Style: Ten Super Cute Satchels To Tote
What kind of bag (purse?!) do you have? I must admit that I am a total satchel fan. How about you?
I bought a vintage leather satchel a couple of years ago at a little shop on Gertrude Street in Fitzroy and I have used it ever since. It’s big enough to hold my MacBook Air (it’s a little 11″ one). And it’s got outside pockets for my phone and keys. Inside is a big cavern and I’ve got all kinds of little zip purses in there with everything filed fairly neatly: make up, business cards, emergency chargers, condiments (true!) Rustling around the bottom of the cavern are the things I forgot to file: sugar packets, the odd lipstick, loose change and about 34 fine liner pens. Obviously I don’t file everything… But I aspire to.
There are lots of reasons to love a satchel, but mine include: feeling like I am in Grade 2 when I sling it over my shoulder, not feeling too precious- because a satchel is a practical kind of bag, the shape is perfect for keeping a laptop safe and sound- and protected AND it’s a really great, enduring trans-seasonal piece.
I”ve done the leg work for you, in case you are looking to get a bit satchelly at your place. Have a click-through and see which is your kinda thing. Please note that I have dropped in one ‘Dream Satchel That No One Can Afford’ for inspirational purposes. We can just print that one out and stick in on the fridge (in case someone else wants to buy it for us!)
