I’m sure all of you know by now that my weakness is denim. Being a denim blogger, I am obsessed with it to the point of owning around 450 pairs of jeans (the last time I counted) in all different fits, washes, weights, styles and more, but I don’t only love denim in jeans, I love it in all sorts of things. This is why when I saw that Rebecca Minkoff had designed her famous Love Cross Body Bag in denim, I literally fell off my seat! What more could I ask for? I was hoping it might come in the mini size (it now does!) if I’m being picky, but I actually love this size more than I thought I would! Isn’t it stunning?!
The bag itself is around 9.75 inches in length, 5.5 inches in height and has a depth of about 3.25 inches, making it quite a decent size for everything you want to carry. It has a really cool black and white floral printed lining too, for those of you wondering. I always love the different linings that Rebecca Minkoff uses and the different prints on the dust bags, so if you are interested in that too, this one comes with a satin navy dust bag, which looks really nice.
Getting to the fabric, it’s got quilted denim on the front and plain denim on the back, all of which is encased in navy leather trims and details. These colours really compliment each other so well! The Love Cross Body also features a silver twist lock fastening and a secret slip pocket on the back of the bag. It has a 2 pocket interior and a silver metal chain strap adorned with navy leather at the top, for your shoulder. I was worried about the weight of this bag since I’m not really very good with heaviness on my shoulders, which is why I mostly go for smaller bags, but as this is made of up mostly denim, it lessened the otherwise classic Love Cross Body weight to only 28oz which makes it fine for me.
As soon as I got this bag I couldn’t wait to take it out and I’ve already shot outfit photos with it (this is a mini preview of my look) which I can’t wait to share with you. I am literally obsessed with this bag right now and from one denim lover to another, it’s definitely worth owning! It’s an easy way to do the double denim trend or even triple denim if you want to! The raw colour pairs well with everything and makes it look classy. What do you think of it? Buy this bag online exclusively at Shopbop for $275.
