CAMBRIDGE SATCHEL!



ok, if you know me, you know i have been obsessed with Cambridge satchels, or just structured-leather satchels over all. it has been 1 year and a half of just pure lust and obsession with these bags.
i have entered soooo many giveaways for it, since i cannot afford it!
And, maybe i'm just cheesy, this bag came to me because we are destined to be together!!!

Thanks ReQoop! it was soooo unexpected that they chose my picture as the winner of the colorspotting giveaway they had back in May!
the color is so classy, red was my first pick when they asked me to choose the color! and you can  definitely see my biggest smile since I was literally beaming when i opened the package!

a review of the satchel after the break...



the inside is also red, so it's very lovely. The leather is INCREDIBLY smooth---so when I saw my 1st scratch on it, I was seriously not amused, and so the bag hasn't left it's dust bag since...now I will only use it on special occasions! i'm taking care of this baby.
there's the logo~ the stitching is exquisite, and the bag seems pretty sturdy.
it has 9 holes in the strap so that's very very good. i didn't change the length of mine, since it was perfect for me.
i'm not going to lie, the buckles are a pain in my asgardian soul.  however this is the little trick that I do to save time on opening my bag...also beware the sides of those leather closure are going to be frayed when you constantly open/close the bag. i don't know if it'll break soon, because i really really hope not, and  i'm already fretting about it.
so this is what the bag looks like on a 5-feet-short person. it's a very appropriate size. btw, it's a 13 inch classic red satchel.
and here's another picture of me, beaming like my life is already accomplished!
