Hi everyone! It seems like it’s been forever since I last wrote a post on the blog, and I’m so sorry about my lack of activity!
For the last few months, I was enrolled in a class at a university! It’s been about five years since I was in school for my undergraduate degree, and I didn’t realize I’d missed it so much! I’m actually preparing to apply for a graduate program soon, and that’s why I’ve been a little less active in my blogging activities lately, but I hope this new chapter can bring me one step closer to achieving all of my goals!
With that said, these past few months have been one of the busiest times of my life! With a full-time job, weekly night classes, as well as this blogging venture, I’ve pretty much been in a “go, go, go!” state of mind! The quarter is finally over now, though, so I’m back with a post that’s dedicated to one of my newest favorite brands, Saint Lombard!
Who is Saint Lombard?
For those of you who’ve never heard of Saint Lombard, they are an Italian handbag company that specializes in the craft of timeless, quality bags that last through ages. Saint Lombard works solely with Italian tanneries that use the ancient practice of vegetable tanning leather and carefully handcraft their products. Since their bags are vegetable tanned instead of chemically tanned, they are made to withstand the test of time, growing stronger and more lustrous with age. Saint Lombard is committed to quality and sustainability and strive for both for functionality and style.
Aside from their commitment to sustainability and creating products with materials and methods that are safe for the planet, another important aspect of Saint Lombard that captivated me is their belief in the “9-to-9 Simplicity.” As a young woman working in the corporate environment, it’s very important for me to have a trustworthy and functional bag that works for my long days at the office. Not only do I want my bag to be able to hold all of my daily essentials, it’s crucial to have a bag that I can also use to store all of my stationary items, important documents, and work-related files, all while not sacrificing my personal style.
Saint Lombard’s bags are designed to be roomy enough to carry all of the essentials, yet it’s also stylish enough to send the right message, no matter what setting. As you all know, I’ve been running from the office to school to social events these last few months, and my Saint Lombard bag has, without fail, been an absolute asset to me in both my professional, as well as personal life.
How was my Experience with Saint Lombard?
Upon receiving my Saint Lombard bag in the mail, I was pleasantly surprised at the detailed packaging of the bag. Not only was the bag carefully packed away into the box, I love how it came with its own sleeve, which protected the quality leather. Right away, as I opened the box, my nostrils were filled with the unmistakable scent of quality leather, and I was thoroughly impressed with Saint Lombard’s exceptional attention to detail!
How Would You Style It?
Saint Lombard offers three distinct styles – the crossbody, the bucket, and the tote. While the tote is the most functional of all, I was leaning towards the crossbody or the bucket, since they match my personal style a bit more. Ultimately, I opted for the bucket bag because it’s stylish, yet versatile, which is perfect for someone like me, who has a super busy schedule and has to run from place to place.
This bag comes in both black and cognac, but since I typically stick to a more monochromatic color palette, I decided to go for the black bag as well! This bag matches all of my work outfits perfectly, especially on days when I opt for black high-waisted trousers, since this bag’s cute silhouette can help add just a subtle pop of fun back into my ensembles!
I also love wearing this bag in a more casual environment, and it still looks timeless and classic when paired with a more casual summer outfit, like I did here.
Would I Recommend Saint Lombard?
As many of you probably know, a quality bag is an investment that most of us are not willing to scrimp on because exceptional craftsmanship is so hard to come by. With Saint Lombard, however, I never have to worry about the quality of my bags because they’re crafted with only the finest materials in sustainable ways that are safe for our planet, but they are also so functional yet fashionable!
For all of you working girls and guys out there, you can’t go wrong with Saint Lombard’s versatile bags that are not only stylishly classy, but also versatile and functional. Their commitment to quality and sustainability allows them to craft timeless bags that will make your life easier, better, and more beautiful.
