While I do have a few larger handbags that I love, I have a terrible habit of filling them and filling them…and then abandoning them. There’s a good stash of handbags in my room, half of which I’m avoiding because of the sheer quantity of random stuff I’ve jammed into them – like a stack of receipt-filled fashion piñatas.
Enter the mini crossbody. My favourites are the box shape. Right now, I can fit my mobile phone (complete with the oversized ‘lumee’ case), my wallet, a notebook, lipstick, mascara, memory cards, lipgloss, pens, and keys – random essentials. Of course, I always attempt to overfill it, but the bag resists, thus my life has less clutter.
And we haven’t even mentioned the biggest win of using a crossbody handbag!
You arms are free to rave – perfect for a day in the life of anyone who does things with their hands and arms. You can collect groceries with two hands, open doors with two hands – you can even hail a cab with both hands…though that might seem a little too desperate/aggressive.
