 My name is Courtney and I am addicted to handbags.The first step is admitting that you have a problem, am I right? My first handbag-high was brought on by a fuchsia Coach buckle demi that I bought at Dillards ten years ago, with a wad of hard-earned babysitting money that was burning a hole in my pocket. I fell head-over-heels for that bag ( I actually still have it), and have loved adding to my collection over the years with bags of various styles and colors. The past few years there have been multiple times when a crossbody bag was how I got my fix.
   Crossbody bags are one of the most diverse fashion innovations since the emergence of the LBD. They seamlessly take you from day to night and are perfect for a variety of activities/events, due to the fact that they leave your hands free! This season I have seen so many that I would love to add to my collection, and wanted to share some of them with your guys.
   There are a few Rebecca Minkoff styles (these ones are on discount right now at Nordstrom) that made my list. She has been killing it with her color and pattern choices for bags lately.The yellow with the black hardware is definitely my favorite. I have seen the bag in person and it is a more vibrant neon shade of yellow than the photo depicts.
   Then there are those two Steve Madden fringe choices–I die. I love their boho vibe and they are PERFECT for concert/festival season that is just around the corner! I actually got myself the tan one as a birthday gift for myself. (I am 25 now, I can’t believe it) Choosing between the grey and tan was a nearly impossible decision, I just felt the tan would go with more in my wardrobe.
   And last I have these two elephant crossbody bags from eBay. Allow me to say how much I LOVE eBay finds. They have so many unique and affordable pieces–these bags are only $10 plus free shipping. I am an elephant enthusiast so of course both of these made their way onto my wish list.
 I know I did not put a whole lot of variety on this little wish list, but I just loved the different colors available for the Steve Madden and eBay bags so much, that I just had to share them both! I hope you guys had a great week and have an even better weekend! As always, I very much look forward to your feedback!

    I love crossbodies so much, they are so carefree! But I can rarely pack such a light load =(
    Need to buy a smaller wallet…

      You could always try using a card case! I have a couple and just transport my ID, credit card and cash into it when I use my crossbody bags!

      They have some clutches to have the option to convert to crossbody! I just love the handsfree option a crossbody gives you!

    In my case, admitting that I have a problem will probably only lead to a bigger problem…I have more than enough crossbodies for every concert and dinner for the rest of this year, but I’m really loving the yellow RM one that you posted. I think it would be a really great addition to my collection!
