When Oprah shares something she loves, we the fans listen. Because not only does she have true style and impeccable taste but she also understands how little things make life better and brighter.
Here's a standout from her last Favorite Things list that's worth revisiting for summer travels: The versatile K. Carrol Kelsey Crossbody, just $45 at Amazon. The Kelsey is an organizational wonder (three zippered exterior pockets, two compartments), and its RFID (radio-frequency identification) protective card slots help keep funds safe during your summertime adventures.
If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And even those without Prime get free shipping on orders of $25 or more).
In her annual faves roundup, Oprah gushed: “I lost count of this vegan-leather crossbody’s compartments. That’s a good thing, because it means it can hold all your essentials. And hooray for all the color options! Also, at $45, this is what I call bang for your buck.”
Agreed. We also love the crossbody style, for keeping our hands free and the bag on our person when out and about.
Amazon shoppers appreciate this cute little wonderbag too.
One five-star fan writes (with heart emojis): "Cute and versatile with so many pockets! Love how this crossbody keeps me organized! No more searching for my keys or phone. A pocket for everything — and more! And the beige color with black trim is stylish and perfect for all seasons."
"Stylish, convenient crossbody," adds another happy reviewer. "The handbag has a detachable strap that is just the right length for wearing crossbody or on one shoulder. It also has a handle for carrying when you just want to grab and go. I love that the main compartment, which is quite roomy, is divided into two sections and that there is an additional outside zippered compartment as well. All around great bag without being large and bulky!"
If you're looking for a small bag, this 7.5-by-5.5 crossbody may be the one, according to fans. "I have probably purchased 10 bags a year hunting for the perfect bag," shared a shopper, explaining that "they are either too big and I fill them up, they get too heavy and kill my neck and back. or they are too small and i have to take 10 things out to get to what I need. this is perfect!!!"
