I’m in love with this adorable cross body purse! The perforated design, the natural/blush color, the detachable strap, the material–everything about it is oh-so-lovely. This purse looks like it is at least a couple hundred dollars. I was in a boutique in Alexandria, Virginia and almost didn’t pick it up because I was certain the price […]
