I’m having a cross body bag moment right now. As someone who constantly runs around town, racing from one event to another, sometimes a shoulder bag can be a complete pain (especially as someone who has the smallest shoulders known to man). A cross body/messenger bag is a chic option for days when you’re just too busy to keep hiking your purse up on your shoulder every time you dip down to pick something up. Busy moms, people who haul things, shoppers: I’m talking to you directly.
Rather than schlep a messenger bag that has a collegiate feel, I’m really passionate about this rocker chic snake-embossed cross body from Botkier, one of my favorite lines. The glazed texture is incredibly luxe and the features are very backstage pass: lacing details, metal grommets, bronze hardware. Inner pockets and storage are key features of these bags so in addition to looking edgy cool you’ll also be completely organized.
It’s time to go hands-free with attitude. I suggest adding a little sexy bite to your look with this gorgeous cross body.
