Satchel Addiction Turned Obsession: Satchel in Oxblood — An Alternative to Red

Note: This post includes an affiliate link

While I’ve been in love with Clara’s Red Satchel, this Oxblood one is also extremely good looking and seems a bit more professional (I already have my bright blue Cambridge Satchel Co. Satchel, so I may need a more subdued one for interviews). I’m intrigued because the reviewers seem to love it. In fact, one review on Modcloth said “ even though it is red the brown undertones will mean it goes with almost anything.” There is a handle, too. Hmmm…

I think I already have my satchel quota for the next couple of months, but if this one is still available later, I may just pick it up.

New Doctor Who Episode Sparks Satchel Addiction

I just watched the new Doctor Who episode. Clara and the Doctor were brilliant, but what stole the show for me was Clara’s red satchel. I watched as she hid in corners with the Queen and swooped in at the end — all the while, her beautiful red satchel bounced and sashayed behind her. It evoked images of schoolgirls with sophistication. I had to have one.

I began researching satchels immediately. I searched high and low. That’s when I saw it. An article by Mashable about the Cambridge Satchel Co and how the founder turned 600 Pounds into a million dollar industry using social media and blogger outreach. I loved it. I loved the rags to riches story. But what was even better for me, was why she created the company. She created it to pay for school fees so her daughters wouldn’t be bullied at the public school. In fact, the company has donated to anti-bullying organizations. I was sold. Now, I had to find the best satchel for the right price (mom on a  budget).

I Googled every place until I found the perfect bag — a metallic blue satchel from Cambridge Satchel Co (it had to be from this company, their history sold me) that would fit my Surface — on sale! Squee!!

 

Once I get my hands on this lovely metallic blue bag, I will post a picture as I open the package.
