Sometimes you have to see to believe. I was prepared to slob this bag until I eyed it up-close. Cheap and chic has never rung so true! With an easy north-south rectangular shape and straps you don’t have to think about, it’s the most convenient on-the-go-bag I’ve see in awhile. I have the orange (less juicy-bright, more muted coral-rust), and I’m addicted to it for daily errands – maybe because it fits my MacBook. It seems I’m not the only one – I witnessed more than a few fashion editors toting it between shows over Fashion Week in NYC!
I suppose I shouldn’t have been surprised. With ultra-minimal hardware, it’s surprisingly lightweight, the additional body strap is convenient when the load piles up, and the leather quality is really nice for this price. And now it’s snob-approved! Choose between offbeat orange, easy black, glamorous anthracite, and classic camel, and you’ll find yourself using it more often than some of your quadruple-digit-priced bags. Simply a must-have if you’re on a budget and looking for a bag under $200. At Banana Republic for $130.
Pair with: Toughen up this neutral masculine-feminine tote with another affordable option. You’ll be grateful you’re wearing Vera Wang Lavender Label’ comfortable lace-up Rafael boots on days you’re scampering all over town. On ShopBop for $425.
