A crossbody bag in a handy size and neutral color is one of the best fashion investments you can make. Speaking from personal experience I can say that I get the most use out of my black crossbody bags because they’re so absolutely practical for running daily errands. Valentino‘s “Rock Lock” is a paramount example for such a versatile and stylish bag and I’d love to own it since I’m a big fan of Valentino’s stud adorned bags, but spending two grands on such a small bag? My budget can’t really take that kind of a dent I’m afraid.
