I ordered the Talbot's calfhair leopard satchel when it dropped to a super low price. I think it's really nice, especially on sale. It's currently showing as sold out online, but does keep popping back and may still be in store, so I thought I'd still share. My only issue with it is that the handles aren't long enough to put over my shoulder. I can't decide if that's a dealbreaker.
Front with flap closed (snaps):
Front flap open:
Back of bag (tagged, b/c if they don't have it in warehouse stock, they ship it from the closest store):
Bottom of bag. Would have be awesome if they had added studs to the bottom for when it sits on the floor.
Inside is plain cotton. One side has a big zippered section, the other has a cell phone and lipstick (?) pocket.
I'd have to hold it just over my arm, which I don't mind too much. I'd likely not be using this one when carting around my 4-year-old anyway.
What do you think?
They also have the Haircalf Tote on sale if you're looking for something bigger.
I personally have been drooling over the J.Crew Edie forever and have thought that perhaps I just need to save for that one. Oh, and the new Attache bag is gorgeous, but dayum, it is pricey.
Here are some other options if you're in the market:
Banana Republic Mad Men Satchel
Steve Madden Pony Up Satchel
BCBG Max Azria Sophia Flap Clutch
Bag Snob for DKNY
Have a great day!
