H&MBridge Satchel Company.

Say hello to my new baby! Now I , like alot of people absolutely adore The Cambridge Satchel Company bags, but being such a lover of bags..and anything fashion related, I cant really afford to be splurging £100+ on a bag. When I saw this in H&M I ummed & arrred over whether or not to get it...and sadly left without it! I saw a very similar bag a few days later in Primark..it was only £9..but looked a bit too cheap! So I weighed up the pros and cons..and just decided to get the H&M version. £19.99 is a bit pricey for such a small bag, but its very cute & the fact that its gold means it'll go with anything! I'd definitely rather spend 20 quid on a look-alike..leaving more pennies for other things..and you know me.....theres always other things!! Im love-love-loving it! Perfect for work & play :) Also available in brown, black, patent black, dalmation & illuminous pink!
What do you think? Are you more into designer or dupe?

  1. It's beautiful! Some things, i guess it's best to buy the designer product but when it is a bag for £100+ I feel dupes are better. Such a lovely colour. Love it so much! x

    1. Yeh I agree! I love the odd designer piece but I go through bags so frequently and always change which ones I use , its better to buy a cheaper version that way I don't feel like I'm wasting! :)

  7. This is amazing! I was staring at the Primark one the other day but I agree, it's definitely cheap looking! I might have to treat myself to the patent black one come pay day aha. I'm such a fan of dupes, I wouldn't splash out on a £100+ satchel when there's always a new trend minutes away! xx

  14. Definitely wouldn't pay Cambridge prices, these and the Primark ones are great alternatives. There's also some gorgeous H! by Henry Holland ones at Debenhams in pink, yellow, purple and black. I have my eyes on the H&M dalmation one!

  16. This bag is so lovely, eee. I saw the bright pink one in my local h&m and even though I usually dislike all things neon but I even contemplated buying it. They're just so bright. Dupes all the way, why have something that's super expensive when you can have something that's almost identical and have lots of other stuff too!

  23. This bag is gorgeous, good find. I'm aaall about the dupes! There's always so much stuff I want to buy so I'd rather buy a few cheaper things than one designer item. Especially since there always seems to be good dupes out there :) xx

  27. With bags I'd usually TRY to go designer, like I am a complete sucker for the Cambridge satchels. But this is such a bargain and actually looks quite expensive! Such a statement and will be a great party bag for this winter!!
