It hasn’t escaped my attention that I’ve been posting quite a bit about clothing and accessories lately, which seems a bit incongruous considering I’m personally living a capsule wardrobe, no-purchasing lifestyle. But, hey, I know most of you aren’t doing the capsule thing, and, let’s face it, I was born to enable shoppers around the world. I can’t help it, y’all. It’s a gift. Maybe not the gift I had hoped for (global peacemaker, making discoveries worthy of a Nobel Prize), but my own teeny, tiny, precious gift. A style sourcing wunderkind, if you will.
Although I’m obviously not pulling the trigger on any of these bags, I simply must convey my love of the Crossbody bag to you. I wear a crossbody almost every single day – although my daily bag is a no-frills tote, the reason I bought it was the additional longer strap that I always use. Why? Well, for starters, it’s way more comfortable, it leaves me totally hands-free, doesn’t fall off my shoulder like many traditional totes, and I just like ’em, capiche? Let’s face it, if you’re walking around town with a heavy bag slipping off your shoulder, YOU ARE DOING IT WRONG. Plus, spring is the perfect time to wear a crossbody, in my opinion. (It was a bit more difficult getting my bag on and off during the coldest part of winter, when I was bundled in 59 layers. Also, Crossbody Bag + Coat Hood = Frustrating. #themoreyouknow)
But I digress. Occasionally, when I feel like torturing myself, I peruse some of my favorite online retailers, and boy, I’ve noticed some cute bags o’crossbody. So, so many. Please to enjoy.
