Animal prints are always a good idea, but there's really something about cheetah print that screams fall to me. It's just so warm and comforting, and when paired with plaid, well, let's just say it's a visually-appealing combination. So when I saw this adorable little Status Anxiety cross body a few weeks ago, I knew that a) I had to have it (duh), and b) that it and my Zara button-up would be fast friends. And you know what? She's even made a few other friends in my wardrobe, that little social butterfly! Print and buttery leather aside, I'm loving this bag for the size (no more sore shoulders!) and compartments, one of which is even detachable. And can we take a moment to address how cute the lining is? It's just such a clean, classic print that pairs so well with the pop of cheetah print — Have mercy! (anyone else getting a sudden urge to re-watch Full House?)

If you guys haven't heard of Pursebox yet, I would definitely recommend checking them out —  they're a new Canadian site that makes buying leather purses in Canada easy and affordable (no duties!). Their focus is on quality craftsmanship and interesting brands, steering clear of those cookie-cutter labels you see on every other woman walking down the streetnot to name names or anything, but one such brand may or may not rhyme with 'cycle whores' — just saying!

Right now, I'm really loving their Status Anxiety offerings, particularly this bag and this one right here. They even have a house brand of bags to choose from, which are really cute (especially this hobo bag!). But remember: This is only the beginning; Pursebox will be adding some great lines from around the world in the months to come, so stay tuned to see which items make the cut — I know I will! xx
