I’ve been searching far and wide for the perfect cross body handbag for Fall. I have several large tote and hobo bags that I use all the time, but I am wanting to downgrade to something more compact; something smaller that won’t collect as much stuff and weight. It’s a black hole in those larger purses, I tell you. A pouchette with just enough room for my iPhone, card case and some make-up essentials would a welcome reprieve. The cross body style seems most efficient, ideal for tailgating, running errands and even a night out.

This Chloé bag is definitely my first choice, but the $490 price tag is hard to swallow right now. I’ve been to look at this little guy from the Coach Legacy Collection several times. I love the classic style and trendy tassels. And with the 20% off coupon I just received  in the mail, I might just be able to commit. But, I’ve also been a long-time fan of Clare Vivier’s bags. The Le Mini Sac might be the perfect opportunity to support her brand. What do y’all think? Is there a style you prefer? What’s your dream handbag for Fall?
