Cuyana Makes a Compelling Case for Ladylike Bags

I usually steer clear of dainty accessories, so imagine my surprise when I fell for Cuyana's adorable mini saddle bag. Between the new neutral "quartz" tone—think nude that wants to be pink—and the chain link strap, it looks way more expensive than its $225 price tag. (Probably because it bears a passing resemblance to this Chloe chain-strap saddle bag, which rings in at $1650.)

The style is made in Italy from full-grain Italian leather, and finished with plated Italian hardware. While it lives up to the "mini-bag" moniker at 6.5 inches x 7 inches, it's large enough to fit a standard iPhone, credit card, keys, and cash. With festivals and warm-weather getaways calling, this hands-free bag is one of the smartest pieces you can buy yourself for the season ahead.
