For years, I lugged around a huge tote with everything but the kitchen sink in it. Last year, I switched over to a smaller cross body bag like this one. I had to really limit myself to what I put in my purse, which admittedly took some getting used to. However, I’m so happy I made the switch — that heavy bag was killing my neck and shoulder! And I really like have a streamlined bag — I realize now how much junk I was unnecessarily lugging around. If you’re ready to “downsize” your handbag, you can’t go wrong with the Monica bag from Kate Spade!


  1. Hi, Mara. Thanks for your blog. It’s always helpful.

    I have a question for you about the Kate Spade “Suprises.” Do you know if they are simply overstock or if they are seconds? I ask because I purchased a wallet on it from the Cyber Monday sale you posted and it just isn’t quite right. The crossbody bag is appealing but before I purchase, I’m curious as to whether or not they are first quality. ALSO: Do you have the Monica Crossbody Bag? If so, I’m curious how much it will hold as some comments on their site imply that even a mobile phone might not fit…

    One more question: Is there a way to search your site for a particular post? Sometimes I want to go back to see something you posted a few – or more – days ago and it can take a while to find it. You might already have this feature that I just haven’t figured out yet.

    Thank you!!

      Hi Ruth!

      Kate Spade Surprise is not seconds. They used to host the surprise sales on their regular site (like 10-12 years ago), but now it’s its own site. If something is wrong with your item, I’d def contact customer service! https://surprise.katespade.com/contact-us

      I don’t have the Monica bag (mine is a different name – can’t remember which), but it looks like a mobile phone should fit based on measurements. If you click on “See Bag Size” on the top of the page, you should be able to compare common items and see what will fit inside.

      As for searching, there is a search bar over in the right sidebar. If you’re on your phone, scroll to the bottom of the homepage. Definitely this time of year, posts get pushed back a few pages very quickly!

      Thanks so much for your questions. 🙂
