Mariella in Aubergine from peony and Moore. It's my new favourite bag of the month. I have big norks and this is fine because its even bigger.

A black leather satchel from gap. I love it as it fits all the usual toddler paraphernalia but I am envy at some of your gorgeous bags.

Am alternating a small Cath Kidston cross-body bag (red) and a Boden metallic satchel, also cross-body. Has to be cross-body for the school run.

Both a few years old so no links. Alternating has at least made them last.

Same as Toughasoldboots Mariella in last years pink from Peony & Moore.... it's making me yearn for spring in this chilly foggy depressing day ;)

This crossbody for day to day toddler stuff, and this Celine job in tan for when I can do a shoulder bag.

I'm alternating between two at thd minute. Today is a mulberry holiday bayswater which is smaller than normal bayswater and is cross body. Tis dark blue

Yesterday was a cement coloured Marc Jacobs one which I think is called the classic. Love that one. Has long cross body or over shoulder strap plus shorter handles to use as tote

Rowallan do many cross body, leather bags - really nice.

Annianni Thu 10-Jan-13 11:53:00

I'm alternating between 3 bags at the moment, a red dvf drew bucket tote bag, a russell & bromley brown cross body bag and an ancient prada messenger bag.

The Lalla Habibi in delicious chocolate leather, a gift from DP when we were in Marrakech last week. He also gave me the Lalla purple clutch. So delighted with them and very grateful to my DP for his great taste and divine gifts!

Currently using this
Absolutely love it, plenty of room, gorgeous soft leather, adjustable strap, lots of pockets and it zips inside. They do other colours too.
