Katie Holmes Can’t Stop Wearing This Versatile Shoulder Bag

No matter how many purses we have hanging in our closet, we always end up carrying the same one. (Because when transferring carriers, something always gets left behind.)

For Katie Holmes, that item is her 3.1 Phillip Lim Alix Shoulder Bag. The Dawson’s Creek alum, 40, has been spotted carrying the leather crossbody on several occasions, proving that it’s one of the most versatile accessories she owns.

The Alix Shoulder Bag is made with micro embossed calfskin. It features an adjustable shoulder strap, along with a paper-clip-like fastener on the front flap. The purse retails for $850 and comes in three different colors: black, burgundy and tan.

Now when we say the bag is “versatile,” we’re not only talking about it being the ideal size, which is large enough to fit a small wallet, phone and other daily necessities.

Instead, we mean that Holmes has brought the shoulder bag to a wide range of places—like the gym, the grocery store and an outing in New York City with her daughter, Suri Cruise.  And the purse complemented her look in each of those instances.

Holmes’s outfits have included everything from a pencil miniskirt to sweatpants, so think of this as the bag version of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.

Guess celebs are just like us—well, at least when it comes to carrying the same purse on a daily basis.
