Madelyn Cline Wore the $298 It Bag I've Wanted Since High School

You know the one that got away? Well, it's back. And we just spotted it on the arm of Madelyn Cline. The actress was photographed en route to the Tag Heuer Carrera event last week in London sporting the truly iconic (it's in the name) Small Sam Icon Spazzolato Leather Shoulder Bag by Kate Spade New York

The brand, which burst onto the accessories scene in the '90s and has been beloved since, was originally known for its sleek, streamlined designs. This shoulder bag in particular was a favorite across the U.S.—even in the Midwest where I grew up. Given the resurgence in early aughts fashion, I must admit I wasn't surprised to see Kate Spade reissue this shoulder bag style, but was I delighted? Absolutely. 

So, if you've been eyeing this particular purse since your high school days, take this as a sign to buy it now. Keep scrolling to shop Cline's iconic Kate Spade purse, plus 13 more black shoulder bags we love.
