Can anyone recommend a handbag that I can use for work - I've got an ipad (and everything else!) that I need to cart around and I've seen all these lovely ipad clutch bags but they just aren't practical for me. I've found this lovely Milly bag on peony and moore - has anyone else bought it? Is it big enough for ipad and stuff?
I've bought from them, I have the mn favourite Lucia! I saw this one at the weekend as they sent a mail out, it looks blooming gorgeous too, here it is Quality of the leather is great and good customer service too imo..
My new Milly just arrived today. I really love it. They say it will fit an Ipad and it looks like it will. I'd go stick my macbook in it to test but I've just sprayed it with leather protector and it's drying on a chair.
Have just ordered a Lucia in the new brown. Would like the Milly too but waiting to see if they're going to do it a bit later in a tan/oak, which I'd prefer, I think (don;t need to look corporate any more).
Has anyone tried the other new one, the Olivia, yet?
OK, the brown Lucia has arrived and I'm very pleased with it. A lovely bag.
Did hesitate long and hard about colour - possibles for my wardrobe were brown or navy. But I've got a bit of a strange, and probably irrational, 'block' about navy bags - remember them being the sort of thing that were 'sensible' in my mum's day, I think.
Anyway, the brown is a nice deep chocolate-y colour. If the Olivia colour is the same (as it looks to be online) that's another point in its favour. Looks good with my grey winter coat, my khaki parka - and my autumn/winter things in general.
As promised by the bag's fans, it's beautifully soft matte leather, yet not too floppy and unstructured. And nice long handles so they sit well on my shoulder.
Another fan here.
Only thing I'd say is that, if they'd have made it in a not-too-light grey it would have been totally perfect. Perhaps another season..
Used the Milly today and it is a really good size. Only complaint is that the carry handle is a bit stiff and slightly too wide. However I will wear it across the body 90% of the time so it shouldn't be too much of an issue. The long strap is also slightly stiff but I'm hoping it will loosen up over time.
DH never asks prices of things I pay for. I then don't ask the prices of the audio equipment he purchases.
I love this Milly bag, so stylish, but takes everything in it and doesn't lose it's shape. I admit it isn't my first purchase from Peony and Moore, I love the website and the customer service is great.
