I have an ancient Ollie and Nic dark blue velvet handbag/shoulder bag which I have literally used to bits
Birthday coming up - need new bag. But I seem to hate everything on the high street. Radley are not my cup of tea at all. I hate embossed leather and twiddly bits. John Lewis don't have anything that catches my eye at all.
It needs to be big enough to used for the odd nappy/wipes/toy car/sippy cup but still be a handbag, not a massive holdall. I'm not very trendy so not too cutting edge! And either dark or easy to clean as I'm a slatternly caah.
Do you want leather or something fabric? These guys do really lovely satin bags. These soft and squidgy but lovely colours and really well made. Just got a £5 coupon for them as well. It's SPARKLE in case you need it .
Take a look at Tabitha bags here. I have a stardust and love it. Beautiful leather and very roomy if you like to carry lots of stuff - I am assuming you are a mum, in which case this seems inevitable . I try and keep stuff in separate pouches inside so stuff doesn't get jumbled together. I think the price is good too, not £! like some...
Ok, this is how fussy I am - I like the shape and style of this one but I wouldn't buy it because I don't like the idea of having to bother lifting the flap to get at things when it's tucked under my arm!
