Deals & Steals: The Cambridge Satchel

Sooo thinking of applying for study abroad in London and all…I went ahead and made a purchase for a bag I just couldn’t resist…

                     The Cambridge Satchel in Oxblood – 15in

I’ve been eyeing this bag for a few months now, ever since I saw it in Bloomingdales way back in October. But, even as I coveted over the quality of the leather and the magnificent, dark wine red color, I couldn’t bring myself to spend $205 (excluding tax) on this bag at that moment. 

I am so glad I held off because I’ve found a site that sells most of the Cambridge Satchels (in an assortment of colors) at a price lower than that of department stores! 

image

Modcloth.com is a site that sells “retro, indie, and vintage-inspired clothing styles that are distinctively darling and uniquely ‘you’”! I was very doubtful at first, and wasn’t sure if they were selling legitimate satchels—but after doing my research, I have determined that they are indeed genuine and you honestly cannot beat the price!

So, if you’re just as in love with these classic, modern satchels, here is the link for you guys to check them out!

Houndstooth & Forest Green

In my attempt to keep warm in this polar vortex that is New York City, I’ve been pairing the warmest possible materials together. Some of my personal favorites are houndstooth, leather and wool

                                      Coat | Sweater | Skirt | Boots

With the three warmest materials combined into one single outfit, there isn’t anything more “frost-bite proof” than this!

Houndstooth is definitely one of my go-to’s for this season. Not only is it super warm and comfy, the print is both elegant and classic. The neural tones of the black, white, and gray print make this print extremely versatile and easy to incorporate into any outfit

My absolute favorite detail of this green wool skirt are the scalloped sides. They just add a fun little detail that make this otherwise ordinary skirt, stand out.

To accent the green more in the outfit, I made sure to keep my shoe selection simple, with a classic pair of black riding boots. These boots are leather in front, with a stretchy material in the back—which I absolutely love because it makes zipping them up over my leggings or skinny jeans so much easier!

And of course, the perfect pair of gloves becomes an essential in freezing conditions such as these. I love how these simple black gloves were transformed with a quilted texture, and a mini heart and bow charm as an embellishment.

Finally, you know that I never leave my apartment without some arm candy…These four pieces are pretty much my go-to as of right now. I love how each piece builds upon and accents each other…capturing the attention of whoever catches its glimmers
