Treat yourself to Oprah's favorite crossbody — it's just $36 with our exclusive code

Great for travel, it's RFID-blocking and packed with pockets.

When Oprah speaks, we listen. When Oprah shares something she loves, we add to cart. As the original influencer, she's not only a beacon of true style and impeccable taste, but she also understands how little things make life better and brighter. Like the versatile K. Carroll Kelsey Crossbody. It's a standout from one of her Favorite Things lists and we've got an exclusive code — YahooKelseyto bring it down to $36. Note: This deal is valid through Dec. 31.

This 7.5-inch stunner is RFID-protected, 100% vegan and available in 12 colors and patterns.

Why is it a good deal?

Prices for this bag usually range between $40 and $45, so there's not much sticker shock even when it's not on sale. But at $36 for a limited time with our YahooKelsey code, the K. Carroll Kelsey Crossbody is a downright ridiculous deal. Treat yourself to something special for the new year!

Why do I need this?

Oprah's favorite crossbody comes in punchy neutrals like Army Green, as well as Plaid, Leopard Print, Taupe and Chartreuse.

The Kelsey is an organizational wonder (three zippered exterior pockets, two compartments), and its RFID (radio-frequency identification) protective card slots help keep your credit/debt cards safe while you're traveling or just out and about.

In one of her annual faves roundups, Oprah gushed: “I lost count of this vegan-leather crossbody’s compartments. That’s a good thing because it means it can hold all your essentials. And hooray for all the color options!”

Agreed. We also love the crossbody style for keeping our hands free and the bag on our person, whether we're going out on the town or running errands.

What reviewers say:

Amazon shoppers — more than 1,400 of 'em — are smitten with this cute little wonder bag, too. "Stylish, convenient crossbody," said one happy shopper. "The handbag has a detachable strap that is just the right length for wearing crossbody or on one shoulder. It also has a handle for carrying when you just want to grab and go. I love that the main compartment, which is quite roomy, is divided into two sections and that there is an additional outside zippered compartment as well. All-around great bag without being large and bulky!"

This is a "purse with purpose," agreed another. "I can get my phone, a small wallet and one other small item in this bag along with a car starter and a tube of lipstick. I've needed for some time to downsize in purses and stop carrying things I don't really need, which causes pain in my shoulder. The purse is attractive and perfect for traveling." But FYI: "The only drawback is the strap could have been a little longer."

If you're looking for a small, go-to purse, fans say this 7.5-by-5.5 crossbody is The One. "I have probably purchased 10 bags a year hunting for the perfect bag," shared this fan, explaining that "they are either too big and I fill them up, they get too heavy and kill my neck and back, or they are too small and I have to take 10 things out to get to what I need. This is perfect!"
