I’m currently coveting this pretty, pretty bag — Hayden Harnett‘s Barnard Crossbody. It’s a nice size (oftentimes crossbody bags are too small to be practical), the strap is adjustable so it can be worn as a shoulder bag or as a crossbody, and the navy color is pretty. Even the lining is cool! Oh, and the materials are locally sourced. One bad thing — it costs $450. Why?! Why do the purse gods hate me so?? Oh, well. I guess you can’t have every pretty, perfectly sized bag. SIGH.

Personal pick: Velvetine Clyde bag

Velvetine Clyde Bag. From Shopbop.

Ah, if only I had an extra $725 lying around, I would be the proud owner of this gorgeous Clyde bag by Velvetine. The fold-over front flap and the cute chain detail really got me, as did the optional long strap (I like options). The pebble leather is also a nice touch, as it gives the bag a little something extra, which I think is important when the dominant color is a neutral.

My only concern with a fold-over bag is ease of entry. The fact that you have to unfold the flap and then unzip the bag to get into it — something that requires two hands — makes me think you wouldn’t want to use this if you were planning on doing any multitasking. But it’s so pretty!

What do you think? Do you choose form over function, or is usability paramount?

Huh? Alexander Wang Pyramid Clutch

I’m not sure how I feel about this:

Alexander Wang Pyramid Clutch

Back of clutch

The Alexander Wang Pyramid Clutch sure is different, but I wonder how functional it is. It’s still a flat purse like a normal clutch, but how is it getting inside? Since it doesn’t zip all the way across, I wonder if it’s hard to use. There are some cool stud-like feet on the back, but I wonder if that makes it hard to carry, too.

Does anyone have first-hand knowledge of this bag? Please share!
