Martha Stewart, 81, is downsizing when it comes to her accessories—she's saying goodbye to her handbags and hello to a chic set of phone cases from Bandolier (starting at $78).

In a new interview with Vogue, the businesswoman divulged all of her recent picks in the world of fashion, and she cheekily said to interviewer Kristen Bateman, “What are handbags?” Stewart then added, “I have a Bandolier phone case, which is my pocketbook.”

Clearly Stewart stashed the purses away and never looked back, and according to Michele Marie PR, the television personality is a fan of a few different Bandolier styles, including the Donna side slot crossbody in tan/gold ($98), the Julian pebble leather crossbody in greige/silver ($108) and the Kimberly adjustable crossbody in ivory/gold ($128).

The phone case is also available in a few different styles on Amazon as well, including the Emma crossbody ($98), the Hailey crossbody ($108) and the Sarah crossbody ($108).

Stewart isn't the only celeb who's fallen for the Bandolier. A couple months back, Blake Lively was seen taking a selfie with her hubby, Ryan Reynolds, at the Racecourse Ground in Wrexham, Wales. While doing so, we couldn't help but notice that when she held up her phone, it was encased in none other than the Bandolier Casey Phone Case.

Meanwhile, other celebs like Kaley Cuoco, Taylor Swift, Zendaya, Eva Longoria and more have been touting the stylish accessories as well.

Not only do they feature crossbody straps and nifty pockets for your smartphones, but they also feature a card pocket with a snap closure, so that they can double as a wallet.

Looks like we won't be needing our handbags anymore either.
