The Senreve Cadence Crossbody Bag Review + Styling

The Cadence is Senreve’s newest style and my new love!

Named for a musical term, cadence is defined as: a rhythmic sequence or flow. It is a word that perfectly describes the beauty of my new bag, hitting all the right notes. The Senreve Cadence Crossbody Bag’s curves and angles are the epitome of modern Italian elegance. What sold me on the Cadence? The double flap closure, the Strati Buckle, and an exterior pocket for added style. The inside features thoughtful attention to detail and organization with three compartments, two slip pockets, a button pocket, and a key leash.

The Cadence strap (included) can even be worn around your waist as a belt! The unique design allows this bag to be compatible with all the Senreve straps and chains too!

Absolutely! I wash mine on a cold gentle cycle and tumble dry low. Although it doesn’t feel the same as it does in-store when you buy it, it’s still just as cozy two years later. They suggest avoiding fabric softeners.


If you’re a homebody (it’s 2020, we are ALL homebodies) or you love to curl up on the couch under a blanket every night, without any hesitation I think it’s worth it. I sleep with it every night if Benji doesn’t steal it from me!

When I think about how many days I’ve used it, the cost per wear is actually very low!

Away Luggage Review

I’ve shared a couple of quick Away luggage reviews on my Instagram stories over the past couple of months, but I finally had the time to give you the proper Away luggage review that you deserve and need.

It all started on September 9, 2020.

AWAY launched their first-ever online sale and I snagged an Away Bigger Carry-On: Aluminum Edition for 50% off! I was oh-so excited because I had a trip to Jackson Hole, Wyoming in the books and I was ready to take my shiny gold suitcase for a spin.

Flash forward to October 1, 2020. I extended my time in Jackson Hole (because Jackson Hole is amazing) but it was time to return home to San Francisco. There are very few direct flights from Jackson Hole to San Francisco, so I had to connect at O’Hare to get home. The flight from Jackson Hole to Chicago was short and sweet. I popped out of my seat in my new suede fringe jacket that I scored in Jackson Hole to find that my new Away Bigger Carry-On: Aluminum Edition had BUSTED open in the overhead bin like an overstuffed burrito! This is where the Away Luggage Review gets good…My personal belongings were popping out of the overhead bin and I started to sweat and immediately regret wearing the suede fringe jacket.

Now I want you to close your eyes and picture me walking through O’Hare wearing a suede fringe jacket and holding my BUSTED Away Bigger Carry-On: Aluminum Edition like a baby across one of the world’s largest airports. That’s right my friends I was cradling that bag between terminals and doing my best to not lose any of my personal belongings.

I finally made it to my new gate with enough time to slam a glass of sauvy b and write to Away about my BUSTED Away Bigger Carry-On: Aluminum Edition PROBLEMS.

I share my busted carry-on story with Away and this is what I get back ->

Hi there,

Thanks so much for getting in touch. For the past few weeks, we’ve been overwhelmed with gratitude by the response to our sale. Because of this, it will take up to 14 business days for us to get back to you. We know this isn’t fast enough and we’re doing everything we can to speed up the response time.

Needless to say the up to 14 business days wait for a response wasn’t going to work for me. I was FIRED up and sitting at a Maggiano’s drinking white wine out of a plastic cup. I needed a response and I needed it now…

So I went to the Twitter (something I usually try to avoid) and got the immediate response that I wanted. They were very apologetic and offered to send me a FREE shipping label to exchange the bag.

Trust and believe me when I tell you that I did NOT want to exchange the bag. The BUSTED dual locks on the side of the Away Bigger Carry-On: Aluminum Edition have a SERIOUS design flaw and this was not the bag for me. I am an avid traveler and this bag was made for the gram NOT the overhead bin! The team behind the Away stayed strong and only offered me an exchange. They did however make an exception and allowed me to exchange the bag at the San Francisco store due to the fact that I was only home for two days and then heading to Utah.

So I exchange the BUSTED Away Bigger Carry-On: Aluminum Edition for a new Away Bigger Carry-On: Aluminum Edition and head to Utah.

Did it BUST again?


I’ll save you the story (you get the picture by now).

I return home to San Francisco and after nearly a hundred DMs and emails, Away lets me keep the 2nd busted Away Bigger Carry-On: Aluminum Edition (why?) and decides to send me the Expandable Bigger Carry-On pictured below.

The Expandable Bigger Carry-On is fine, but honestly, nothing to write home about. I prefer my current replacement set that has never let me down and won’t bust open mid-flight. Away really let me down and I can honestly say that every time I look at my Away bag I flashback to me cradling that bag across O’Hare and I immediately get fired up!

Stay away, my friends. Stay far far away!

AWAY Luggage Review, The Expandable Carry-On, The Everywhere Bag

the one item from Away that you don’t need to stay away from is the

The Everywhere Bag

This water-resistant nylon travel bag is made to keep you organized. With thoughtful compartments, including a 15″ laptop pocket, a zippered waterproof umbrella pocket, and a roomy interior, it can fit anything from an extra pair of clothes to in-flight essentials. It’s designed with a trolley sleeve that perfectly secures to any suitcase and fits overhead or under the seat in front of you.

