Lately I've been going off about crossbody bags. For months I've been looking at them, thinking some are too big, some are too small... do I really want another basic brown or black shade, or something that will pop.. Basically I was indecisive, and the little (okay, very little) logical voice in me said, "if you don't see one you love then you just don't need it".
Then, during one of my random looks on the Bloomingdales website, I saw a new addition from Rebecca Minkoff - the Jellybean Crossbody Bag.
The details, courtesy of Bloomingdales:
- Shoulder strap
- Zip closure; lined
- 2 front zip pockets, 6 credit card slots, 1 slip pocket
- 8” L x 1.5” W x 5” H; 22” strap drop
- Web ID: 679473
The material is a soft, pebbled leather. I chose the bag in the shade of Jungle Green with gold hardware, mostly because the Pantone Color of the Year is Emerald. The leather is pliable, and you can actually get quite a bit in there.
The main thing that drew me towards this bag is the three different sized zippered pockets to keep your items organized. Since, usually with small pouches things can get disorganized very quickly, this was a huge selling point for me.
While you may be used to the blue with black polka dot lining in your Rebecca Minkoff bag, this one comes lined with a black and white pattern (the dust bag also matches the lining).
