I am nosy grin and I'd love to know what handbag you are all using right now. Post a pic if you can. I'm after a new one and would like some inspiration!

My current one is this: www.bettyhemmings.com/wp-content/uploads/Longchamp-Planetes-Hobo-Bag-01.jpg

But mine is brown not black.

You will laugh but I have just bought this

My daughter and I were looking for clothes for her and I started looking st bags and yes, it's Paul's boutique but I have taken off the charm and the bag is really nice. I'm nearly fifty, hardly Paul's boutique target market!

White stuff collette - sorry teeny pic. I love it, the leather is thick and gorgeous, unlike most of theirs. However I've had to swap to a rucksack when out with the dc, as no longer using a buggy much to hang the bag on. So my bag is just for ladylike nights out and trips.

Faust i cant see your link. Which bag?

faustina Fri 17-May-13 19:19:24

Allthingspretty Fri 17-May-13 19:24:08

Purpleknickers Fri 17-May-13 19:30:05

I just carry it in the crook of my arm if I need two free hands ... Bit like a wag only I'm not posh totty sadly

faustina Fri 17-May-13 19:30:26

thank you allthings. They had a v good sale and I bought two for half price - I love them!

Raptorrethy Fri 17-May-13 19:36:39

Lovely lovely bags. I haven't seen yet that I don't like!

daisydoodoo I have already proclaimed myself a Cath Kidston lover in another thread. Which bag do you have? Is it the saddle bag or the double-zip one?

Gradually the radley link says 'item not found' unfortunately...

faustina I love Longchamp. I have the one I linked to in my OP, plus a Le Pliage rucksack. I had a gorgeous Le Pliage satchel which I gave to someone and have regretted ever since as Longchamp don't make them anymore sad

I'm using this one ATM in an attempt to feel summery.

faustina Fri 17-May-13 19:48:57

mulberry bayswater tote

Its great however a little structured. I prefer if I'm honest my daria hobo so will stick to that style in future I think. Mulberry have stopped selling the large daria which I have I've noticed so I guess that aes mine a vintage!

Oh i love a handbag thread!

I used Chloe Marcie in salmon pink today. Fab bag.smile

Raptorrethy Fri 17-May-13 21:04:28

I know faustina sad
I am terrible for getting rid of things rather than hanging onto them just in case! I wish Longchamp would reintroduce it...

Love the Peony & Moore one madame linked to...athough it would be completely impractical for the crap essential stuff I carry. Osprey - so elegant! - and the Chloe Marcie is gorgeous although I'm dull and would prefer antique brass metalwork rather than gold. But the shape is beautiful smile

I have one like this
www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mulberry-Rosie-Hobo-Mitzy-Handbag-/130908260580?pt=UK_Women_s_Handbags&hash=item1e7abd88e4

The buy it now price is ridiculous, mine was less than £100 from Bicester. I love it, light to carry and cheap (for Mulberry at least)

EuroShaggleton Fri 17-May-13 21:17:16

This is my work bag:
www.karenmillen.com/signature-leather-large-bowler/bags/karenmillen/fcp-product/491GQ01522

I love it - the three main pockets are great for organising everything, and they all zip up which is good for security on the tube.

Today I am using this Mulberry oversized alexa in oak. Lots of space but bag is still really light. Fine in the rain too which is nice for Mulberry oak.

Pics of the style here:
