Quilted Crossbody Bag

Quilted leather is one of the most popular trends this fall: I'm seeing quilted patterns on just about every type of handbag, shoe, and article of clothing.  We can credit this trend to the iconic brand Chanel, whose 2.55 bag is a prized possession to any fashionista.  Chanel's newer "Boy Bag" crossbody style also became an instant "it bag" when it launched in fall 2011, and I'm especially fond of the quilted style that launched about a year ago in fall 2013.  This particular style inspired quite a few versions in the market this fall, so there is one for every budget.  A quilted crossbody bag is just the right size to hold all of your essentials, and easy to use for both day and night.  For today's outfit, I layered a side zip sweater over a white collared shirt, then added a faux leather pencil skirt and booties.  Statement jewelry, burgundy lips, and this quilted crossbody bag finished a look that was perfect for dinner and a night out in the city.
