UPDATE (07/08/2012): So I wished for a neon yellow matte version and Steven by Steve Madden answered my prayers by releasing a large matte and almost identical version of the Cambridge satchel. And I love the color variety of these bags. It does not only come in neon yellow but also black, cobalt blue, tangerine, fuchsia and watermelon as well.

Steven by Steve Madden “BPANDORA” Satchel

If you can’t get your hands on the original Cambridge satchel or simply can’t afford one, Steven by Steve Madden has got you covered. Their “BPANDORA” satchel comes in almost the same colors as the Fluoro but is way cheaper at $78 and also much easier to get hold of. I’m just a bit bummed that the Madden version is faux leather and I also wished there’d be a matte version available. Still a great alternative though!

  • the bag is cool!

  • My favorite satchel brand is the Leather Satchel Co. Boy, do they offer a ton of customizations and quick delivery. I think the Steve Maddens are cute though! Very Kate Spade. :)) If you’re a first time leather satchel buyer, may I recommend this guide?
