It's, fine really but not so special, I'm sure you could get nicer for the same money.

not that keen, whats your budget and preference...?

fraggle73 Thu 14-Jul-11 10:51:55

For some reason I would like a red bag, preferably leather! budget around £100.

LuckyMrsT Thu 14-Jul-11 10:52:39

Too zippy for my liking. Could you stretch to this instead?

WowOoo Thu 14-Jul-11 10:54:53

It's nice, but has too much zippage for me also.

Not so keen on that M&S one either.

TK Maxx seems to have red leather bags quite frequently. I've seen Osprey bags (classic design, not 'exciting' but a good bag) in red in there several times. Could be worth a look if you're near a shop.

Last post x with OP's re budget.

Red Radley on sale at Debenhams. Still over budget but not as much. I'm not a Radley fan myself but lots of people are.

Or this one for nearer your budget?

Agree that TK Maxx is worth a look.

nothingnatural Thu 14-Jul-11 12:24:51

I like it. And I like the zips too. <old punk>

I was just going to say, look at TK Maxx website. Lovely red leather Osprey bags, great reductions !

madammecholet Thu 14-Jul-11 17:37:57

ted baker again

corlan Thu 14-Jul-11 17:44:22

These are lovely and in budget. The colour is much redder in real life than it looks on the screen

fraggle73 Thu 14-Jul-11 20:29:13

i love the madison bag smile

madammecholet Thu 14-Jul-11 20:54:49

That was my fav too.....just enough detailing and the right tomato red imo..grin
