A tan bag but it must be a classic

I have £250 to spend and I must be able to wear it over my shoulder. I get fed up of hand held bags. Must be leather and not a bucket type bag as I go bonkers trying to find stuff in the bottom. I don't like the croc look. The bag has to go with everything so work suits to jeans and a shirt at the weekend.

It doesn't need to be huge but big enough for my life book, phone, make up, keys etc.

My research is only really bringing up Radley - not for me. Can you help if you have some time ?

I am not keen on the peony and moore lucia. I know lots of you are but I just don't love it when I look at it.

Tan bags are quite difficult as they can be too orangey or too dull like a khaki
brown. Try looking on Shopstyle site - put in tan leather handbags and you will see a complete range to click through to - - loads of choice and prices there.! Good hunting - - I like the P & M Lucia in camel tho' grin

Fossil do some really nice tan bags. I bought one for about £160 and it's lovely. They also have outlet shops where you can buy them cheaper.

Karen Millen do some great bags, also look at The Outnet website for heavily discounted designer bags. They are the same company as Net a Porter so very trustworthy. I'd link but I'm on my iPod sorry.

Also try Coccinelle and Furla.

I like Mimco bags, they are very well made with good quality leather

bag is this the sort of thing your looking for ? sadly off budget but might help style wise in search.

Of all those bags mentioned OP I really do think the Peony and Moore Lucia is the nicest by far, what is it you don't like about it exactly?

This LKBennett one is nice but £45 over budget...

this is beautiful - twenty quid over your budget but worth it!
