Been lusting after a bayswater for ages. But something holding me back, which other bags are classics which wont date....

id buy a cheap one from tkmaxx and then take the bag on a nice holiday with the rest.

Balenciaga all the way envy

The bench crew will turn up soon though telling you to donate it all to charity and use a Tesco bag.

Mulberry are fab. The packaging is simply gorgeous. If u can afford it go for it as u won't be disappointed. Online shop is excellent. I've even put their bags hung on our bedroom wall. Look very pretty. That's before u even get to the actual purchased item!!!

Otherwise I'd only buy from Gucci or Louis v personally having visited both in Italy. Those shops make an effort on u. Most really don't care if ur a normal person. And that's not fun. A purchase this big should make u feel special. Mulberry did for me!

Could never afford it myself, but I would love you to have it!

I'd have a carrier with 800 quid in, helpful I know grin

The price varies, by the way, depending on the fabric/leather. From £805 up to £1300.

No but they might tell her to get a kipling and an iPad mini wink

I think they all date, to be honest.
But I'd get an Alexa.

I like this Mark Jacobs too.

shock

grin at 'bench crew'

This Bottega Veneta is very me It depends on your style though.

This Miu miu is beautiful but maybe not for Winter.

No bag is worth £800, are you mad? Are they magic bags or something?

why why why? Its a bag ffs. You can get gorgeous leather well made pretty bags for a fraction of that.

Honestly. Give your money to the poor if youre that desperate to burn it

it really depends on your style - do you need to wear formal clothes for work for instance? Or do you mostly wear jeans? I think that would make a big difference...

It's tiny and impractical but I love it so.

I have a teenager so only need a bag for purse, phone, lipbalm and fags!

QF your name is awesome grin

£800 is a terrible waste of money on a bag.

I'd much rather have shoes grin

I really like some of those options, especially the Marc by Marc Jacobs. Thanks ladies (shamelessly making the most of other peoples' efforts).

£800? I'd spend £50 on the bag and spend the rest on lovely hand dyed wool and needles.

I'd assume any £800 bag would last well - but I've had £800 clothes that definitely didn't, so maybe not! I'm going to second Mulberry because their bags are extremely fabulous and mine have always withstood years & years of severe abuse. Like all the best leather good they even improve with age. (Well, as long as you clean them occasionally.)
