As a consumer, I always get stuck between wanting to buy a bag that satisfies a trend that I like and a bag that will outlast trends and be useful for a long time. Which is what has stopped me from buying clutch-sized crossbody bag so far – it’s a trend I find interesting, but also one that will look outdated eventually and not my favorite shape to begin with.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Totally Turnlock Percy Bag

Well, I think that Marc by Marc Jacobs may have solved my problem with the Marc by Marc Jacobs Totally Turnlock Percy Bag. What they’ve done here is take one of their large wristlets and given it a long crossbody strap so it can be worn as part of the current trend. The genius, though, is that the strap is completely removable, so when you get over the whole tiny crossbody thing, just take it off and use it as a cosmetics case or hand-carried clutch. The perfect solution to a trendy problem. Buy through Saks for $198.

    I have been eyeing this bag ever since I’ve been in the market for a crossbody! If the Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mini doesn’t quite fit the bill for a very compact crossbody, I’ll be looking to get this – hopefully in a blue/teal that I think (not sure) is coming out this fall!

    I too have been eyeing this bag for…well months probably. I thought it was sold out in black everywhere but Saks to the rescue!!!! Thank you Amanda!!

    That’s totally fantastic. It looks cute and trendy buuut- it also looks classic. Genius.

    I can see myself rocking this at a concert where I don’t want to have to deal with a big bag or holding a clutch.