Why I love the Everywhere Bag ->
  • It is easy to clean! The water-resistant nylon looks good as new after one Clorox wipe.
  • THE ORGANIZATION SYSTEM – I am not an organized traveler, but this bag has seriously helped me get my shit together thanks to the six interior pockets and the padded laptop sleeve (which fits my MacBook Pro), the exterior pocket is perfect for quick phone access + your passport.
  • A trolley sleeve on a travel bag is a MUST. It secures the Everywhere Bag to any suitcase <- your bags will NEVER topple over again.
  • Meets the airline requirement as a personal item

The Big Spanx Bra Review Post

I know that bras aren’t big in 2020 now that we are all working from home, but we’ll be back to normal one day and when you are ready to wear a bra every day this post will be for you!

Beauty is in the eye of the boob-holder.

Shopping for bras can be tricky and every bra is not for everyone, but Spanx makes some fantastic bras. These bras are soft, comfortable, and made with unbelievable technology.

Bra-llelujah! Full Coverage Bra | 36c | $68

This is my absolute favorite everyday bra and at the top of my Spanx bra review post for a reason! It’s the kind of bra you can wear all day, come home, put your sweats on and leave on…because it’s just that comfortable.

Now, I’ve been wearing a bra for about twenty years now and I still prefer a front clasp closure. Who’s with me? This bra has a front clasp closure and SPANX Smart Stretch Straps -> a fancy way of saying nonadjustable straps. I know nonadjustable straps sound like a nightmare to most, but TRUST ME when I say trust the technology. Everything about this bra works and it will leave you saying hallelujah for the Bra-llelujah!

Bra-llelujah! Unlined Bralette | Medium | $33.99

Slip into this bralette and never look back. This style that’s more bra than bralette has all the features you love. It’s comfy AF with just the right amount of support for lounging around the house and walking the dog. The concealed side sling gives the figure a more forward lift with no metal hardware or elastic.

Strapless bras suck! true or false

I felt this way about pretty much every strapless bra I’ve ever owned until I got my hands on the Up For Anything Strapless Bra. She’s a splurge, but she’s worth every penny (and you can use my discount code: katxspanx).

This details on the Up For Anything Strapless Bra are unbelievable:

  • Spanx SmartGrip™ technology and With Me® tape provide a smooth grip around the body. Stays put ALL DAY!
  • The Spanx patent-pending elastic-free design = no digging in
  • Memory foam cups mold to your body for a natural shape and personalized fit
  • Removable, convertible straps offer ultimate outfit versatility (but does anyone ever use those straps?)

Undie-Tectable Better Bandeau | Medium | $48

This bra was designed to show off and I am here for it! I like to style it under anything that has a very low neckline like my Free People, Just Because Onesie. This is an excellent option for all my ladies who are looking for a simple wireless bra too! One of my favorite benefits of this bra is its ability to provide the right amount of support without the wire and it has the Spanx undetectable technology that supports and smooths like no other!

Undie-Tectable Better Bandeau Details:

  • Stay-put strapless layering with lightly-lined cups
  • Side support for the best shape and profile

Workout To Waves Mesh Panel Sports Bra | medium | $58

I got this bra in the middle of my virtual half marathon training when I was in Lake Tahoe and initially thought that it would only be good for low-impact workouts and jumping in the lake for a post-workout swim.

Boy was I wrong! This bra was perfect for my daily runs and the fact that it doubles as a bikini top makes it a hard YES! Don’t worry about jumping in a pool with it on either, it is both chlorine and saltwater resistant. Snag the matching bikini bottoms too!

You’ve made it all the way to the end of my Spanx bra review post and I’m hoping that you are adding this sports bra to your cart. I’ve never heard of a sports bra/bikini top in one! Have you?

Workout To Waves Mesh Panel Sports Bra Details:

  • Slips on overhead
  • Medium impact for A & B cups, low-impact for C & D cups
  • Wire-free and lightly lined for comfort and containment
  • Dig-free straps with stay-put adjusters
  • Built-in cradle offers a natural look with a lifted profile and added support
  • Back-smoothing construction
  • Chlorine- and saltwater-resistant

Chloé Woody Sandals Review and How to Save Over $100

Chloé’s Woody sandals are casually stylish. The leather sole is crossed by three straps adorned with the classic Chloé logo.

I’ve had these sandals for about a year now and can 100% vouch for them. They add a luxe touch to every outfit and are easy to wear with pretty much anything thanks to their neutral colors.

Chloé Woody Sandals Sizing

Saks suggests that this style runs small and to order one size up ->

However, I ordered my true size 38/8 and did not have any issues. I would only suggest sizing up if you have a very wide foot since the top of the shoes are a stiff fabric and does not give or stretch.

My final Chloé woody sandals review is that you will wear these sandals all the time, but they will take some time to wear in. The fabric allows for an approachable price point for a designer shoe, but you WILL need to break them in!

In 1952, founder Gaby Aghion established Chloé as an alternative to couture, and to appeal to the aspirations and empowerment of women. The label is now led by Creative Director Natacha Ramsay-Levi, who furthers its signature aesthetic of cool, French-girl style.
