Welcome back to a fashion flash that’s not only fun, but hands-free FUN!
I just got back from a wonderful trip to Brittany (for a spa review, no less) and am feeling quite chill. But then again, I love to travel! That may be one of the reasons I’ve always hated shoulder bags, because I need my hands free to shlepp my suitcase and hold my iPhone… The crossbody bag is the only way to go for me, and I’ll admit, I’ve got quite a collection going.
I love these compact bags with their long shoulder strap that allows you wear them across your body, keeping your hands free for important stuff like… eating buckwheat crèpes in the rain. But more on that soon. Are you ready for a scroll-down accessories party?
Let me be clear from the get-go: I never said that your new crossbody bag had to be roomy! I’m a bit in lust with this mini bag by Furla:
Furla Metropolis Crossbody Bag Multicolor, approx. US$ 250
Pink and elegant… but not too pink, if you know what I mean:
Destiny Leather Camera Bag, approx. US$ 60 Franken at Monsoon
Oooh, I like the saddle-baggy (that’s a word, right?) look of this one here:
Love Moschino Crossbody Bag (with heart-shaped embroidery!), approx. US$ 180 at Manor Switzerland
This one here’s a bit loud, but still wearable:
Get Down to Quirk Bag, approx. US$ 80 at Modcloth
So sunny and happy!
Miriam Leather Cross-Body Bag, approx. US$ 170 at Anthropologie
Velvet Crossbody bag with a kitty design, approx. US$ 25 at ASOS
Here’s another great day-to-night bag that would go with a bunch of outfits and styles:
Dhloe Leather Bag with twisted Knot, approx. US$ 90 at Dune
It it’s got a pompom on it, I WANT IT. And there’s a bunch of them here, so it may just be a no-brainer for me, personally:
Leather Crossbody Bag, approx. US$ 50 at Zara (also available in blue)
Why hell..OOOO, beautiful bag:
Sonia Rykiel SERIE 87 Camera Bag, approx. US$ 600 at Sarenza
This beauty is perfect for both day and night (when you’re usually up to dramatic things, anyway… I HOPE!):
Quilted bag with chain, approx. US$ 80 at Mango
Oh god… why did I just have to discover that the gorgeous bucket bag by Mansur Gavriel is now available in a mini edition, too? Goodbye, June paycheck!
Mansur Gavriel Mini Bucket Bag, approx. US$ 500 at MyTheresa
Sorry, but I just couldn’t resist… I tried so hard!
Aldo Terrizzi Rainbow Bag, approx. US$ 60 at Zalando
You’re more of a boho babe? This vintage-looking bag by Italian brand Campomaggi could be your jam:
Leather and cotton shoulder bag by Campomaggi, approx. US$ 220 at Globus Switzerland
This one’s beautifully minimal, but still pretty elegant:
Karen Walker Suzi Round Crossbody Bag, approx. US$ 300 at Shopbop
I think my work may be done here for now. I hope you spotted your new favourite crossbody bag… and that you spent the last two minutes or so scrolling AND trying to think of how many of your current bags can be worn diagonally. OR IF YOU NEED A NEW ONE.
This could have gone on for hours, but my kids are yelling that they’re hungry and want dinner. DON’T THEY REALISE IT’S ALL ABOUT THE BAGS?
Have a great day and check back here at Hey Pretty soon, ya hear?
