I haven't seen this bag in person either but I do love it. I've seen photos of crossbody and it looks like a perfect simple crossbody bag. There was one on annsfabulousfinds that was in blue but sold (I was eyeing it but then when I decided I wanted it was sold). Check it out with the pics. Hope this helps!
the chain is too short for crossbody. I WISH it could be crossbody. The chain is maybe 18" as a single, or about 8 doubled. How do we wear these bags? with the chain extended to one strand, or always double? Either? it's about 9x6x3
You can wear the bag either way in regards to the chain. If this is your first bag, I'd encourage you to go to a boutique to get some feel for how you'd like the bag to fit you etc. You can look at the different leathers too. If you're wanting crossbody, maybe go for a mini as a starter piece?
