Shop Suey Boutique contacted me recently and said that I could choose any item from their site that I’d like to review. They have handbags that range up to $85, and this would have been the perfect opportunity to add one of their luxury totes to my closet; however, price tags aside, I had my eye on the Monica Cross-Body Handbag for it’s function and style.
Beyond the fact that it is affordable at only $48, I go to a lot of races (motocross and Nascar) and really needed a bag that was lightweight and just big enough to carry my ID, credit card, credentials, lipgloss and keys. It’s actually big enough for my large wallet and cell phone as well. This cross-body bag is perfect for holding your essentials while you keep your hands free for water and nachos at all of your spring / summer outdoor events – baseball games and music festivals.
I love love love the quilted design and the removable strap is perfect if you’d like to dress this bag up as a clutch. This handbag makes me realize that maybe I should scale down rather than always carrying a large handbag that hides everything I’m digging for on a daily basis, lol. Smaller handbags are definitely the trend this season, in particular cross-body handbags!
