I’ve been wanting a navy striped tote for quite some time now and I finally found the right one. My requirements were:
- navy/cream or navy/white
- not too small and not too large in size
- top handle + shoulder strap long enough to double as a cross body
- price to be under $300
- preferably leather
- no large logos
- stripes had to be a right width
- zipper closure
It’s not perfect but it’s the best I’ve found and believe me – I searched and searched! Meet the newest addition to my purse collection:

Size: 8″ tall x 10″ long x 4″ deep, handle drop 4.5″
Color: Navy and Cream
Color: Navy and Cream
Material: Printed grainy vinyl (similar to Louis Vuitton canvas material)
The material seems durable and is water resistant. I was hesitant about the vinyl material (especially for this price point) but after close inspection – it’s well made. I’m hoping it won’t crack easily over time. At least the straps and trim are 100% leather.
My favorite feature about this bag is the detachable hanging zip pouch. You can remove it if you need to store larger items. I prefer to have the zip pouch attached so all my contents can be store safely. I can see the zip pouch doubling as a small clutch too! There’s also an inner side zipper pocket – I like to store things that I need to access quickly like chapstick and lipgloss.
It comes with a detachable and adjustable longer strap that you can use for over the shoulder or cross body style. I ended up punching one extra hole in the strap to wear as a cross body. I want to point out that there are two seams in the leather of the longer strap. I thought this was a defect but after talking to customer service, this is how all the straps were made. I was very annoyed about this small but very important detail. Let’s hope the stitching on the seams don’t fall apart on me.
Unfortunately, the bottom does not have feet. I really wish they would have added this feature because it helps protect the bottom from getting dirty.
Overall, I love this bag and would recommend! I think this mini shopper is the perfect size for petites. If you prefer bigger bags, I would recommend going with the larger Kerrington Shopper (buy here). I hope you found this review helpful. Thanks for reading!
