@anonymousse, I won’t spring for a ClareV either. Way too much IMO.
@copa, I’m also a crossbody or hands free for life too. I used to LOVE my madewell leather tote. Used it daily for the better part of 10+ years. Smaller and crossbody is easier and better for my back. Same reason my work bag will always be a backpack. If I drove, maybe it’d be different.
Ooh, I wanted a cute pair of sneakers to wear with dresses walking around Italy. The Birdie sneakers are so, so comfortable. They’re roomie and work with my bunions. Excellent purchase. I ordered a 1/2 size up per the recommendation.
