    1. A crocodile-patterned clutch with a unique shape and a detachable chain strap — a perfect bag for making a statement without being *too* over-the-top.

    ModCloth

    When Elton John wrote "Crocodile Rock," he was probably thinking about this handbag.

    Get it from ModCloth for $34.99.

    2. A simple shoulder bag in a neutral color to pair with your wildest outfits (and tamest) outfits.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "The purse is beautiful and roomy. I especially like the option of using either the shorter handle or snapping that off and putting on the longer shoulder handle. The longer handle is adjustable and I've been able to shorten it to the perfect length for my height. I have arthritis so it's difficult for me to carry a heavy purse with my hands. I'm hope, hope, hoping that the handle holds up because I tend to fill my purse with all kinds of things so it can be pretty heavy." —debbiedarline

I wanted something with enough room for the necessities — phone, charger, wallet, sunglasses — and this bag did all that and more. A crossbody bag can't be yanked away by a thief, and I'd wear the bag on my right hip so all the zippers faced front, my right hand resting comfortably on top as I walked.

    Promising review: "Love, love, love this purse!! It’s perfect. I was looking for a practical everyday cross-body purse. I was tired of my old one as it was huge and would always slide off my shoulders. So happy I found this one! It’s big enough to hold everyday essentials. It was a smaller middle pocket in it that’s perfect for putting your phone in. The quality is great, too! It feels like it cost more than what it did. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!" —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "Love it! The style details really come together for a completely boho/vintage look - the wooden handles (love them - so unique), vintage leather, metal hardware, unstructured shape, and the canvas strap. Size is perfect for everyday. I bought the olive and with the brown details, it just completely works for fall. The leather is a little thick and stiff - not super soft - but that actually adds to the vintage look." —baglady811

    Promising review: "My husband got this purse for me for Christmas. I really love the over the shoulder style, and it has a buckle on the strap so you can adjust the length. It wears very comfortably. The front latch is for decoration only and it hides a magnet closure. This purse fits the necessities (phone, keys, wallet), and not much else, but I like that. It's perfect for going out." —Ben & Heather Lunders

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99 (available in 12 colors).
