Cambridge Satchel

I've always had a lot of love for traditional leather satchels but couldn't really justify the price when I am so fickle with bags.  This all changed when I set eyes on the metallic gold version. I had to have it! Luckily for me it was birthday time. Nothing better than a receiving something you love as a gift.  I opted for the 11" version and am so impressed with the quality.  The only negative about this bag is it's still pretty big but you can't really fit anything in it! Even after using it daily for the past month the leather is very rigid.  Hopefully it will soften a bit and I will be able to fit more in it.  As long as it doesn't lose it's shape!

For a bit of school girl chic just add a bowler hat...


If you're interested in how the 11" looks size wise:


What colour would you go for? If I was going to get another one I think it would have to be this purple one, isn't it just the most amazing shade?!

    1. It's not good for your back/shoulders to cart too much stuff around. They do it in two other sizes though

  9. I thought about splashing out with birthday money on one of these, but to be honest I'd probably want the largest one they've got and I decided it might end up looking a bit bulky. I love this gold one though, it's so eye-catching!
