Autograph Leather Double Handle Hobo Bag

This is at the top of my budget for a quality everyday bag. I've only seen it online but am impressed by the reviews. Do you have any thoughts? Do any of you actually own it? Thanks so much.

Many thanks, HF!!

I think it comes with it. I have bought a number of dresses like it and they all come with the under dress

twinkly ????? think you got wrong thread

ggirl Sat 11-Jun-11 23:09:14

no idea what twinklypearls is going about but in the pic the leather looks hard
would have to see in rl

The bag is lovely. I have a bag very very similar.

doglover Sat 11-Jun-11 23:11:01

Love the comments, ladies!! TP, are you on the wine??!!!

twinklypearls Sat 11-Jun-11 23:11:03

yes sorry wrong thread, I thought I was posting about the dress.

I like the bag by the way, my only reservation is that I was shopping for handbags earlier in the year and did look in marks and thought the leather did not feel great. You can always take it back though. I think they only had cheaper bags in when I looked, so this one should be OK.

Let me know if it is nice, as I will buy one.

Chuckle, TP!! smile

I now can't find the other thread! They need to know what I think.

Gillybobs Sat 11-Jun-11 23:23:08

I have this bag in both colours blush

I adore it for day to day use, perfect size to carry lots of stuff but not so big I end up with a sore shoulder. Loads of compartments, great for being organised.

Its not the softest leather its true but all in all for the price (I bought them when they had a 20% off handbags promo on) I think they are fab everyday bags

doglover Sat 11-Jun-11 23:24:37

Thanks, GB. Maybe I'll have to brave the shops next week and have a look in rl! smile

It's sounding very promising.....................!! wink

Gillybobs Sat 11-Jun-11 23:38:04

DId you read the reviews online? All amazing, and they are right!

Although the tan is the most practical and year-round, I must say the off-white colour is stunning and I feel great using it.

doglover Sat 11-Jun-11 23:42:01

Yes, have read the reviews and they're uniformly amazing! I think that I'm pretty - well, completely - convinced, to be honest!!

madammecholet Sun 12-Jun-11 00:01:36

I didn't like it...I've had a feel instore and its the hardest/stiffest leather and the bag has a weird opening, it kind of parts in the middle and has a small main compartment, which I didn't like....not big enough for me..... was not impressed. sorry.....

doglover Sun 12-Jun-11 00:07:26

All views welcome! smile

doglover Sun 12-Jun-11 17:07:16

UP DATE!!! I've just bought the best bag EVER!! Totally blown my budgetblush but I'm so delighted! It feels so comfortable on my shoulder, beautifully soft leather and capacious. I'll try to do a link.............

That's nice, doglover.
Is it large enough for laptop/A4 binders? And do you think the leather would lose its shape with such hard use (as carrying a laptop)?

doglover Sun 12-Jun-11 17:23:41

I don't need it for that usage, Animula: I think that was another person or thread. I want a bag that I'll use everyday (I'm a casual dresser - Boden / White Stuff) and this is just perfect!! smile

That is one beautiful bag... <<jealous>>
