm PDA, and other misc. things inside of the mini pochette, so I find it very useful!!!
i have both..
really depends on that you intend to use it for..
the mini can hold essentials for inside a purse, and for running quick errands.. plus, you gotta love that golden wristlet chain!
the pochette can hold MORE stuff, and be carried on its own to dinners/nights out & such...
I love my mini. I didn't care for the regular one. I use it as a wristlet / larger wallet type. It fits in some pockets, or DH's jackets if I tire of carrying it. I like that it holds a lipstick, cell, cash, and credit cards, and license. The regular one was too big, but too small. Awkward size for me.
