Urban Expressions: Mod Style

Convertible bags are my favorite style. I really like having options and being able to take the chain off this cross body bag and turn it into a hand-held clutch gives it a little something extra.

How would YOU style this metallic bag?

Not only is it a California-based company creating gorgeous handbags, but their products are eco-friendly and certified vegan.

I love top handle bags like this, they inevitably make me think of Grace Kelly or Jackie O. But this baby has an added bonus, there’s also a gorgeous gold chain that allows you to carry it as a cross-body bag!
