Coveting – Cross Body Mini Bag vs Clutch

I’ve been coveting a cross body mini bag or a nice neutral clutch; both would be great for traveling or when I head out to dinner.  I was surprised to find these designer bags/clutch for under $700; they come in different colors too in each style.  Can’t seem to decide between all of these. . . 

1}  Chloe Marcie (less than $500)

2}  Chloe Round Marcie

3} Miu Miu Matelasse Clutch

4}  Miu Miu Croc-effect Clutch (less than $500)

5} Marc Jacobs Quilted Clutch (less than $500)

6} YSL Patent Clutch

Which is your favorite?  Cross body or clutch?  

Happy Friday and weekend.  Don’t forget about my friends and family at t+j Designs!  25% off with code TJFF.  Ends Sunday.  Who doesn’t need new jewelry – especially since we strive to make most items under $30.

    so glad you posted this! i`ve been looking for a small, sleek crossbody bag for when i run errands or don`t wanna carry too much. did you know the YSL has a version that comes with a chain? i think that might be the one that i`m leaning towards!

    I am currently obsessed with clutches. I have a few formal events coming up and of course none of the other 8 clutches I own match anything I want to wear. The YSL clutch is my favorite of your picks, but I would love it in a nude satin.

    I love the Chloe ones actually… cant believe that first one is under $500! Though I'm also partial to the Miu Miu Matelasse since it matches my wallet :)xo, alison*elle
