Review: Red Vintage Leather Satchel 1960s Style

Ever since I saw the movie Confessions of a Shopaholic I have been looking for a vintage leather satchel or briefcase similar to the one Rebecca has. Well, now I’ve finally found one that I love. It’s not Prada, but it’s still gorgeous and I am so happy to have it!

And the lovely Tracy at Accessory Bank made it possible! She sent me the red vintage leather satchel for free and I am really grateful to her for being so generous! Tracy has a great Ebay store where she sells all kinds of things. From women’s bags and purses to school items and jewellery – Tracy’s shop offers you a variety of items and I am sure you can find the right thing for you! So if you are curious about Tracy and her great shop, please click here.

The following pictures show some of her items:

Lovely things, right? But now let’s get back to my fabulous vintage leather satchel - its color is wonderful and so is its quality. The leather feels really smooth and it just feels wonderful to touch it. I can’t wait to wear it! This vintage leather satchel will make a great companion to everyone – you can wear it to school or when you go shopping – whatever you have in mind, the satchel is spacious enough so your favorite items can fit in. You can even take your laptop with you as it definitely fits in.

And now here are a few more details regarding this wonderful satchel:

  • Luxurious thick leather outer in red.
  • Front flap complete with two buckle fasteners.
  • Small ID slip on the front pocket.
  • Adjustable shoulder strap in matching red leather.
  • Spacious main compartment large enough to fit an A4 folder.
  • A front pocket ideal for smaller items such as a purse, wallet or mobile phone.
  • Height - 28cm
  • Width - 37cm
  • Depth - 9cm
  • Maximum Strap Length - 53cm from top of the bag to shoulder

And you know what? This vintage leather satchel is also available in brown and dark blue, only it’s smaller:

All in all, I am really happy with my new satchel as it looks very elegant and sophisticated; moreover, it’s spacious and it’s made of leather so it’s very durable and that’s why I would recommend it to everyone who is looking for a vintage leather satchel at a reasonable price. My leather satchel costs only £ 45.00 (plus postage) but the smaller ones are cheaper.

P.S. These vintage leather satchels are very popular right now and I can fully understand why – they are great and make every outfit complete!

Thanks again Tracy for sending me this lovely satchel!
