Ok I NEED a new handbag I currently have two contenters, neither is quite perfect so I need your help to decide between them/find the perfect bag.
Bag 1 is very near perfect but I would prefer a darker brown/tan and it doesn't have any closures on the straps, just the turnpost.
Bag2 Is a lovely colour and a fair bit cheaper but I'm not sure the closure is as secure and the shoulder strap isn't as long as I would like and it is stitched (not on a ring if you see what I mean) so hangs straight with the bag.
Please help me make up my mind, any other suggestions welcome, can go upto £150 for the most perfect bag in the world.
Ok I would like a brown leather satchel that is not too big, has a flap, isn't too fancy, has a long shoulder strap, maybe a be handle but that's not essential.
I like I said the fossil one is near perfect but the colour isn't quite right and I'd prefer a magnetic closure on the straps or something to stop them being loose. I love satchel type bags but having not really had any about for years now everything has to be the alexa like it's the only satchel in the world
Sadly not such luck, nearest store is either London or Bath, we're almost exactly between the two and no chance of visiting either in the near future (will be in London next Jan but that's a bit of a wait).
