Disclaimer: This Item of the Day is not cheap. And while I would love to offer up an affordable treat for you guys, I instead present one that is… aspirational? Okay, fine, it’s expensive. Like, really expensive. It’s 98 pounds. Pounds as in the British currency that is currently kicking our currency’s butt, so it’s coming in at around $130 (using absolutely zero math, so don’t quote me on that). Okay, so maybe for a nice bag, that’s not too crazy. I mean, what do I know about these things? So yes, it’s pricey but it’s aspirational — we all aspire to own such a beautiful thing!
The first time I saw a Cambridge Satchel was a little over a year ago when the mainstream fashion scene really got into pairing neon with neutrals. I’ve been a neon aficionado since I decorated my first Caboodle with a dozen Lisa Frank stickers, so the second I spied that shocking orange bag, I knew I had to have one. I don’t have one yet, but one of these days, you guys? I will! (See? Aspirational!)
Now the Cambridge Satchel is popping up everywhere and in all sorts of colors, textures and materials. HelloGiggles’ very own Zooey Deschanel snapped a pic of her and a friend each with a monogrammed one (true confession: I love monograms). In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if after reading this post, you start spotting them everywhere! So get ahead of the trend and pick up yours today. Just be prepared for these pretty bags to cost a pretty penny.
