cambridge satchel :: asos // cardigan + dress + belt :: primark // shoes :: everything £5 shop

i wore this outfit out grocery shopping on sunday (and to work on monday...no shame) because i love everything about it and can't get enough of wearing it. wearing this outfit made me feel happy and so i suppose i should have taken a picture of it (#100dayshappy) - but, oh wait! i did! lucky me. 

i've had the bag for about a week now, but with all the rain, i've only managed two outings for it - both over the weekend while the sun was out to play. i still maintain that these bags are incredibly expensive, but when kim and donna bullied me into buying it (on sale, naturally), we justified it on a 'value per wear' scenario. so far i've worn it twice. so... it's still bloody expensive. i feel special with it though, like it's some sort of badge that means i'm part of a member's only club now... i know that's stupid, but for the price, i'm allowed to make myself self feel better - however it works for me. am i right?

the dress + cardi are both bargains i picked up shopping on saturday, and i nabbed these shoes a few months back from one of those "closing down/everything must go" shops in your local shopping centre. i think the shoes are the dress are a magical combination, and that eyelash cardi!!! it's my soulmate. i'm in love.

what's your take on the ol' cambridge satchel, price wise?
would you? have you? tell me!

  2. You look stunning, I adore this outfit. I love those bags, but have yet to get one. They do over-price them at times, but I think when you like one, you like it and sacrifice something else to get one. I think it's awesome though :) x
