I was on a major search for the perfect black leather satchel for quite some time (I think I mentioned it a couple of times here on the blog). Everything I had been seeing was too small or not what I wanted to spend. I even took the plunge on the Sole Society Weekender bag thinking I could pull it off has a handbag. It ended up being too big (duh), but I kept it anyway because the bag is absolutely stunning, the perfect structure, and super soft. As a side note, if they made this bag at 13 or so inches wide, it would be a big seller. Get on it, people! I had seen this Tory Burch Robinson satchel in a couple of photos and knew it was the ideal size I was looking for… but of course, they don’t make this size anymore (wah wah). I went on an Ebay search and there she was. I had a tough time with the seller, but in the end I made it mine and could not be happier! For reference, this bag was used, but in great/almost perfect condition. I got it for almost 50% off the retail price.
I got a bunch of questions on Instagram about tips on using Ebay. I wrote a post about it here, but I may have to do another… if you have any questions you want me to answer, please leave them in the comments.
