I AM POSITIVELY GIDDY ABOUT TODAY’S POST!!! FREAKING. GIDDY.
Y’all know I love a cross body bag.
You also know I love a great bag strap and how much style it can add to an outfit.
Today I have an incredible deal on bags AND straps.
I’ve teamed up with my girls at Accessory Concierge (LOVE THEM!), and this just might be the best deal we’ve ever offered. EVER. And we’ve had some crazy good deals over the years, so that’s saying something. Today we’ve got 3 colors of a faux croc bucket bag and over 10 bag straps to choose from. And they are all SO soooooooooooo good.
THE DEAL AND THE CODE
BAG INFO: The bucket bag I’m featuring today comes in 3 colors and is regularly $65. But with today’s code, you will get the bag for ONLY $39. WOW.
STRAP INFO: There are 9 bag straps that are regularly $30, but with today’s code, you will get them for ONLY $18! AGAIN. WOW.
There are 2 camo straps that cost a little more, regularly $36, but with today’s code they are ONLY $21.60. AGAIN. SAY IT WITH ME. WOW.
See what we did there? #likebuildabear #butbuildaBAG
THIS IS AN AMAZING DEAL.
AND THE BEST PART IS THAT YOU CAN CREATE ANY TYPE OF COMBO YOU WANT!
You can get 1 bag and just the solid color strap it comes with (and no additional straps). You can get 6 straps and no bag. You can get 2 bags and 3 straps for mixing and matching. I could go on and on. The possibilities are truly endless, but I’m going to help you make some decisions today by featuring some of my favorites combinations.
And before I start the parade of bags and straps, don’t think of these just for yourself. These would make EXCELLENT Christmas presents, so think of the ladies in your life that would love these too!
BAGS AND STRAPS
Let me first introduce you to the bag. It’s a medium sized bucket bag in a great croc material that is super on trend.
It’s 10″ x 6″ x 11″ and made of a soft faux leather in a croc pattern. It comes with a matching cross body strap as well as a smaller shoulder strap that are interchangeable. There is a large interior zipper pocket that goes down the middle of the bag and separates the inside of the bag into 2 compartments, which makes organizing and finding items easy! There’s also a magnetic snap closure to make sure that everything stays inside that needs to. It’s a great bag.
Here’s a shot of the inside.
And you aren’t going to believe the strap choices. Are you dying? Because I’m dying.
There’s definitely something for everyone!
The straps are sturdy, very well made, and they are all adjustable from 29″-45″. They are a full 2″ wide and made out of a substantial nylon weave with vegan leather tabs at the bottom. All of the hardware is gold.
I cannot believe that the code makes them ONLY $18.
Here are the camo strap choices. Remember these cost just a little bit more because of the metallic thread on the black and the grommet detail on the green option. Both have a more substantial clip as well. They are regularly $36, but the code BUILDABAG will get you the camo straps for just $21.60 a piece. Such a great deal!
Here are the 3 bags (black, brown, and olive) with the solid color strap that comes with them as well as my 3 favorite straps that coordinate with each bag.
As mentioned previously, the possibilities are endless and you can buy just bags….just the bag straps…or any combination you would like! But because there are so many different combos, I’m going to share some of my favorite ones with you today, but you can mix and match however you’d like and totally make it your own!
BROWN BAG WITH FAVORITE STRAPS
If I had to choose just 1 color bag to own, it would be a great brown bag. Most days I’m super casual, and a brown bag just always seems to work.
This brown is a deep and rich chocolate, and you can see that you don’t NEED to buy an additional strap.
The cross body straps sure do add a lot of style!
Here I am with the camo strap. It’s definitely a favorite. This is one that I offered previously, and everybody who got it the first time absolutely RAVES about it.

Keep in mind that this green camo strap is the only one that has the longer leather piece and grommet details, but this shot gives you a good luck at the bag. Also, please notice that the leather on the bottom of the camo strap is much lighter than the bag. I happen to like the contrast, but I did want to draw it to your attention.

And to show you the versatility, here are shots with my 3 favorite strap choices for the brown bag. This stripes are DARLING and I absolutely love these colors.

And here’s a side by side…
BLACK BAG WITH FAVORITE STRAPS
A black bag is definitely a great staple that I know many of you like to have in your closets. The faux croc adds a lot of interest and then the straps totally elevate the bag to something really special.
Here’s an up close shot! I love the unexpected combo of the black, plum, red, and cream stripes.
And to show you the versatility of these straps with the black bag, here are individual shots with my 3 favorite strap choices for this bag.

This black camo strap with the metallic gold thread is awesome.

OLIVE BAG WITH FAVORITE STRAPS
The black and brown bags above are easy choices, but I really love this pretty olive color for Fall.
And to show the versatility once more, here are individual shots with my 3 favorite strap choices for the olive bag. I really love the contrast of these stripes with the olive. SO pretty!

I showed this same strap above with the brown bag, but the greens compliment each other perfectly when paired with this bag.
This one reminds me of the Italian flag, and I dig it.

