Shopping Find: Crossbody Bag

I am completely in LOVE with my crossbody bag! I've been casually searching for one for about a year now and finally found one this weekend. My Mom gave me one last Christmas, but I wasn't in love with it so she returned it. Here are the specifications I was looking for in a bag:

  • Decent size to hold my wallet, sunglasses case & Blackberry - but not oversized since I'm petite!
  • Zippered top
  • At least one outside pocket - easily accessible & good for travel!
  • An adjustable strap
Lo-and-behold, when I decided on a whim to poke around Marshall's on Saturday afternoon for nothing in particular, I stumbled up on the PERFECT bag for only $16.30 after tax! It matched all my requirements exactly and came in a beautiful cream color. I've used it every day since then and can't get enough of it! :)

The brand is emilie m, which I had never heard of before. Some research after my purchase revealed to me that it's a private-label version of Modani that is ONLY sold at discount shops like Marshall's or T.J. Maxx. (So, uh, why does it say MSRP $45.00 on the tag? Marketing ploy?) It measures approximately 9"x9.5" and the style, according to the label, is chardonnay crossbody. Here's a picture of it:

Isn't it funny how you find things when you're LEAST expecting to? :)

I LOVE my crossbody bag! Its the only purse that I've ever owned that I've worn for more than 3 months. I've had it for a year now and I don't see myself giving it up anytime soon. Its so convenient! :)
