Splendid Ashton Satchel – $128.00 (on sale for $96.00)
This bag arrived fully protected with plastic, tissue paper, and all of the necessary items to ship a handbag and have it arrive in perfect condition. This satchel measures 16-1/4″W 9-1/4″H x 6″D, and has an inside zip pocket, two open pockets on the opposite side from the zip pocket (one is usually for a cell phone, but I never know what to shove in the other…usually my chewing gum ends up there so it doesn’t spill all over my bag), and a zip pocket on the outside. How cute is that tassel and suede detail on the bottom?
Here’s a quick snapshot about the bag’s brand:
It all started with the quest for the ultimate t-shirt. On that journey we discovered a love for softness in every form. From the fabric you wear, to the moments you create. It’s this philosophy that drives the way we do things.
At Splendid we believe in bringing people together. In good company and great conversation. We believe in taking time to enjoy the little things and more importantly celebrate the big things. We think that people should cherish every moment. Live it up. Laugh out loud. Play a little. We believe that home is truly where the heart is and that you should be able to bring a little piece of it with you everywhere you go. That’s why what we create fits seamlessly into your life. Filled with color, softness, and a hint of playfulness. It’s casual, but polished. So no matter what you’re doing you always look as good as you feel in these moments.
I love these pockets. I use this for my cell phone and my key for easy access!
Check out that super cute lining! The lining inside the bag makes it really easy to spot anything you’re looking for, and it is made of a heavy duty fabric that will stand the test of time.
Here’s a look at how I used the bag for a day look. I kept it pretty simple with my Everlane tee, a Vince Camuto pencil skirt, and my Toms ballet flats. The crossbody strap does extend further, I just had it pretty short!
This is everything I was able to fit in the bag, with plenty of room to spare I might say. I wouldn’t add a lot more, just because this made the bag pretty heavy!
I always like to see how a bag looks for me when I’m looking down, so I’ve included one here for you. You can really see the white stitching here, which is a great accent to the bag.
I have to be very honest, I am so awkward when taking pictures. I literally said to my husband “I don’t know what to do with my face.” Next month, I’ll try to smile more, but I was definitely trying not to laugh here.
This is my evening look; my Theory sweater (I was headed to church, and even though it’s super hot outside still, the inside of our sanctuary is always like the North Pole), a Uniqlo pleated skirt, and Cole Haan suede pumps.
Verdict: I think this subscription has potential, but I also think there is potential to mislead people based on the brands they mention on their front page vs. the brands they’re sending right now. The brands they advertise are Michael Kors, Cole Haan, Vince Camuto, Fossil, Kate Spade, Sam Edelman, LeSportSac, and Jessica Simpson (a wide variety of price points there). My bag this month was from a more recognizable brand than last month, which is great.
I loved my bag this month. It’s the perfect bag for fall and winter, with the suede accents and the on trend tassel (which is removable). The lining is super cute, and the style is one that I will use regularly. I’ve been carrying this bag exclusively since I received it, which is impressive since I love my current everyday bag.
