Fancy Finds

Fancy Finds #19

I’m always on the lookout for great bags. I had a hole in my wardrobe that I had been trying to fill for a while. I wanted (needed?) a cross-body bag that I could fit a decent amount of stuff into, but was still small enough to wear out and about for a day of shopping, running around, and or sight seeing. You’d think that would be an easy find. You’d think…

Have you met me? Do you know how picky I am? Not only does said bag have to be cute and made well, it also needs to be affordable. I’m frugal. I love Coach bags, but I just don’t want to drop $400 on one of the Dinky bags (that’s the official name). The price goes up for the snazzier/flashier ones.

As I was checking out the latest J. Crew release, my heart went aflutter. I saw the bag that met all my criteria. I went to the store to check it out in person. Ashley version of the Quality check. It passed muster. The most difficult decision was deciding which color to get. There are so many great options. I WANT THEM ALL!!!!

What color did I get? Festival Red. I’m trying to add a bit of color to my life.

At just $128 for a gorgeous Italian made leather bag, I fear these will go fast. I have noticed that the olive color has already disappeared from the website. Get thyself to J. Crew and check out this bag. You will not be disappointed. There is a color option for everyone: Classic or daring. Just do it.


Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend!
