So last week I happened to be at the mall (nice day, needed to get out of the house) and of course, I had to check out one of my guilty pleasures--Forever 21. I peruse F21 online often, but sometimes I like to go into the store and actually see in person some of the items that may catch my attention online. At times I'm pleasantly surprised and other times...let's just say I'm so happy I didn't press "check out". Meanwhile--while browsing the store, I came across this ADORABLE crossbody bag. I'd noticed it online a couple weeks ago, and though I'd thought it was cute, something didn't move me to buy it. Well looking at it face-to-face, I fell in love with it! It is so me. Now let me say this, I am sometimes a tad leery of all of the faux leathers out there. Which is one of the reasons I didn't buy it online. By the way, what is with all of this faux leather that I'm seeing in shoes and accessories, and they're priced at like 60+ bucks. Like you really have to read the fine print of even some of the popular brands. Look, I'm not a vegan, and though I don't have anything against faux leather (obviously), I refuse to spend over 30 bucks on it....I digress...
To make a long story short, I had to have the bag. It looks great in person, doesn't scream faux, and of course, I love the ethnic "look" of it. Plus, it only cost 22 bucks! I think this will definitely be one of my most carried crossbodies this summer! Even my camera fits into it nicely!
