Splurge vs. Steal: Cross-Body Bags

Written by Ashley

Get the look of a designer crossbody bag without sacrificing lunch for a week.

Marc Jacobs & Katherine Kwei are, by far, in my TOP 5 handbag designers of all time. Kwei even has a shout out in my bio (see below, next to my shining face).  I could never feel buyer’s remorse — but if you want to get the color-popped look of a trendy cross-body bag, paired with a mini dress, army jacket & flats for some springtime shopping, you don’t have to break the bank. Olivia + Joy found solace in a traditional, 60’s British turnlock style, in a bold red color that goes well with everything & anything, while Danielle Nicole makes a stellar faux-snake-skin piece that adds color with tassels of all shapes, sizes & hues.
