Ever since I was mugged a couple months back and some guy tried to steal my handbag, it slightly changed my style and preference when it comes to bags. Now-a-days when I shop for a new purse, the first thing I ask is, is the strap long enough to be worn as a cross-body? I know the chances of being mugged twice in your own neighborhood are pretty slim (knock on wood), but for now, especially when I walk alone, this is the style I prefer. Also a tip: don’t walk with your phone in your hand. Luckily that time, they only ran off with my phone, and not my Chanel Cerf (and iPad, marc jacobs wallet, minkoff pouches, mcqueen scarf, etc and etc)
One in particular that I’m coveting is the Proenza Schouler PS1 Chain Wallet! The body of the bag is made of genuine leather and features a fold-over flap top that pops open to reveal a spacious interior compartment with a mirror, card slots, and zip pocket. There’s also an easy access exterior zip pocket. The chain link shoulder strap is detachable, which is a huge plus if you want to use this as a clutch!
It’s just the perfect bag to complement that on-the-go style! Totally perfect for all those hands-free worthy occasions- have you ever tried to carry a handbag on your arm, while carrying a coffee carrier and an umbrella.. in the wind?
