The Dooney & Bourke'Americana Signature Erica Hobo' has all the same characteristics at a fraction of the price. The Gucci Jackie will run you $1540, while the D&B option comes in at $198.
A crossbody is a great option for those days when you want something on the smaller side, yet still big enough to slide your wallet, keys and smartphone into.
