I cannot say enough about cross body bags. For me, hands free living is the name of the game. If I have my personal items close by without using my hands, I will choose it anytime. There is nothing like shopping with my hands free to pick up things, move things, hold things, or just let them swing by my side.
According to fellow blogger, Sherene Melinda, cross body bags were sometimes called messenger bags in the beginning because they were used by cyclist messengers to make deliveries and thus freeing the cyclist to navigate the bicycle. Strapping a bag across the body freed their hands to hold the bars. These popular bags were also used by line men doing electrical work in the early 50’s allowing them to climb poles with their tools.
And now it has evolved into the fashion bag that is very popular today, not only for women but for men too, as they are sometimes called man bags. Cross body bags can come in many sizes, colors and shapes depending on what your comfort level is and your style choice.
With Fall around the corner, having one of these will free your hands for that Pumpkin Latte while you browse your local Fall festival or Farmer’s Market.
Does it get any better than that?
