Angela and Roi sent me this great black double clasp satchel bag. I've been in need of a cute black bag in this size, so it graced my doorstep at the perfect time! It’s actually really roomy inside and fits everything I need day-to-day, my camera even rests inside nicely. Perfect for New York Fashion Week.
