Snob Essentials

Donna Karan Crosstown Messenger Bag


I liked the bigger shoulder version from a few seasons ago but I am in LOVE with this smaller size with the zipper trimmed flap. Is this not the ultimate city bag? Way chic and totally hip, you will live in this bag. It is the perfect size and hangs right below your hips, where you want your cross body to fall. The hardware detail on the adjustable strap is icing on the cake, making the messenger a bit more fashion-y than just purely pragmatic. I can totally see Karan running through airports with this on (with gladiator flat sandals, of course). This is exactly the kind of stuff her empire was founded on, fashion that fit in your life rather than the other way around. A MUST MUST HAVE especially for the mom snobs out there. At Bergdorf Goodman $795.

  1. I got this bag last week and am in LOVE. It’s the perfect size for quick errands when zipped and the perfect size for travel or day trips when unzipped. When unzipped, the bottom expands from 5 inches to 9 inches!

    I like that it’s not flashy or logo’ed. And I have been getting tired of holding my purse in the left crook of my arm. I’ve been holding bags in my elbow for 4 years!

    It feels great to have both arms free after all this time.
