Inches 2 Style

A blog on fashion, motherhood and personal development.


****I have already mentioned my love for accessories on this blog. In this post I will be taking one item of accessory and show-casing the different types available in the market. I will show you how it has been styled by other bloggers or celebrities. I will also style this item. This is in order to give you a few ideas on how you can wear a particular accessory. Enjoy!

I've been seeing satchels all over the blogosphere for example Catherine of Not Dressed as a Lamb and Bonnie of Flashes of Style, and I've fallen for them. I'm on the look out for one!!
Now satchels remind me of old movies, the elk of Oliver Twist. Their shape is quite defined.
They come in a variety of colours form neutrals like black, brown (I consider brown to be a neutral) and nude.

Satchels can also be found in brighter colours and neon, for those who are daring enough to venture away from neutral bags.

When carrying a neon satchel remember to keep the rest of your outfit muted so that you can let the bag stand out.

This is how I'd style this neon pink satchel.

Would you carry a satchel???

  1. I've got mixed feelings about satchels, I like them yet they make me think too much "college-style". I like how you styled the pink one though! :)
