The Original Stylish Crossbody Bag

1 Nov

Since the original Cambridge Satchel was introduced in 2008 it’s been a cult favorite among the fashion crowd, bloggers went absolutely crazy for it. The academic silhouette a la book bag style can be dressed up or dressed down and the cross body style is perfect if you need your hands free to shop etc. It’s a perfectly stylish mom bag for that reason.  Made in the UK, these bags come in a variety of sizes and colors including metallic, neon and pastels. I consider this bag a MUST HAVE in your collection.  The Cambridge Satchel Co.  has a variety of bags available and they also have a great clearance section that includes bags with slight flaws that are noted.

 

 

Cambridge bags are very reasonably priced and very well made bag (usually $120-$220) If you don’t already own one of these timeless bags, I suggest you make it happen. You will be glad you did!

 

…but don’t you fret if that’s out of your budget……Steve Madden makes a very similar buckled bag for about half the price and it’s on sale at Nordstrom!!!!! YAY!

 

Shop Steve Madden bags at Nordstrom.

Step Outside of Your Fashion Box

5 Apr

I love color, I love bold, I love height on a heel.

I usually don’t like thick or stacked heels, Don’t really wear platforms either. I prefer stiletto’s or wedges if I’m going for height.

I saw these Steve Madden Audrinaa color block platform heels and kinda fell in love and can’t tell you why.  So I bought them and they’ve arrived.

I have no idea when wear or how I will wear these. I have a solid blue shift dress in mind????? who knows, but the point is we all have to step out of our fashion box once in a while, it’s the only way our personal style evolves. When I muster up the courage to wear these in public I’ll post a picture.

Now, next time YOU go shopping and are on the fence about something that’s not your “typical” style GO FOR IT!
