Mini-Crossbody Bag Love For Spring

When love is in the air, it's hard to resist--especially when it's a cute mini-crossbody bag! I'm guilty of snagging the first few samples from my own line because they're surprisingly practical. You can fit wallet, keys, cellphone, lip gloss, sunglasses and if you're like me, loose change, pens and a few other necessities and just dash out the door!

Will you be wearing or resisting the mini crossbody?

In the press this week: Tim Gunn thinks Kate Moss wore it best, but then so did Jessica Alba and Kylie Minogue.

Why? Because they're practical {and cute}!

And yes, they're arriving in our shop over the next few days in a dozen new colors + a few limited editions 
like the aqua lizard and leopard!

Happy weekend style lovers!

I love the way mini crossbody bags look but have resisted so far just because I don't know if I could ever make do with something so tiny. I pretty much always carry a camera of some sort. Your new styles look gorgeous!

Happy weekend Mary Jo!

OH!!! I REALLY REALLY WANT/NEED a MiniCrossbody!!!! I've got to check out your latest wares :)

Alicia@ eco friendly homemaking said...

These are all so cute but I don't think they would work for me. You should see all of the stuff I carry in my BIG bag!!

Pamela RG said...

Very chic Mary Jo. I like the leopard and lizard bags. I love wearing the cross body bags because they are so functional. Have a good weekend.

Mary Jo, the aqua lizard is too pretty! I'm a HUGE fan of mini crossbody bags, I love their practicality and youthfulness. Can't wait to check out your new line, I bet I'm going to want every single piece.

Also, absolutely yes to drinks! I've been meaning to email you about meeting up. I have to warn you though, I may come with two tots in tow. Will email you more details. Have a great weekend friend :)

I waffle between loving my small cross body and needing more space! Right now I'm lugging around a big bag, but last week I squeezed a few necessities into a small bag.

Couture Carrie said...

Beautiful roundup!

i used to have one of these but got rid of it years ago. stupid stupid. everything always comes back; when will i learn?!?

A BRIT GREEK said...

I love the mini cross over bag, I've had a small selected collected over the years, although design wise, I'm loving the mix and match colour!
Plus it's more dainty than constantly heaving a big 'ole tote/shopper! I've been told to carry less too!

Fashion-Bridge said...

I have a couple of crossbody bags and I'll be definitely wearing them a lot. It's a perfect, stylish yet comfortable model. Absolutely great for summer. The bags from your collection look superb!

Happy sunday dear Mary Jo

I LOVE mini crossbody bags, but they never hold all of my daily essentials. That said...I've been eyeing a cute one from Rebecca Minkoff. :)

I think in some circumstances they work. If you are planning going out dancing or example they are perfect!

I love cross body bags! Sometimes I don't feel like lugging around a big purse and these hold just enough. I received one for my birthday.

Style Diary Of A Fashion Fanatic said...

Hi Mary Jo!!!!!
I do like the cross body bags. My mom actually bought me a Versace cross body style bag at Harrod's in London around 1998.... I still wear it from time to time and love it!!!!!!
How have you been?
Hope you had a great weekend!!!!!

I have quite a few.
Love them because they're so useful
