It’s hard not to like a good shoulder bag. They are versatile, lightweight, easily enhance any outfit, and usually contain plenty of pockets in a compact space. As they have grown in popularity in recent years, many shoppers have swapped their oversized bags and tote bags for smaller, more practical shoulder bags that work in almost any situation. So when Oprah’s annual list of favorite things that hit Amazon last week included a simple yet stylish shoulder bag, we had to check it out.

At just $ 45, the K. Carroll Accessories Kelsey Shoulder Bag is built to impress. Inspired by classic camera bags, this small but powerful bag has a number of pockets and compartments. The exterior alone has three zippers and two separate compartments for optimal organization. The pockets are large enough to hide essentials like wallets and passports, and manage to do so without adding bulk. Inside the bag there are two integrated RFID blocking card slots and an interior zippered pocket for additional storage. Not bad for a 7.5 inch long bag.

And Oprah isn’t the only one obsessed with the Kelsey bag. It is currently on Amazon’s bestseller list, ranking second in the category of women’s shoulder handbags. According to reviews, buyers are particularly impressed with its size.

“I like that the main compartment, which is quite spacious, is divided into two sections and that there is also an additional exterior zippered compartment.” we wrote. “Large, versatile bag without being big and bulky!”

In addition to providing enough space, the Kelsey shoulder bag also shines in terms of quality. Made with fine vegan leather and featuring both an 8 inch handle and a 47 inch detachable strap, the bag looks and feels expensive. It is available in 12 colors and prints, ranging from soft neutrals and vibrant hues to leopard and plaid patterns.

“This cute shoulder strap falls just above the hip for the perfect fit,” said another customer. share. “I love the color turquoise. It will be great for my daughters’ weekend in Florida.”

We’re saying Oprah is right: for less than $ 50, you won’t find a more stylish, versatile, or better quality shoulder strap. Pick up a bag in one of dozens of colors to try it out for yourself. Or better yet, put it on your gift list this holiday season.
