Rebecca Minkoff Edie Baguette review

I love finding a handbag which fits into multiple categories. The new Rebecca Minkoff Edie Baguette is not only on trend, it’s a functional bag that serves multiple purposes. Love that!

One of the big trends for spring 2020, and 2020 in general, is the return of the baguette. We are seeing baguettes everywhere! This fabulous baguette by Rebecca Minkoff isn’t just your average baguette, it’s a convertible baguette. Oh yes, it’s three bags in one! Love!

The Rebecca Minkoff Edie Baguette is a cross body bag, it’s a retro under-the-arm shoulder bag, and it’s a clutch. Yup, that’s right! You can wear this bag on casual days as a cross body bag, amp up your look with a ’90’s shoulder bag vibe, or pair it with an evening ensemble. So while we are sheltering-in-place right now, it’s the perfect bag to wear cross body while going to the grocery store or pharmacy. You can also wear it cross body while taking a walk outside. Then, when the economy starts to open back up, you can wear it as a clutch to go out to dinner or a party. You can also wear it with the shorter strap over your forearm or shoulder. It’s a lot of looks in one, for a reasonable price under $250. Love that!

I love how this bag has two detachable straps. You can detach the one you don’t want to wear, or leave them both on and allow the one you aren’t using to drape down; giving the bag a street style vibe. So fun!

It also has a magnetic closure, so you don’t have to fiddle with the clasp as shown. That’s actually cosmetic. The hidden magnetic closure makes this bag easy in, and easy out. Perfect to wear everyday. Loving that!

The interior of the Rebecca Minkoff Edie Baguette offers just enough room for daily purse essentials such as wallet, lipstick, phone, keys, and sunglasses. It also features an interior slip pocket which is great for receipts, business cards, cash, or credit cards; in case you decide to not carry a wallet.

The Rebecca Minkoff Edie Baguette also has an exterior opera ticket pocket. This is great for receipts, and other slim objects you might want to reach for, or put away quickly, without opening up the bag. There are so many reasons why this bag is functional and practical, while still being on trend.

This is a fabulous bag to wear right now, and into the summer, fall, and winter seasons. It will definitely live longer than the season. This bag will also save us all money in the long-run since it is three bags in one! Plus, it fits into the bright bag trend, baguette trend, and multi-color trend for the spring and summer seasons.

Frame Les Second mini tote bag review

How cute is this mini tote bag, which doubles as a cross body bag, from Frame Denim! I absolutely adore this little bag. Mini bags are back in style this year, and this cute little tote bag not only fits right into the spring 2020 trend, it offers a ton of functionality. Love that!

For the spring 2020 season, I wanted a bag I could wear everyday, which fit into the current spring 2020 handbag trends. The Frame Les Second mini tote seemed to be the perfect handbag. It offers versatility, on trend colors to choose from, and the “IT” handbag size of the season. Love!

The Frame Les Second mini tote bag is a smaller version of Frame’s Les Second tote which is a classic daytime handbag. The mini version offers the small silhouette which is on trend this year, without sacrificing interior space. It also offers a cross body strap, so that the bag can be worn on the forearm, by hand, over the shoulder, or cross body. It also has a secure zipper closure, and a slim, interior pocket.

What fits inside the Frame Les Second mini tote bag

The Frame Les Second mini tote bag fits everything we need on a daily basis. It fits a wallet, phone, keys, and lipstick. Even with these daily essentials, there is a still room for a small snack, or small digital camera. It has just enough space.

I’m loving this bag in cheery yellow. It instantly gives off a happy vibe. If yellow isn’t your thing, it is also available in neutral hues, the color of 2020-classic blue, and bright pink. It also happens to be priced under $400. Love that!

This is a great bag for daily wear. It fits everything we need, plus it can be worn several different ways, to fit the occasion. The stamped croc leather is sturdy, and does not scratch easily. It can be tossed around a little bit without showing any wear. I’ve been wearing it out with my kids, while running errands, and for lunch meetings. It’s a great bag!

The Frame Les Second mini tote comes in both stamped croc, and leather. Both have a great look, and offer a sturdy finish.

Which color if your favorite?

New Year, new handbag trends for spring 2020! There is a new small, cross body bag in town, and it’s not a silhouette we have seen in quite some time. Enter, the cross body phone case for spring 2020.

You might be thinking, “I have way more than a phone to carry around when I want to be hands-free!” Well, that’s not a problem here; as long as you don’t mind carrying light. This north/south mini bag offers room for a phone, a small wallet, a set of keys, and a lipstick. You can also forego the wallet altogether, and use the built-in credit card slots to free up room in the bag. I am more of a wallet person,  so I prefer squeezing in my mini-wallet, but it is nice to have options!

Gucci Phone Case : Gucci cross body phone case review

I won’t lie, this is a tight handbag. As a mom, it does not leave me any room for when my daughter hands me her phone to carry, or my son asks me carry a baggie of goldfish crackers. That being said, this is a great mini bag for days when I want to be hands-free, and lighten my load.

There are several handbag trends for the upcoming spring 2020 season, but the cross body phone case is one which is new. It isn’t continuing from another season. This trend will replace your larger, east/west cross body bag from years past.

I chose the Gucci phone case as my bag for rocking the mini cross body bag trend because it offers a classic, vintage vibe. I am always feeling the 1970s, so this bag evokes a vibe which works well with my current ’70’s mood. Love that!
