DH bought me this bag for my birthday. I actually really love it but a 'friend' (work colleague really) has informed me that Radley are totally naffola and that everyone will now think I have no taste.
I don't normally give a toss what other people think of what I like or if I have taste or not (I probably don't!) but I'm actually a little hurt because DH put a lot of thought into it and got me one he knew I'd like. Which I do. I don't really know why I'm bothered, I suppose I just feel that she's pissed on my chips a bit.
Radley bags are good quality, and I think anyone that says they Don't like an entire range of completely different products is talking rubbish anyway. You might it like the brand, which is fair enough, but when a brand like radle has such a huge range, how can people not find at leat one or two things that they do like, even if they would prefer it to be a different brand? It makes no sense.
I also think that people who stick to a brand for the right reasons and don't go off it just because it has had a few months of being the in thing and then gone slightly out if fashion, come across as a lot more confident and secure than people who would avoid a brand because of that.
I think the mumsnet Classic comeback is required here "excuse me, did you mean to be so rude?" I have many bags by many brands. The radley bags are fabulous quality and have never let me down. Whereas my mulberry is currently off being repaired because the zip failed after 18 months enjoy your lovely bag. Ignore your foolish work colleague.
