John Lewis but in the tan or grey.

The Joules one has far too much going on. Not at all stylish.

I don't like Radley in general but that one is OK - without the strange 'charm'.

The JL one is my favourite - in grey or tan - the tan does look a bit orange-y but it might not in RL.

Think the shape of the Fossil one is a bit clumsy.

Real life consensus is jl tan or radley with charms removed as well. Umm the radley is the most practical size and style but the jl one was because I want a anya hindmarch zip satchel but cant afford one!

Thanks

Word-for-word what eurochick said!

I like the JL one best of all. I like it best of all in that vibrant green!

Don't know if you travel on the tube etc but one of things I like about JL one over Radley is that you can wear it across body if you need to (as I would if, eg, carrying heavy shopping on tube).

Also Radley seems just a touch boring, but that might be my prejudice against the brand.

Agree with you on the Hindmarch zip one - I'm not usually drawn to bags much over £200 or so and hate those with obtrusive metalware (eg, Modalu and most Michael Kors) but do really covet one of those!

The fossil bag is lovely, the joules one looks a funny brown, and the radley one too boring, but ok with the dangly stuff off, I suppose.

I have a green bag like thatsmile it looks nice in the summer and i wear it with a white t shirt and skinnies, or white linen dress, and sparkly sandals.
They are much cheaper in the sale though.

I'm asking Santa for the Radley so if you've one going spare ......... grin

Fossil or JL in grey or green.

I'd go for the fossil one and then keep an eye on the JL and Radley one in sale. Bare in mind sales are only about 8 wks away and I would take a confident guess that both will go into the sale, the JL may even go down to 50% off.
