The crowd is going wild for this tote. “I’m absolutely in love with this purse! It’s so cute and fun. Great size and I get so many compliments on it! Can’t wait to get it in other colors,” says one of many fans.
It’s the perfect pouch for wallet, keys, phone and then some (there’s room for hand sanitizer, a pack of tissues and a few beauty items). “Love this bag,” says a five-star fan. “Gorgeous color, long adjustable strap and the perfect size to hold essentials. Beautiful workmanship, excellent quality….”
Let’s just take a moment to celebrate the price drop on this gorgeous quilted wallet — it’s down to $69 from $210! And it’s pretty enough to double as a clutch. A zip coin compartment and multiple dividers ensure you stay organized.
Sleek, feminine and super-functional. “I absolutely love this shoulder bag,” says one reviewer. “It has plenty of room inside, and the key issue for me is that many bags don’t have outside access…I like having the outer access for my keys.” This little beauty has got that.
Darcy Small Bucket Bag
This versatile bucket bag is the perfect size for the essentials. Need some help organizing your stuff? It has multiple pockets inside and out, so you can find that tube of lipstick or your keys in a snap.

Made of refined grain leather, this classic has many fans. Size-wise, apparently, it’s perfect. “I love this purse as my everyday bag,” says one shopper. “I can fit everything in here. I have placed a bottle of water and a small foldable umbrella with my wallet, 2 sunglass cases, a battery pack for my phone and of course my phone. Easy getting things in and out as it only has a magnetic closure….”
Since it packs a style punch, this bag is great for travel, when every piece has to truly earn its spot in your suitcase. Fans agree: “This is so cute and perfect as a purse to take on trips when you want something small to carry.”
While this pretty satchel is certainly appropriate for the office, it’s also playful enough for nights out — and a total workhorse when you’re traveling. Size-wise? One shopper says, “It fits my iPad pro 11″ with plenty of extra room for anything else I need to bring with me. It’s the perfect size bag.”
Brilliantly, this cosmetics case also keeps spills contained. One reviewer says, “I bought three for gifts for people. They love them.” Smart. Stock up! Also in black and rose gold.
Shoppers rave: “Absolutely love this wallet. Sleek beautiful leather with a great zipper! Perfect for everyday use, with style!!!” Another happy customer says: “So glad I got it!! … I will be buying another one at a later date!!!” Need we say more?
