A bloggers BFF: The Brook Satchel by Remi & Emmy. GIVEAWAY!

Wednesday, February 29, 2012


Meet Remi & Emmy.
A new bag line I am beyond excited to be working with!


Inside a bloggers bag:
I'm featuring the Brook Satchel in this post.. which I like to call, "The bloggers BFF".
This bag basically opts as the cutest camera bag..
That also holds all you other must have while shooting items..
Here's what's in mine:



Handful of YSL lipsticks (You never know when you'll need a color switch!)
Holga Camera and of course, extra film
My wallet
SLR film camera
iPhone and studded Gypsy Warrior case
Photobooth and polaroids of my boyfriend and I (yes, I'm lame.. I know.)






Outfit layout:






What I'm Wearing:
Black and gold crop top and velvet skirt thrifted from Beacons Closet
Black sheer gypsy throw thrifted from Salvation army
Bag gifted from Remi and Emmy
Bangles collected from various flea markets.



Thrifter tip:
Want a gypsy inspired throw like this?
Try looking in the sleepwear section at your local thrift store.
I'm pretty sure this is actually a sheer bathrobe I'm wearing...
Which I'm totally okay with- ahah!

  1. Oh what a great giveaway. I think I would style this bag with my forever21 velvet black tights, a black bra and a black and cream stripe shirt. I would also add this necklace I have that is gold and black chains with some neon yellow chains. :] This bag would go perfectly with my outfit. I would also pair all this with my black open-toed lita boot.

    Hope I win! Thanks a heap.

  4. What a beautiful bag! I'd wear it with my vintage green mini dress with black patterned tights and my black Stuart Weitzman knee high boots! I also just got this bracelet and it'll compliment the bag and my outfit perfectly!

  5. Nicole,

    Your style is unlike anything else on the web, and makes me green with envy! Lucky for me, I love wearing green!

    If I were lucky enough to covet the Remi & Emmy bag, I would style it with my red cropped top under a white lace tank. My acid washed skinnies would come down to my thrifted black Louboutin look-alikes. I would top this outfit off with huge, jet-black shades, and gold bangles to match my gold phone case! :] And don't forget the Polaroid cam!

    Check out the Polyvore set I made at the link below for a better picture of this outfit. Hope you like it! :)

  6. I'm such a sucker for black bags. I'd style with my vintage cut-up Ramones tank, an oversized & unbuttoned flannel, black leather pants and my red velvet Doc Martens. For accessories I'd pair it with my black patent Marc Jacobs watch and a statement panther ring.

    Such an awesome giveaway :-)

  8. I love this! I have a lomo camera as well so that would be convenient to carry around to fit all my photography things and my everyday essentials!
    I would pair this bag with my black and white striped relaxed top with rolled up sleeves over my favorite wine/burgundy pants and black Doc Martens. Simple simple simple. :)

  9. I just bought a hooded Alexander Wang onesy that this bag would look absolutely smashing with, BUT let's be honest, a bag that classic would go with anything and everything. I'd pack it full of nerdy notebooks, my camera and other essentials.

  10. This is a really nice bag - the details, size + quality are fantastic. You can never have too many black bags! I would definitely pair this with my Hello Cavities Ariel Inspired Graphic Tee (http://www.etsy.com/shop/hellocavities), Indigo 7 for All Mankind Gwenevere's, + my Vintage Black Frye Veronica Slouch boots. I'd accessorize with my yellow puffy vinyl Hello Cavities bow, my MerCurios glow in the dark mood ring, and Burt's Bee's Red Dahlia tinted lip balm.

    Starting tomorrow, I am actually running a giveaway from Hello Cavities - you should check it out!

  12. i liked both pages! i love how your style is extremely unique<3 A black bag is always my favorite, black is classic and it never goes out of style, almost all of the bags I own are black. I would style this bag with my red high waist zipper leggings and a black cut up Guns N Roses tank top with a black bandeau top underneath. Then I would wear a light wash denim jacket over the shirt and my favorite white high top converse to match. For accessories, I'd pair my black feather earrings with my lightning bolt necklace that I've had for 6 years (bought it for only a $1.99!! SCORE!!), and a silver and charcoal rhinestone snake ring on one hand and a 3 finger rhinestone ring on the other. To finish off the look I'd add my favorite gold and charcoal chain and beaded bracelet.

  14. What an amazing bag! I would LOVE to add this to my bag collection.

    When I saw this bag, I already knew exactly what pieces I would wear it with...
    I would pair it with a sheer black/grey floral maxi skirt from Silence and Noise (with footless tights), maroon form fitting crop top from American Apparel, vintage black velvet blazer, and these adorable black Jeffrey Campbell peep-toe oxford sling backs. I would keep my jewelry silver and maroon lips to match the shirt.

