As mentioned in my inaugural post, I consider myself rather a stylista than a fashionista because I take on trends and tweak them to what I am comfortable with. Most times it is good to invest in one’s wardrobe because as a wise man – Archbishop Benson Idahosa – once implied, the way we dress has a direct correlation with how we will be addressed. So every now and then especially when my supplier (my eldest sister) returns from her international ‘market’ trip I update my wardrobe; I am her number one customer and model…haha.
For some time now my major wardrobe target has been to acquire a Cambridge Satchel bag. I totally loveeee this piece because, I love it and more so because it is made of genuine leather. Wow!!! Don’t we all just love the smell of leather.
Using the signature word of an ex-colleague I would say that ” this satchel is SEXY!!!”…lol and the founder of the this satchel company deserves the title ‘baddest guy ever liveth’! This satchel is soooooo sexy that I can’t seem to get it off my mind and so, in the absence of the real thing my head has been working overtime styling the bag on some imaginary outfits *covers face*. Today am going to share with you two out of my numerous styles.
For the first look I decided to go for something corporate. A dark red long-line blazers worn over a light chiffon collar shirt on a black peg leg pants. Black and red colour blocked mid-heel pointies; bold neck piece, earring and bracelet to accent the outfit; Cambridge Satchel Company bag
The second look is a casual outfit that could be worn on a day off to the mall, when hanging out with friends or even on a casual date. The centre piece is an easy-breezy parsley dress worn with tan brogues and matching Cambridge Satchel Company leather croc music bag. Toss on a shawl to cover neck line, a metallic belt to highlight the dress and a straw fedora hat to complete the look. Off you go!!!
