The Perfect Black Crossbody Purse

Someone asked me to help them find the perfect black crossbody purse. Not too big, not too small, just the right size – and less than $100. Challenge, taken!

I usually head to Nordstrom Rack, Marshalls or TJ Maxx when I’m on the search for a purse on a budget. There is always a wide selection of heavily discounted items, making it impossible to leave without finding something you want. However, for this challenge, I wanted to stick to items anyone could buy, so here we go:

Aldo is a no-brainer for shoes, but the store carries some excellent accessories, such as this crossbody purse.

Aldo Pensa Purse | $35

J. Crew recently relaunched their Factory store website. I own this purse in a gold glitter and its the perfect size for a few essentials for a night out.

J. Crew Factory Store Leather Envelope Clutch | $68

I love this Banana Republic option. Quilted fabrics are a must for the winter season and the shape is really similar to the Michael Kors version, which happens to be twice as expensive.

Urban Outfitters never fails to disappoint! You can’t beat the price of the two bags below and they both received good reviews from purchasers. Keep in mind, the second option is incredibly small and wouldn’t fit more than a phone, a credit card or two and maybe a small lip gloss. Perfect for going out on the town, but it is definitely not an everyday bag.
