On Luella, the quest for the perfect vintage satchel & being a klutz

Wow, this week has been busy! Super productive, but hectic. And to top it all, I managed to slip and fall down the stairs in the tube, so now I have bleeding knees just like a Caitlin Shearer girl, but not as pretty.
On Twitter the other day, Gala was asking what we wore to work. I work from home so you know pretty much how I dress for that, but I haven't yet shown you what I wear when I actually have to do some work outside of the house (various fashion/social media consultancy related missions). Since I never really know what type of office/meeting/people I am dealing with, I always wear something that reflects my usual style, but in a dolled up/more professional way if that makes sense... and I wear heels in the daytime, something that very rarely happens.

Now let me tell you about this satchel... I think I have been on a quest for the perfect satchel for about 2 years now. I have been toying with the idea of getting one from the Cambridge Satchel company, I have even considered getting the Alexa from Mulberry when I first caught a glimpse of it at Fashion Week last season. Despite the Alexa being a great bag, I can't quite bring myself to commit that much to a bag. To cut a long story short, I have been trawling Etsy to find the elusive perfect satchel. My demands were: has to be big enough to hold a4/a laptop/a camera, has to be leather, has to have a handle and a shoulder strap, has to be brown and old. I think this one fits the bill perfectly at the moment! I embellished it a bit with a few vintage-y brooches and so far it hasn't left my arm - so practical for work! So thank you Kennedy Holmes for providing me with the perfect satchel without having to break the bank.
