Hi! Long time lurker and this is finally my first post. I've been looking for an everyday crossbody bag that could hold minimal essentials (wallet, keys, phone, sunglasses--lately I've been carrying these without a purse :lol:) and not be too bulky. I have only ever purchased and currently own one designer handbag (Goyard Artois MM) and it has become my go-to work bag when I need to carry my laptop, books, papers, etc.
I prefer a bag I don't have to constantly baby, but I like to think I am careful when handling my bags.
I tend to wear lots of neutral colors and would prefer something more day to day for my 5'4 frame.

I currently am considering these two bags:
1. YSL Wallet on a Chain (large) in black with gold hardware

I realize there's a steep difference in price haha. I like how there are no obvious logos and the classic/timeless style of the Celine bag but I worry about it getting scratched easily and if it's worth the price.
I also love the look of the YSL but I feel like it's classic gold hardware/monogram design is a bit too flashy, screams "designer" and something I see everywhere.

Would love any other suggestion you guys have! Thanks in advance :smile:

I think that if you go with the WOC you will have a hard time fitting in both keys and sunglasses and might also end up having the sunglasses get scratched. I love the box bag but think that the leather is a little delicate and am not convinced it's worth the price.

A compromise that doesn't break the bank would be the lou camera bag-- it's at a great price point, cute for everyday and can be dressed up or down, and would fit your essentials and a little more, like a lip balm or mirror if you needed it as well.

+1 on the Lou Lou. I like your taste! Don’t think you can go wrong with any of the above.

Check out the Saint Laurent Niki chain wallet. It's a great size, fits the basics, doesn't have to be babied. The crinkle leather is durable. Black with black hardware is a nice alternative.
