I'm looking for a bag that may or may not exist: a stylish hip bag that won't make me look either like I'm wearing a waiter's apron or like I'm on my way to a Renaissance Faire.
Ideally, this bag would:
-be flat enough to be worn curving over the side of one hip, so a little in the front and back of my body (to avoid the waiter-apron look of wearing it in front)
-have an adjustable strap so it could also be worn as a cross-body bag
-be pretty small, just big enough to hold a wallet, cell phone, keys, and a few other small things
-probably not be leather (to avoid the Ren Faire look of most of the hip bags out there)
-come in a color that goes with a mostly gray and black wardrobe
-be $50 or less (though I could spend up to $75 for something totally perfect)
I found the Lululemon Travel Pooch
bag which I like for the most part and which meets a lot of this criteria, but they don't make it anymore and I'm not into the white or pink styles currently available used on eBay.
Any suggestions? Also, feel free to weigh in if you think there's just no way to look stylish while wearing such a thing!