And here’s a side by side…
MY LV WITH FAVORITE STRAPS
And for those of you that already have bags that have the appropriate hardware (my Louis has the gold rings), you can also just buy strap options to really sass up the bags you already have! (FYI, I always get questions on my bag, and readers have told me it is called the Sully.)

I like all of the straps, but this striped combo is probably my favorite. The color combo is so pretty, and although it screams Fall, it will totally work year round.
I just love it.

This exact same stripe comes with a blue vegan leather accent (instead of the mustard I’m showing), and it’s great too.

And I thought these stripes were so fun with my camo dress!

I grabbed some other overhead shots to highlight some of my favorite straps.
Camo on stripes is always a good decision.

Stripes on stripes. LOVE.

I love how these colors pop off the plain black sweater. And although I showed this stripe combo with the brown bag above, I thought it was unexpected to pair it with the olive bag. I think it looks great! I’m having a lot of fun mixing and matching all the pieces.

Right before this picture, I also attached the skinny shoulder strap to the bag. I actually like how it looked on the bag as well, so I’ll be adding all the skinny straps to all the bags. Even though I probably won’t be carrying them on my shoulder, I like the design element they add to the bag. I just wish I would have done it sooner so you could have seen it throughout the post.

The black camo looks so pretty against this cream chenille sweater. I love the contrast and the metallic thread.

Erika Slaughter says
I’m LOVING all the fall colors in this post! Just wondering…do you think it’d look weird if I strapped my key fob to one of those cute straps? Would that work? You know I travel light. 😉
Lucy Dorfman says
I just ordered the black bag with the black camo strap. I absolutely love it, and you can’t beat the price! Thanks so much for sharing such a great deal. Love your blog! xoxo, Lucy
Your are going to LOVE them, Lucy!!!!
I’m definitely getting these bags for my sisters and my mom for Christmas! Now I just have to decide which combos. Awesome post!!!
Hey, Amanda! You are going to be the hero at Christmas, and I sure hope you’re getting one for yourself too! 🙂
You have become my favorite blogger for fashion! Not that it’s a contest, but..It’s always a contest! Love the bag and bag straps!, so great. Your athletic wear choices and the lace top from a few blogs ago! You are funny and fashionable!
Your son is adorable! Love your content.
Oh my goodness! Thank you so much, Shelly. You have totally made my day with your sweet words. xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Hi there! Could you please tell me how the chenille sweater fits/runs? Thank you!
Good Morning! It’s a relaxed fit. I’m wearing a small and it’s SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO soft!!! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Ame Andrews says
Can you confirm the structure of the bag? The bottom looks different in the photos. Your photos look flat and structured but the photos with the color options look rounded. Would this bag stand up on its own?
Hi, Ame! In the flat lays, I had to fold the bags so they would lay flat for the picture. The pictures of me wearing the bag give you an accurate representation of the shape. And yes, it will stand up on its own!!! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
EEEKKKKK! I love the straps! I have one of the earlier collaboration ones and I get compliments all the time! The camo and one of the striped ones are already in my cart!
Shay Shull says
Oh my goodness, Sheaffer! HOW COOL IS THIS?!?! I don’t know which combination I would get?! They’re all so dang cute! You’d show a pic of one that I loved and then the next pic, I would love just as much. SO FUN!!! Congrats, friend!!
Is the bag faux leather in a croc pattern? I’m sorta confused by the description, is it PU?
LOL, not that it matters – I’ve already ordered the black one and two extra straps. Love it!
Hey, Kate! Yes, that’s what it is! I’m not sure what PU is?!? Let me know, and then I’ll let you know! Ha! 🙂
Must be polyurethane.
I know you didn’t show this but I have a black coach bag…but really like the leopard strap!! Does that one have enough Black to go with a black bag?!
Hi, Casey! I think I would like that strap with a black bag. Now remember, it has the vegan leather bottom that’s brown, but I like mixing black and brown together! 🙂
Where are your bracelets from in your last picture?
Love following you!
Thanks, Jennifer! They are both Kendra Scott! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Laurie S says
I’m swooning over the green bag – is this more a hunter or olive green? What are the dimensions – or I can find on the website. I know you show it as a cross body, but how does it hang as an over one shoulder bag?
Hi, Laurie! I guess I would actually say that it is kind of between a Hunter and an Olive. It’s a very pretty green. The dimensions are at the top of the post, but I know it’s easy to miss information. It’s 10″ x 6″ x 11″ and made of a soft faux leather in a croc pattern. As far as hanging over the shoulder, the straps work well for that too! Hope this helps! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Laurie S says
Thanks for the dimensions and other info. Yup I skimmed right over it when I saw the green bag. Just ordered it. Can’t wait to get it. Perfect for fall and into winter. Yahoo! Xoxo Laurie S
Hi! Absolutely love your posts and have bought tons of wonderful items that you have recommended. Just wanted to let you know…it looks like the code doesn’t work for the camo straps. It gives you a message that says “BUILDABAG code isn’t valid for the item in your cart.” It does, however, work on the bag.
Hi, Kim! I just checked the code, and it appears to be working for the camo straps! It takes $14.40 off the price. Try again and let me now if you still have trouble! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
How cute!!!!! I love these straps for Fall!
