(ABOVE) The quilted-leather bag and shoes from Talbots are cabernet.  I wear them when I want accessories that are dark but not quite black.

If you’ve followed my blog since it began last August, then you know how much I like crossbody bags.  This one from Talbots also can accommodate the four-ounce bottle of homemade salad dressing I carry when I dine out.

One of the reasons I like wearing a crossbody is that it creates another layer of interest to whatever top or dress I’m wearing–in addition to being hands-free.  This particular bag is currently on sale for more than 50 percent off.  They no longer have cabernet, but they do have a dark brown that looks quite similar, along with two other colors. ~Janis Lyn Johnson

I convert from wearing a crossbody (TOP OF PAGE and ABOVE) to a shoulder bag (BELOW).  So versatile.
