We know having the perfect bag makes life just a little bit easier. But finding the bag that meets all our needs of style and functionality can be like hunting for buried treasure.
However, in our quest to find the ideal bag, we came across one that has nearly 1,700 ratings on Amazon with an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars. The Alyssa Double Compartment Large Flapover Crossbody Bag is generating a lot of buzz on the internet’s most popular shopping site for several reasons.
First, there’s the crossbody style of the bag. The design allows for ample pocket depth and space while avoiding excess bulk and size. Then, there are the pockets.
In her 5-star review for the crossbody bag, Amazon reviewer meglo sums up how great of a combo this is.
“It’s big enough for a book along with my other essentials, but is not huge and bulky, which is what I want,” she writes. “It can hold quite a bit before looking full when you close it. I especially love the middle pocket for my wallet and keys, and the zip pocket on the outside back for my phone!”
The adjustable strap also allows for the purse to be worn across the body — hence the name. But, if you want something for just off the shoulder, simply cinch it up and wear it like a traditional purse.
Amazon reviewers also talked a lot about how much they love the variety of colors available for the bag. You can choose from 23 different colors, ranging from the basic black or white to something more spectacular like mint green or dusty pink. You could find a color to match every season!
Finally, one of the most attractive features of this crossbody purse is the price! It sells for only $23.95 on Amazon and is eligible for free shipping for Amazon Prime members.
A quick search on Amazon for other crossbody purses brought up selections ranging in price from $32 to more than $100. And, some of those were only available in one color. This bag seems like a steal!
When you add it all up, the price, style and thousands of positive reviews on Amazon have us adding this bag to our wish list!
