I've found my perfect bag. At last.

Lust

Now I just need to find a spare grand.

Any ideas?

Answers on a postcard. Or just type them in the box down there. Might be quicker.

eBay LOADS of old clothes/bags/shoes? Car boot? Do babysitting? Save any birthday/Christmas money?

I bet you could do it and get it in time for Christmas smile

Hate to buck a trend here but I really don't like it. Just looks a bit meh.

Sell your body?

You could get that money together by the end of the year no worries as chewy suggested, get selling!

But I am not a fan... that particular shade of tan look vey cheap IMO.

Break it down - £20 a week gets it for you by next Christmas - do a few small things such as dropping the coffee habit (if you have one), buy one less bottle of wine a week, stop buying fashion mags (added bonus of not getting distracted by anything else!), better phone contract?????

It weighs 4.3lbs! You had better start pumping iron to carry it!

Goodness it's awful!

Forgot to say make 1000 of something you can make for next to nothing and sell them at a fete.

I understand your pain. Would love one in khaki, seed or nut brown.

I think they are gorgeous bags.

novelsituation Sun 27-Jan-13 08:42:36

I prefer the medium size to the large. Unfortunately it's also ruinously expensive.

MrsCampbellBlack Sun 27-Jan-13 08:49:36

The medium in blue has been on my wish list for a year and still no bugger has taken the hint and bought it for me - I even put it on pinterest and said 'ideal gift' and still DH just ignores me.

Not sure i should post this blush but umm i just bought that bag. But in a different colour (which you prob wouldn't like!). Hasn't arrived yet as did it online so will arrive in a few days. I was actually looking for a balenciaga city but they're not doing it in colours I like this season and stumbled on the Marcie.

My lovely sister has that bag in red - it is gorgeous! She also got the matching purse for christmas. Agree about eBay - sold buggies and baby furniture and made close to 1000 plus 300 at an NCT sale recently.

MrsCampbellBlack Sun 27-Jan-13 10:11:50

Novice - which colour?

noviceoftheday Sun 27-Jan-13 10:30:14

MrsCampbellBlack, its the salmon one. www.matchesfashion.com/product/138215

The Balenciaga city I really want is the bright blue or green one but they don't appear to do those anymore. I am toying with the mango.

I tend to use colourful bags for work or going out (which is what this is for). I tend to use my brown bags casually.

PlumSykes Sun 27-Jan-13 10:40:05

Oh, it's lovely. One of my favourite bags at the moment.

MrsCampbellBlack Sun 27-Jan-13 11:18:32

Oh that's lovely novice - really lovely!

bigkidsdidit Sun 27-Jan-13 11:31:49

I love that salmon envy

You need 100 tenners Tethers. Do you have 100 small things to sell, or some old baby stuff you dot need any more?

novelsituation Sun 27-Jan-13 12:27:45

Beautiful bag novice.

Glossynotflossy Sun 27-Jan-13 13:11:41

I went to the harvey nics sale at christmas time and considered a chloe but i didnt like the leather.

Agree about ebaying etc.

joliejolie Sun 27-Jan-13 13:16:09

Balaclava, wire cutters...I mean how secure can the NAP warehouse really be??

I used to love Chloe bags and I do love the look of this one, I just don't feel like the quality matches the price. That's getting to be true of all designer bags nowadays.
