Nothing irks me more than a little bag with a big bag’s price tag, which means that I almost always get excited to see one of Gorjana’s new bags show up in the New Arrivals section on ShopBop. The brand does a good job of keeping its prices reasonable, particularly when it comes to minibags and small crossbodies. The price tags are almost always equally diminutive. At just below $200, the Gorjana Madison Small Crossbody keeps the tradition of reasonableness alive.
Of course, a bag is never a good deal at any price unless it’s cute, and this design has cute in spades. A small purse in a bright summer color is a great way to add a fresh kick to an outfit without overwhelming the entire ensemble, and the sparse, vaguely Balenciagaesque studs on this bag provide just enough of an accent. The subtly textured leather looks like it will be soft to the touch, and although it looks tiny in these pictures, the six-and-a-half inch width of the bag means that it will probably fit your essentials for a day of shopping or a run to the grocery store. Buy through ShopBop for $198.
