This bag also fulfills both the classic handbag as well as the crossbody bag picks on my list of accessory staples. If you're looking for a more affordable option (at full-price) this crossbody bag from Old Navy has some good reviews and comes in a few colors, although you can never go wrong with black.
Overall I really like this bag and see myself keeping it for a while. It's simple with just enough detail to keep it from being boring, and I like the functionality of it with the removable strap. It's been really great for weekends and times when I've had too little for a full sized tote yet too much for a clutch. Especially if you can get it on sale like I did (the Ann Taylor promotions are frequent), I recommend it.
