Concrete Catwalk // Luxe Leather

Tromping around the city amidst some rainy days last weekend, I rediscovered my love for the basic backpack, and was very happy that this new little vintage beauty of mine arrived just in time for a bit of exploring.

Not only does the whole hands-free thing come in very handy in the city, but the iconic quilting and chain-link strap details definitely make it stand out, and I can say that so far it’s been one of my most exciting wardrobe-related purchases to-date!

Buying vintage designer handbags will by no means become a hobby of mine, but let’s just say that the arrival of my first purchase from LXR & Co. has turned me in to someone who is not ashamed to ogle their amazing selection of bags whenever I get a chance.  It is one of the only online shopping sites that I check regularly, as I’d hate to think that I’d miss out on something truly special… Plus, they update their selection everyday and have amazing weekend sales!

On another leather-related note: Be sure to keep reading for a peek at some of the highest-waisted shorts you have ever seen, and the start of strappy sandal season on S&P!
