I can only keep one. Which one?

(36 Posts)

Ordered a couple of bags and now torn between which to keep as I like them all, but only need one. (although am trying hard to think of reasons I need three new tan handbags grin)

JOULES

RADLEY

JOHN LEWIS

and this one that hasn't arrived yet
FOSSIL

Hm, I like the green JL one but I most prefer the fossil bag. I think the Joules one will sometimes clash (as would the green one I guess) and I think the Radley one is the least interesting.

I would keep the green JL one and try to keep the fossil one too.

Fossil although I have similar to teh joules one and like it a lot!

I like the Joules one and the Radley one best.

maudpringle Mon 11-Nov-13 13:39:27

I love the John Lewis one too

PrimalLass Mon 11-Nov-13 13:39:38

Joules or Fossil for me.

MrsWolowitz Mon 11-Nov-13 13:41:57

I love the Joules one.

The Fossil one is clever, but might be heavy. The JL one is OK. The first two are too gimmicky, in the wrong way.

Also I use a £70 JL black bag and it's lasting really well and is still lovely and soft.

DSIS had a Fossil bag for her 40th and three years later it still looks like new (which thinking about it makes my JL bag almost 4 years old).

Should add I don't, collect bags so my JL one is used everyday for everything.

the radley one I would take the charm off of, as I hate things like that. its the tan version of the john lewis one I have. I like the green but have nothing to go with it.

I like the joules one and the radley one.

I try not to collect bags, but have a weakness for that lovely new leather smell grin

Radley one with the dangly crap taken off.

dexter73 Mon 11-Nov-13 13:51:41

The Joules one would drive me bonkers with that blue buckle on the pocket!! I like the Radley without the charm.

CecyHall Mon 11-Nov-13 13:55:27

Radley for me. Which is weird as I never usually like Radley.

CecyHall Mon 11-Nov-13 13:56:37

I also agree with Dexter the blue buckle on the Joules made my teeth itch

I'm not a huge radley fan either, I have a Grosvenor and a few years old black tote, but neither has the dog on and aren't twee at all.

Joules I probably the least favourite, I have to admit to buying it because of the blue buckle and the webbing handle but now not so sure that it I as versatile as the others.

It's my Christmas present from the children. DP has put some money towards it, ds1 (16) and ds2 (11), but know how fussy I am so have told me to choose. My poor credit card groaning at the moment with all 4 on it, so have to be sensible and send some back.

Joules , I have pre ordered this and can't wait for it to arrive smile

JaxTellerIsAllMine Mon 11-Nov-13 14:07:46

I am not usually a Radley fan, but I like this bag. Also like the Fossil - the other two are not my fave.

SundaySimmons Mon 11-Nov-13 14:35:51

I don't like the joules one at all. It looks cheap and old fashioned.

The radley one I was surprised at, as it's quite nice and I'm not a fan of radley.

I like the John Lewis one but it could look cheap, a bit topshoppy.

The fossil one is really nice, I like that one best.

Snowbility Mon 11-Nov-13 15:54:21

Radley as long as the tag is removed.

eurochick Mon 11-Nov-13 16:26:05

The Fossil.

I don't like the mismatched buckle on the Joules. I can't stand Radley - the little dog makes me feel stabby. The JL one isn't bad, but I prefer the fossil.

Cocochops Mon 11-Nov-13 16:29:02

Fossil is my fave. Don't like the joules one sorry
