Leather Satchel Company's 15" British Racing Green satchel bag

Sorry for my blogging hiatus lately... It's been a very hectic week involving seeing the family and friends, packing, moving house and starting my new job tomorrow. EEK. I just HAD to introduce my new work bag to you though... My parents bought it me last week and I've been in awe of it ever since. I've only used it once so far and I'm terrified of wrecking it. Behold the leather satchel (made by theLeather Satchel Company!

Beautifully wrapped up, it was delivered after just two days of ordering because of my awkwardness. I really wanted it to be delivered before the weekend, so I had it in time for work etc. Due to the time and effort they put into every bag they make, I was worried I wouldn't get it in time. After a quick conversation with their customer service team, I was told they'd get to work on it the following morning. At 3pm that day, I was told it was already with the courier so I'd get it the next day! I became the proud owner of a 15" British Racing Green leather satchel at 9am on Thursday morning.

I can't believe how beautiful the bag is. It's very sturdy, and you can see the care that was put into it by looking at every stitch, lining and corner. The colour is a lovely deep green shade that will go with pretty much any outfit. Close up, I did notice a couple of marks on the front, but I was ensured by my mother (who is self-named leather expert) that it was natural for that to happen. "The cow had some bruises." That quote made me feel a bit guilty, I must admit.

I chose a 15" size, so it's big enough to fit my MacBook in, along with an A4 pad and my usual belongings I always keep with me (like my phone, purse etc). I also had my initials embossed on the front. I don't really know why... I guess I wanted to show that I am proud to own one of these, along with the fact it makes it more personal to me.

Even Xander cat likes it...

It looks perfect right now, but I know that as time goes on, the satchel will look 'worn', giving off the vintagey effect it should have. It cost £99 in total, but it's definitely a staple piece to my wardrobe and one that will be mine for years and years to come.
