Cheap, certainly... But nasty? Probably. I might be prepared to chance it, but wondered if anyone else was a sucker customer?

Oooooooo I LOVE that! It's such a nice size!

valiumredhead Mon 18-Feb-13 17:02:36

Actually you have been on S and B too long if you really think £70 for a bag is cheap wink

valiumredhead Mon 18-Feb-13 17:04:08

The reviews for the other bags by the same make are good.

Chloe Marcie copy by the looks of it.. Saw a chloe irl recently after hankering after it for ages and was disappointed as it was SOOOOOO heavy ;(

Bag looks great, just check the weight!

tethersend Mon 18-Feb-13 17:18:35

That's it, mme- I have coveted a marcie for so long I've lost sight of reality grin good to know it's the weight of a small child.

I thought seventy quid for a large leather bag wasn't bad... Is it true? Have I been here too long? grin

valiumredhead Mon 18-Feb-13 17:22:12

For a leather bag it's reasonable but not cheap grin

I am so tempted damn you OP!

tethersend Mon 18-Feb-13 19:25:16

Bugger it. I'm going to order it. Will report back when and if it arrives.

Hi tethers, yes I agree the Marcie is bloody heavy. I hadn't noticed it before but carried it around all day Friday for the first time and it was knackering.

tethersend Mon 18-Feb-13 20:17:18

Do you have one, novice?

Tell me it's shite. I keep thinking about selling a child to get one.

CheeseAndMushroomToastie Mon 18-Feb-13 20:19:44

Marking place for op to report the bag is shit and I definitely shouldn't get one. wink

noviceoftheday Mon 18-Feb-13 20:51:31

Hhmm. Aargh......, okay, it's a beautiful bag, BUT it is heavy. I have this one I saw a girl on the train today with a good copy, almost asked where it was from.

MissBeehivingUnderTheMistletoe Mon 18-Feb-13 20:55:20

Is this THE tan leather bag you were looking for a while ago tethers?

It's lovely smile

MrsAlexanderSkarsgard Mon 18-Feb-13 21:12:59

Oooh I really like that and it's a good size too . . .

Arisbottle Mon 18-Feb-13 21:16:31

I like it, let me know.

I am after a bag that his big enough to carry an iPad .

noviceoftheday Mon 18-Feb-13 21:18:14

I think you should get it Tethers. <enabler>grin if its too heavy you can always send it back!

KristinaM Mon 18-Feb-13 21:44:24

If this is indeed THE BAG that you have been lusting aftre for ages.....please get it and put us all out of our misery wink

Paribus Mon 18-Feb-13 22:34:27

The handle is different from Marcie though ;)

Toughasoldboots Mon 18-Feb-13 22:38:19

Get the real one, pointless otherwise.

HokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Mon 18-Feb-13 22:40:53

Bloody hell wish i hadn't clicked on that link

I like that bag.. but i want this one now

HokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Mon 18-Feb-13 22:41:28

The right link would help!

tethersend Mon 18-Feb-13 22:50:38

Right, have ordered it. Will report back as to whether it's indeed THE bag, or a steaming pile of (heavy) shit.

Toughasoldboots, sub us a grand and I'll happily get the real one wink

What kind of strap do you reckon it will come with? It shows it with two different ones in the pictures...

Toughasoldboots Mon 18-Feb-13 23:02:32

Just don't eat for a couple of months, no big deal.

tethersend Mon 18-Feb-13 23:13:35

Then I wouldn't be able to lift it grin
