I heard about CarbonCopy through twitter and immediately went to check out the shop on Etsy. It’s full of carefully selected vintage finds, all in good condition and very reasonably priced – whether you’re shipping to the US or international. Also, you can always expect new stock, as the three girls who started it update their shop every Monday.
The great thing about vintage is that it’s so easy to incorporate it into your personal style. There was one item in particular that I could see seamlessly blending into my wardrobe. And being a student, it’s important for me to be able to have comfortable and fashionable shoes to slip on and run to class in. Here’s how I would wear CarbonCopy’s vintage find to class:

First semester might almost be over, but that doesn’t mean that I’m still not searching for the perfect school bag. I’m not a fan of wearing backpacks, so I’ve been looking for a nice side bag to stash my laptop, notebooks and everything else I lug to class. I thought that with the sophisticated lady trend rising, it would be easy to find the perfect side satchel for my needs. But although many structured bags are being made, not many are big enough to fit everything I need.
For a long time I was considering the Longchamp Le Tote, but the round, thin straps had me worried seeing as I carry some pretty heavy books around. I was thinking about the leather satchel from H&M too, but the $150 price tag just wasn’t an option considering I only work part-time.
I was so excited when I saw the new Kimchi Blue Sophisticated Satchel at Urban Outfitters. It has a nice, structured shape, a side strap and its big enough to fit all my junk. It’s on-trend wit the FW runway shows, but simple and classic enough in style to last me longer than just one season. And, at $68 USD, it’s definitely more affordable than the H&M and Longchamp versions.
