Glad I saw the Cambridge Satchel at schu first!

I spent a few sleepless nights obsessing over the yellow Cambridge Satchel a few weeks ago. Vince ended my agony and told me he'll buy me one for Valentine's Day! Hooray! So off we traipsed to Chocolate schubar at Power Plant and committed by finally scratching the credit card. I'm just waiting for my bag to arrive next month! EQ is being mightily tested!

Now, as I was waiting, someone told me that Kate Spade's SS '11 campaign stars the ethereal Bryce Dallas Howard and leather bags that are soooo similar to the Cambridge satchel. Now I love Kate Spade. I really really do. So imagine my anguish when I saw the ad in this month's InStyle:

Sleepless I was yet again! Look at how gorgeous these are!

And then I saw that the Kate Spade Essex Scout is smaller by an inch and yet P11,000++ more expensive!!! Whew! The Cambridge Satchel is just P5,799 and it's very very British and very very cool. 

You know what the best sleep aid is? Knowing you made the right choice--whether it's as serious as choosing your life partner or as silly as choosing a bag! I'm sooo happy I chose the Cambridge Satchel. Can't wait can't wait!

Want your own? To order, go to schu's Facebook page.


  1. Ooh, pretty! Reminds me my old schoolbags in primary school, before I switched to LeSportsac, lol.

    (But if I could afford it, I'd love a PS1 medium leather, in vidla (purple) or saddle (orange).)

  2. Thanks to your post, Frances, I now feel like I need to have these satchels in my life or life wouldn't be worth living!

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. been crushing on satchels lately.. wish I can own one soon. Good choice!

  4. I heart the London-ness of the Cambridge Satchels :)

  5. Oy, Chin, are you making fun of me? =P

  6. Hi Frances, this blog gave me sleepless nights looking for this yellow Kate Spade satchel. We don't have exclusive store Kate Spade's here in UAE. And they don't deliver to UAE if I purchased on line either. LOL. -Kindly drop by.
