Last Winter, I was looking for a structured bag that was small and light enough to swing across my body and stroll through the city streets with ease. As I was scouring through the clearance racks at Nordstrom Rack, I stumbled upon this boxed treasure hanging on the metal bar. Although the color was very light and neutral, I was intrigued by its clean, naked body - full of clothing pairing potential. I knew this would balance out some of my more edged out pieces. Although I knew I found something special, I couldn't help squinting nervously to look at the price tag. I remember thinking to myself that the sale price had to be right enough to be considered a sale and light enough for my wallet to afford. As I slowly allowed my eyes to open and focus at the numbers before me, I felt a little flutter of excitement to see this flawless beauty for a mere $79, while bags from Rebecca Minkoff typically run from about $150-$200. This Rebecca Minkoff Craig Camera Crossbody Bag was a diamond in the rough that was calling my name. Although I did take a few minutes staring at the silver rack and contemplating, I knew I had to snatch this piece before another girl walked down the aisles.