    This bag is so universal though. I can dress up, down, girlie, edgy, etc.
    It's the perfect bag for every occasion!

  15. I love this bag! It's such an easy accessory that I can play it up in so many ways. It looks like it can hold a lot which is perfect for a girl like me since I carry a LOT of things in my purse.. Make up, make up brushes, make up cleaner, my wallet, my disposable camera, my iPad, Ray Ban Aviators, beanies, otc drugs for allergies, headaches, stomach pains, hair serum, leave-on conditioner, nail polish remover.. Let's just say, I'm prepared for any situation!
    & plus since it's black, I can easily dress it up or down. I can throw on my short sleeveless leopard dress with my motorcycle jacket with this bag with my black leather lace up wedges & still look dressy. Another way I can dress it up is if I wear my oversized blazer with my striped black & white (Beetlejuice inspired!) sweater dress & wear my knee highs with wedges with this R&E bag. Or I can dress down with my combat boots, black skinny jeans with paint on them (they're from Diesel called the Grupee.. SO comfortable & badass!) with my old school sleeveless Harley Davidson tee & my white & black leopard cardigan from Evil Twin, again with R&E bag. Or another I can dress it down, is wearing my with charcoal dolman sweater, high waisted shorts, ripped tights, with my UNIF black or leopard Hell Raiser shoes, throw on some studded accessories.. Do a half braid on half of my head so it looks like it looks like I have a shaved head (Charlotte Ronson inspired!) with a bunch of studded bracelets and maybe even my Marc Jacobs skull necklace, along with the R&E bag. As you can tell, I'm kind of rock & roll with a girly edge since I do beachy waves with my long hair, or wear my pink lipstick. The outfits are endless with my style.

  16. That bag is wonderful!!
    also , your bag contents section is amazing, i love your studded iphone case-did you do it yourself?? i also love that you keep Polaroids and photobooth pics in their as well, soo cute, i always have some with me :)

    as for the bag, i have a new "mullet hem" chiffon skirt ive been dying to wear which i think it would add to the look, as well as a sleeveless white lace blouse i favour alot , also accessorized with this new necklace i bought - big, pastel coloured geometric metal shapes on a short gold chain, amazing :)

    it definitely would suit my more grungy looks or a well done polished look

    I cant believe youre giving a bag like that away!! anyone who gets it is luckyy!!

  19. This bag is to die for!
    I would style this with my light brown leather high waisted shorts, my black cashmere sweater with a white collar peeping out, leopard print Steve Madden loafers, black and gold geometric nails, and my black and gold studded leather bracelet. My hair (cause hair is always an important style factor) would be slicked back into a teased ponytail. I'd complete the look with ruby red lips and a cat eye!

  22. love this outfit and the bag so much! i would die for it!
    i'd start by adding a black/light pink/army green scarf tied in a bow on one of the ends, then i'd add on my black sheer dress, my "live free" crop top from jac vanek, a thrifted jean jacket, black army boots, my hair tied up, some red lipstick, and a slight black cat eye!

  23. Obviously love the bag, its gorgeous. I would wear it with a pair of black studded SM loafers, green AA riding pants, a long sleeve black tee and a faux fur vest. Then add a black watch, a few chunky bracelets and long gold necklace.

    ReplyDelete
  24. LOVE the bag. New white lace up booties + AA green button up sheer blouse + Zara black riding leggings.

  25. first off, wish i had an iPHONE just to have that case!!!!!!

    Being a boy fashionista, I would pair the bag with my black stone washed drop crotch harem pants, a cowl neck poncho underneath a thick black leather jacket and throw in some crucifix necklaces for good measure. I would wear my 15 eyelet doc martens with black ribbons instead of laces. Hell, I would even throw on some JC Lita's for the day if i could find my size!! ;) and its not lame to carry those photos with you... I have an envelope in my notebook filled with special photos i can look at when i am having a crumby day!

    I carry a lot everywhere i go, and am in need of a new black that combines function with style. I carry my phone, my comme de garcons wallet, a notebook and some pens (because i jot down the inspiration i find EVERYWHERE), my current read, my hello kitty makeup bag (filled with bobby pins, an eyelash curler, hello kitty compact mirror, chapstick, moisturizer, and my paul mitchell hair paste) and last but not least, my canon px1500 camera that I would use to photograph the outfit and post it!!

  27. I love the color black. It's so classic and adaptable. I would wear a white v-neck graphic tee, a animal printed scarf, brown low rise jeans with a skinny brown belt and a sneaker. oh! a graphic diamond ring is needed too. I like it simple and comfortable. <3
