Introducing MEI LI Handbags: Min Crossbody Review

The Min crossbody has a timeless design.

I can remember the exact moment when I decided I needed a crossbody bag.  I was chasing around my 3 year old daughter at the Waikiki Aquarium's seahunt while carrying her Easter basket in one hand and struggling to keep the straps of my tote on my shoulder with the other.  Exasperated, we went straight to Ala Moana Shopping Center to buy one and my preference for crossbody bags has never changed since.  So naturally, when I was selecting one of MEI LI's classic handbags to review, I chose their Min crossbody.    

The Min crossbody combines fashion with function that easily transitions from day to night.  Like the brand's other styles, the Min crossbody is made from premium soft Nappa leather and custom hardware using the highest quality craftsmanship.  The Min crossbody is a functional size bag structured to securely hold all of your essentials.  What I especially loved was that the MEI LI wallet is detachable from the crossbody using concealed magnetic buttons (and clips) so you have the option to also use the wallet with the MEI LI tote bags or on its own.    

The wallet can easily be detached and thrown into your tote or diaper bag!
Spacious design for your cards and cash.  You can also fit your phone in there!

All my Sunday essentials in one place.

The Min crossbody comes in two classic colors, red or black, and the strap is adjustable.  I found the Min to be very comfortable to wear and easy to access all my belongings.  With the many pockets and card slots, it easily could carry all of my essentials and I loved that it kept my hands free.  I also loved the width of the bag; not too thick for it to be bulky, but wide enough to fit in an iphone along with other necessary items.  Not only was it very practical, I also really liked the clean and elegant look of it.  It's a quality bag that can easily go back and forth from causal to dressy.  I used it seamlessly from my son's basketball game to dinner at a steakhouse.  

I love not having to worry about my bag and having my hands free for more important stuff. :)

The classic bag complements any style.

MEI LI, which means beautiful in Mandarin, is the San Francisco based company (with some Hawaii roots!) responsible for this line of handbags and leather goods for women that are designed to be beautiful and elegant on the outside, smart and functional on the inside, and effortlessly styled for day or night.  They are a direct to consumer brand and have just recently launched their Kickstarter campaign.  The project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by March 30, 2018 so if you are interested, be sure to check them out!
