Splurge v. Save: Crossbody Bags

I wanted to start a new regular feature here on Stellar Fashion & Fitness, and since I love the aspirational aspect of popular fashion magazines, yet I’m definitely a budget shopper, I though a little Splurge & Save fashion inspiration would be fun!

So, let’s talk crossbody bags. I have a simple crossbody bag that I bought a couple of years ago from Urban Outfitters and, while it works just fine, I must say that I am coveting this Coach North/South Swingpack ($145):


This bag is classic and can last for years — which I think makes it worth the splurge. I can see myself wearing this bag with a variety of outfits — I know it will be really versatile.

When it comes to a Save, I would go for a fun, more trendy bag. Because you may not wear this bag as often, or for more than a year or two, I would’ve invest as much money. This INC Fringe Crossbody bag is on sale for $51.99 and the fringe makes it very on-trend right now.



I would love to wear this bag with a tunic and leggings or jeans and a cozy sweater. It would add interest to an otherwise “basic” outfit.

Do you usually invest in more classic bags, and save on trendier looks? What’s been your favorite Splurge or Save bag that you own?
