Super short and to the point post: I LOVE FREE GIFTS WITH PURCHASE. Who doesn’t? Thing is and lets face it most of these “freebies” are typically not super great in quality. I feel like Victoria’s Secret on the other hand deserves some credit for consistently releasing nice gifts with purchase. This adorable studded crossbody bag surprised me. I received a email that included this offer of buy 2 bras and get this crossbody bag free. I didn’t think it was going to be an actual nice crossbody bag if I am being honest. I thought it would be flimsy and cheap looking! Uh…No. This bag is so stinkin cute. I should probably let you know that it is no longer available (offer ended on the 26th of March) Overall I am so glad I caught the email that featured this offer. Let me know what stores you think have the best gift with purchases in the comments below!
I found this beautiful fringe crossbody PHONE CASE…yes phone case at Marshalls! This was under $40 and my oh my is it fancy. This is the exact crossbody size and style I love this time of year. When it is just to hot to handle down here less is more in every aspect including accessories. These type of bags make it possible for me to just keep my phone and cards in one place for quick trips. I used to purchase Vera Bradley bags like this becuase at the time they were the only company I knew of that would make a bag to fit your phone and slots for your cards/ID. Now lots of designs are out there! This exact design is discontinued according to casemate It’s worth checking out your local Marshalls for these! As of 6/24 CaseMate is having 50% Rebecca Minkoff sale
Earlier this week I stumbled upon a great bag. I have been looking for a saddlebag to call my own for years but.. never found a good one UNTIL NOW. It didn’t look like anything special hanging on the rack, but after a couple of glances and step forward step backwards I picked the thing up finally. Inspecting it closer I wasn’t overly impressed but I had a good feeling about it. I adjusted the strap length and tried it on… after that it was a swift toss in my cart! When I looked up the complete info. on this bag I was kind of confused by the not so great reviews. (I’ve only had mine for less than a week)… In my opinion this bag is well made, buttery soft and was the answer to downsizing from a tote to a crossbody which is typical of me during the end of spring going into summer. Down south = sweat, humidity and general discomfort: I reach for a easy grab and go style bag this time of year (usually a small crossbody style) I don’t carry very much. I also have a crazy big cell phone-this bag has a pocket in the back that provides easy access to get my phone in and out quick so that was a must. I feel it’s just simple and classic, no tassels all over the place or decortaions, chains logos etc! The fact that this bag is a neutral color was another bonus since I wear lighter colors in the summer (ok I TRY to wear lighter colors in the summer!) The length is perfect on me because it hits right at the hip!! The strap is really soft, most crossbody bags can have such a stiff material. I found this bag in lots of different colors (see links below) around the web, my top is from Target (in store purchase 5/2016) For reference: My bag color is “nutmeg” I can’t find my exact color anywhere online 🙁 Empire Blue Color Saks (39.99 as of 5/21!!) Blue, Black & Bronze Colors Zappos Stone Black & Blue Colors French Connection 42.99 as of 5/21 for Black Last Call
