But there are a few things that make a bag better than others. I'm a fan of luxe leather, a usable size (not too big, not too small) and a comfortable chain length — to name a few.
While this Gucci Arabesque bag undoubtedly fits the bill on all three of these criteria, I couldn't help myself from looking around to see what else is out there this season.
Take a look at a few of my favourite new crossbody bags below!
Happy Friday — and even happier shopping.
What it is: A collection of salon-quality detangling and conditioning leave-in hair sprays.
Targeted to fix common hair types including those lusting after volume, perfect blonde and extra hydration. Plus, two formula for kids!
Beauty bonus: These spritzes smell AH-mazing!
Beauty bummer: Literally, none.
Overall: These sprays are literally the best. No joke.
We tried all of the available types and were amazed at how great these spritzes made our hair feel.
Dry locks? Instantly moisturized. Easily knotted hair? A few spritzes give way to smooth sailing with a brush.
And the best part? They don't leave hair feeling weighed down or sticky after use.
Would recommend: 100% yes! Our fave was the Hydra Nutritive Detangling Conditioner is one of our favourite new beauty releases.
Price: $12.95 (kids); $17.45 (all others)
Where to get it: Chatters; Trade Secrets
What it is: A sulfate, paraben, petrolatum and mineral oil-free (whew!) shampoo from a collective of hair care industry experts that work to bring products that are treatment-oriented and target hair and scalp health.
Diatomaceous earth is the magic ingredient in the texturizing formula to give grip to hair.
Beauty bonus: The scent is unique and subtle. It's not sweet or overpowering at all.
Beauty bummer: This shampoo doesn't mess around when it says to expect grit (you read that right). We followed the directions and skipped our conditioner. Post-use we felt like we had been out in the blowing, sandy desert with tangly, unmanageably stiff tresses.
Overall: This shampoo definitely delivers on texture, we're just not sure it works for our type of hair.
We tested it on fine hair and found that hair definitely felt texturized but also unmanageable and frizzy. We couldn't get a comb through wet hair, so we to spritz on a leave-in conditioner, and it still didn't tame our tresses.
On the plus side, hair feels thicker and more voluminous due to the texture.
Bottom line: if you have a specific style in mind that needs a little bit of help staying, this shampoo can help you achieve it without massive amounts of hairspray or waiting days without washing.
Would recommend? Yes, for a very specific textured look. But for everyday? We'll stick to using with a conditioner.
