Let’s play a little game of Never Have I Ever, shall we? I’ll start: Never have I ever worn a tote bag. Not the juiciest of goss, I know, but hear me out. I’m a crossbody-bag girl through and through, and while I would like it to be purely down to the aesthetic of said bag style, it is in fact mainly due to pure laziness. If I can get away with not carrying shopping bags, carriers or any form of luggage, I will. But seeing as an everyday bag is almost essential, I have to give in to carrying something around with me, and this is why the hands-free crossbody works. Also, due to my urge to not carry things, I’m all for more compact styles that’ll hold my loose bank card, chewing gum, lipstick and my phone—if it will fit.
