ACCESSORIES REPORT: Cross-body Carry-All

Oh versatility, something fashion lovers almost unanimously covet. Similar to a four leaf clover, this is a rare find when searching through the vast field of opportunity at any local shopping center. When it is spotted the clouds open and angels are heard softly singing at the same moment white doves are released into the sky. I may have gotten a little carried away, but the truth is I do jump for joy when I find something so diversely purposed that it can contribute to my wardrobe in many different ways. This Fashionista’s large Tory Burch cross-body bag is an all-purpose essential for any trendsetter on the go this summer.

The reasons a Fashionista can form her mind to carry this bag are endless. School, work, shopping, running errands, the list can go on and on. When you really size up this bag the best feature is its size. Not too generous that it can’t be used as a cross-body resting gently on a hip, not too dwarfed to look silly on one shoulder or carried on your arm as pictured. This bag is an investment you won’t regret. I’ve even come to the conclusion it’s the Goldilocks of handbags.

But wait, we have left out the beginning of the fairy tale, Goldilocks first finds the perfect morsel. And our fashionable Goldilocks just loves candy. Arm candy to be precise. This Fashionista think David Yurman fits just right, and I could not agree with her more. Add a piece from Gorjana or Marc by Marc Jacobs you’ll be too full off candy for desert. My trick to stacking bracelets is to mix it up. Mixing higher end pieces with your trend right finds makes an unparalleled impact. Don’t be afraid to be adventurous and try something out of the ordinary, fashion is supposed to be fun after all.

Spotted: For fall 2013 ready-to-wear, 3.1 Phillip Lim presented several new versions of a larger cross-body bag on the runway. Be sure to jump on this trend with a multifaceted approach and carry one of these bags in a way that complements your style.
