Soft lambskin leather plus a clean canvas plus just a dash of hardware plus three color choices: the Elizabeth and James Cynnie bag adds up to a great frugal snob option. There aren’t any superfluous details, but the finishing touches make it feel special. Like the lizard-embossed accents and the slinky box-chain handle that hangs casually around the bag when you utilize the long strap (wear it shoulder or crossbody). Metal feet give it a sense of structure, and the closure is simple yet unique.
All in all, this has cool edge for a daily bag. It also doesn’t warrant any worry whatsoever. Nude champagne is sweet and girly, bright red is feisty and fun, and black goes beyond basic. Carry it to death and don’t fret about having to be precious when you do. Just appreciate how liberating it feels to be carefree. On Shopbop for $545.
