WiW & K/R? Oxblood Cambridge Bicycle Satchel

I have long lusted after one of these beauties and when the chance came up to get one on sale (and on store credit!!) I definitely leapt for my favourite of the colours that wasn't the ubiquitous red.

What do you ladies think of the colour and the bag? I will mostly carry it in one shoulder, but I enclosed a cross body pic as well.

Also,just a quick run down the block to fetch the new Downton Abbey DVDs. Nothing too exciting today; but my cobalt skinnies got to come out to play (briefly in -40)!

    This satchel is stunning! The colour is so rich and the leather looks very luxe. Keep!

    I am having trouble seeing the photos on my phone today but this reminds me a bit of vintage Coach. Lovely and classic. I would say the color is wintery, but has potential to cross seasons with a springy bag scarf or charm.

    I love the bag and the color, but I ordered one in cobalt and sent it back. I just couldn't see having to buckle and unbuckle to open and close the purse every time. Maybe you're more patient than I am! Or does yours have a different type of closure?

    I think the structure and sheen of the satchel support the formal and ladylike aspects of your style.

    Oh, I grew up with satchels so open and closing a traditional one is no problem for me. There is one with magnets if you prefer.

    Super cute bag. Crossbody bags are so useful, too! Always nice to have your hands free.
