Insomniac Sale Picks: Crossbody Bags

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Shelley requested a few picks for crossbody bags, so here we go:

Piazza Rustico Saddle Bag

Piazza Rustico Saddle Bag – was $139.99, now $79.99

Oh, the gorgeous minimalism of this bag. At 11.5″ x 8.25″ x 2.5″ it’s on the small side for someone like me, but still roomy enough for everyday use. The long leather crossbody strap is faced with a bit of webbing. I’ve got a bag that has a similar strap and LOVE it since it keeps the bag from sliding around on my shoulder. This bag could be equally great with Boho casual or preppy business attire. For a similar look in faux leather, check out this Relic bag.

The Sak Silverlake Crossbody

The Sak Silverlake Crossbody – was $129, now $89

Definitely more of a rocker/Boho feel to this bag, but it’s still quite versatile. At 11″ x 9.75″ x 3″ this bag is small to medium, but could definitely be an everyday bag. Closes with a magnet in the flap, which is my absolute favorite style of bag closure – no fussing with zippers, but still a relatively secure design. Also comes in red, brown, and cognac with silver and turquoise studs.

fossil keyper

Fossil Keyper Mini Flap Crossbody – was $68, now $36.99

The bargain of the night, and also vegan-friendly, this smaller bag has a fun vintage flair to it. At 8.5″ x 1″ x 7″ it’s rather wee, but could still hold a slim wallet, phone, and keys at the least. Also comes in a quirky bee print, abstract pastels, and what look like trumpets. There is some variation in price from print to print.

Rebecca Minkoff Logan  Crossbody – was $395, now $199

A splurge for many, but I’m including it because you’ve seen me carry the black version of this bag about 6 million times. It’s one of my absolute favorite possessions. The bag is large enough for someone like me who carries a set of encyclopedias and a minifridge with her wherever she goes, but doesn’t feel or look huge and bulky. (13″ x 12.5″ x 6″) I will admit that I took this bag to NYC last year and it turned out to be heavy for a week’s worth of 8-hour walking days, but for everyday use, it’s just perfect. And I’m dying over this gorgeous red version.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for crossbody bags:

  1. eBags –  More than 1,300 crossbody options at a variety of price points. Swooning over this rugged mini messenger.
  2. Hobo International – They can be spendy, but all Hobo bags are beautifully made. This minimalist crossbody is gorgeous.
  3. Lucky Brand – With a definite Boho vibe, this line is lousy with crossbodies. Also check 6pm for past season offerings.
  4. And, of course, THRIFT STORES! This style may be trendy but it’s also timeless, so don’t discount secondhand sources. (thethriftshopper.com can help you locate stores near you.)

    If you’re a fan of bargain hunting and you’re OK with a leather bag that isn’t pristine, there are a TON of these to be had on ebay. It’s great if you know you like certain brands or colors and you’re too impatient or picky to troll the thrift stores for the perfect bag.

    I love cross body bags and one of my favourites is a Lucky Brand bag with a definite boho vibe.
