Rarely a day goes by without Alexa stepping out with her trusty Mark Cross top handle box bag. We’ve noticed that the trendsetter has been accessorising almost every outfit with this little beauty, basically making it the number one item in her wardrobe.
Fittingly, it was another major style icon who originally put this mini trunk on the map- Grace Kelly carried one in the 1954 film, Rear Window. We know! In fact, the brand has a super starry history, given that it used to be financed by Ernest Hemingway. It was closed in 1997, only to be revived in 2010, just in time to furnish Alexa’s accessory arsenal! From posing on the red carpet to stalking the streets, there isn’t anywhere Alexa hasn’t taken her Grace bag, and we’ve been super fans since its first outing.
The bad news is that a piece of Mark Cross arm candy will set us back nearly £2,000, promptly putting an end to our Alexa accessory dream. That is until we clocked this incredible tribute from Accessoryo.com- a boxy, top handle number that will only cost you £22.50! That’s right, our new carry-it-everywhere, can’t-leave-home-without-it bag will cost us less than £25, which just sent the cost-per-wear potential through the roof.
Accessoryo’s hero buy also comes in a range of colours and textures, so take your pick! Naturally, we love the classic black style for its Chung vibes, but we’re also pretty big fans of the blue and red velvet varieties. We’re deffo going to be switching up our old party clutches for this cool alternative- now all we need is the rest of Alexa’s wardrobe to go with it…
