Lovely Leather: Mabel&Lou

An update to my post last week on leather love, I just picked up a sweet leather satchel off Trademe. It’s a Mabel&Lou bag in a style I suspect is a few seasons old. It’s has a tooled/stamped pattern in the leather and a gorgeous lining in patterned purple fabric. The bag is pre-loved but in great condition and guess what? It may look small but it’s large enough to fit my iPad and deep enough to fit my SLR camera at the same time. My issues with not enough compartments has been completely solved. It has 7 compartments. That’s more than I know what to do with. I’m a meat-eating, leather-wearing animal lover. It my sound like a contradiction, but it’s not. Pre-loved leather is really the ideal for me. If I can give this bag a second life, better than it being forgotten in a wardrobe somewhere or destined for landfill.
