Current Obsession: Lo & Sons The Pearl Leather Crossbody Bag
This small, sleek purse packs a ton of organizational punch.
When it comes to schlepping my stuff around, I'm like a goldfish: the contents of my bag grow to fit the size of their environment. As you could imagine, this has the potential to become a very cumbersome—and cluttered—situation. But that's all nipped in the bud with Lo & Sons' The Pearl Leather Crossbody Bag ($248), which hasn't left my side since I got my hands on it.
The pared-down, full-grain nappa leather purse may feel lightweight and look compact, but both qualities belie its ability to neatly cram in a ton of stuff. Two roomy zip pockets sandwich a snap-closure interior compartment that's large enough to stash a tablet such as an iPad mini or Kindle Fire.
This same central component also features designated pockets for your phone, a pen and a business card holder or passport, as well as a key leash that's long enough to easily fish out of your bag—and actually use without having to unhook your entire key ring.
As if this supreme level of organization weren't intoxicating enough, the strap is also convertible, allowing you to easily transform the purse from a crossbody to a shoulder bag to a clutch. Basically, this is the only bag you need to pack on your next vacation.
The Pearl is currently available only in black, although you can choose between gold or silver hardware. Get your hands on the classic bag here and never waste time fishing around for your essentials again.
