If you’re hunting for a gift for someone but don’t want something too trendy, I have to sing the praises of this bag from See by Chloé. (It’s been around for a few years now, so I wouldn’t call it trendy!)

I got one last year in the post-holiday sales, and debated keeping it for a while because it wasn’t as bright a color as I wanted (mine is burgundy), but I’m really glad I did.

It’s a sturdy, well-made bag that isn’t too big and isn’t too small… I like the shorter strap as a nice change from wearing crossbodies, but for functionality I still love having a crossbody if I’m wandering around for a long time.

The bags are $595 new, but some colors are on sale at Nordstrom… In addition to the brown, black, and “motty grey” at Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s has it on sale in a light blue.
