Have searched for a cross body bag for months and then saw this one. First, leather is excellent quality. The strap adjusts so it can be lengthened for cross body or shortened and worn over the shoulder. The top folds but is easy to access. This is large enough to hold everything including sunglasses and reading glasses yet still small enough that it doesn't look too large on the hip. Terrific design, love the color & looks great for everyday or travel.
