Mirror, mirror on the wall, which cross body bag is the fairest of them all?

Lately I’ve been thinking about getting a new cross body bag for my essentials. Since I’ve been commuting to work (1-1/2 hours) and carrying massive bags, it’s time for me to ditch my baggage…literally. I’ve got a great Lacoste shopper (in black) for roughly CAN$198 (from what a remember – taxes not included) at Town Shoes.

Currently, I’m carrying two big bags (the Lacoste Shopper and a large cross body bag). I’m trying to ditch my clumsy cross body bag and limit my carry-on to my wallet, disinfectant, lip balm, moisturizer, keys and phone. I had my heart set on a Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Percy cross body bag:

However, when I went to Aritzia (they carry Marc by Marc Jacobs handbags/wallets now!), I saw that it was much smaller than I would hope. No secret zipper pockets on the inside.

I scoured various sites and went through Piperlime and Endless by Amazon and came across a few top choices:

I’m going to wait patiently for something that makes me want it. If I don’t feel a spark or obsess over a dress or bag, I know that it’s not meant to be…
