I want to treat myself to a 'good' bag

Please help me find something. I want it to be tan so a good all year round colour with 2 long-ish shoulder straps. I really like the LK Bennett Annina but it looks like it's sold out in tan. That sort of size anyway, not too big.

Any ideas? Thanks.

I have this, long shoulder straps which are perfect and adjustable at the sides so you can make it bigger to fit all your crap in.


Love the LK bennet annina too....

I got the Annina in the Rose colour on Saturday - it's actually a lovely wearable colour. Have you tried ordering via House of Fraser? I don't know whether they have any online but I definitely saw the Annina in tan in their Belfast store on Saturday. Might be worth a call if you really like it!

Have you tried in store? I bought the gold Annina yesterday (oops) and they had the tan in store...

It is such a great bag, cannot recommend enough!

Damn I wish I had not clicked on this thread/that link. That bag is lovely and now I really want one!

Marking place, drooling gently....

The Lucia is absolutely gorgeous, and so practical too. I am desperate for one!!

Antidote Wed 08-Jun-11 14:32:48

This is my 'most wanted' at the moment

LOVE that purse antidote.....

Antidote Wed 08-Jun-11 14:41:29

It's very lovable.

I got my sister this one in green for christmas. I am wondering if I can persuade her to return the favour.

Dancergirl Wed 08-Jun-11 14:51:23

Didn't think to try their stores! Just phoned my local LK Bennett and they still have the Annina in all colours!

I also quite like this:

Well done Dancergirl!

Glad you found your bag Dancer Girl

Madammecholet please stop tantalising me with that bag, you posted it on another thread about a month ago...I WANT IT....but have so many handbags already and been spending like mad recently.

madammecholet Wed 08-Jun-11 18:29:27

whoneedssleepanyway sell all the others on ebay. Buy this one. It seriously rocks. grin

madammecholet - am now seriously considering the Lucia after all!

I may have asked you this before, but how big is it? I know the sizes are on the site but it's difficult to get an idea. I don't like really big bags, I prefer neat looking.

madammecholet Fri 10-Jun-11 12:55:05

Excellent dancer - its actually been posted on a few threads on here now..its not just me that likes it!

Re the size it fits underneath your shoulder nicely, it sits against my side rather than bunched up under my armpit iykwim. It is not a big bag, ie, you'd never get an A4 folder in it. You'd get an A5 diary and a makeup bag, maybe a rolled up cardi at a push. Also, as the sides are adjustable if you need to carry more you can. It is a neat, it doesn't collapse when you put it down which some bags do and I hate that, it keeps its shape. It also has a board on the bottom so you don't get any sagging...again a pet hate!

Hope that

That's really helpful madammecholet, and is the leather nice and soft?

I see they do free returns so I may just buy it and can try at home.....

madammecholet Fri 10-Jun-11 16:22:07

Its buttery soft dancergirl and thick too with a slightly grainy appearance, which I love. Free returns are great too so worth a try imo..

Megatron Fri 10-Jun-11 18:55:32

I think madammecholet is getting commission from Peony and Moore for the Lucia bag grin. She made me buy it, it arrived this morning and it's the most gorgeous bag I've even had. It's soft and just gorgeous. I now want the tan one too so I better start saving.

Dancergirl Fri 10-Jun-11 20:09:29

What colour did you get megatron?

madammecholet Fri 10-Jun-11 23:05:37

Was I right or was I right megatrongrin...tis my fav bag atm... I like the commission idea though, I could take it in discounts!! grin
