Once in a while I'll discover a real bargain online. I actually spotted mum carrying this miniature satchel and knew I had to order one for myself. I tend to gravitate towards 'XXL-hold-everything-including-the-kitchen-sink' bags but sometimes I wish I could leave the house with less to lug around. Downsizing my bag means being more selective about its contents but I loved these mini satchels so much I'm prepared to give it a go.
The satchels are from Yoshi, a brand who make lots of lovely bags in all styles (bigger satchels available). These real leather mini ones are £29.50 at the moment on Amazon, they come in a variety of colours, and it's free shipping! Last week the bags were priced at £35 (the usual retail price) so grab one quick if you want to save yourself some pennies.
I chose 'nude' which will be ideal for summer. I can see this being a bag suitable for fancy occasions as well as everyday use. Mum has the 'grey' which doesn't seem to be available anymore but it's actually much closer to a olive green than grey. Something to be aware of, the colours may not be 100% true to their on-screen photos, but I'm very happy with the nude colour, no surprises there.
They are the 8.5" Tilney and they come with a long shoulder strap (adjustable) a pocket at the front and fasten with two magnetic studs. Being real leather they are a bit stiff but strong and I can see this satchel lasting for years. Which colour will you go for? I think the fuchsia pink is next on my wish list...
