I've been wanting a small-ish but still roomy cross body bag for awhile now. The Chanel WOC I have is great but it can only hold my phone and maybe a lipgloss before it feels like it's going to pop open. Actually, speaking of the WOC...mine kept popping open even when barely anything was inside. I had to bring it back to Saks to have it fixed and they said it would take 4-6 months! What a bummer. Anyone with a WOC have similar issues? I know several girls that have WOC's whose button closures seem to be working fine.
Anywhoo, that's neither here nor there. So, I've been wanting a cross body for when I'm post diaper carrying days and also a cute enough bag to travel with that can serve as a multi-purpose bag.
After some browsing online, I came across the Alexander Wang Rockie. I've always loved the Rocco but found it slightly too large and heavy. The Rockie is the mini version of the Rocco and it is adorable! I love the heavy pebbled leather, the studs, the cute rounded zip closure, the detachable strap and the list goes on. But....when I finally found THE bag for me a few months ago, it was completely sold out everywhere in black. After months of waiting, stores finally restocked and guess who has it?
Shopbop.com got it in and with their no tax ($80 savings!) + free 2 day shipping? It was a no brainer!
I just got it in last night and snapped this quick pic before heading out to bible study just to show you what it looks like on. It's so versatile. You can wear it on your wrist, cross body, on the shoulder (as pictured) or just hand carry it. I can see myself wearing this bag with a chic black pencil skirt and heels to dinner but then just as easily, throw it over jeans and a t-shirt to run errands. Can you tell I'm really into my new bag?? LOVE!!
