I am nosy grin and I'd love to know what handbag you are all using right now. Post a pic if you can. I'm after a new one and would like some inspiration!

My current one is this:

But mine is brown not black.

A Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Groovee in black leather. Hate the name, adore the bag.

On mobile app so I can't make proper links sad but here:

Purple i am very jealous of your patent mabel.

I still regret not getting a pink patent mabel a few years ago

Purpleknickers Fri 17-May-13 16:04:00

smile thanks allthingspretty you could try e bay for a pink one maybe? I know Mulberry trawl e bay and eradicate the fakes

A fudge Mulberry Evelina. That link is probably fake btw, but couldn't find a genuine linky!

DP chose it for me when he was in Cheshire Oaks last month. I luff him.

Mulberry Antony in Goat skinconfused

It's a golden colour in reality, very nice. Bought it a few years back half price, cost about £180, can't believe the price now. I would like one in midnight blue but I can't see me affording it now.

I was thinking about it for last Christmas then prices went up again. I bought a camera insteadgrin

This one

How wonderful to check back on one's thread and find all these beauties ((salivates)). I am seriously envy of the Mulberries...I had a chocolate congo a while ago but I sold it as the rolled straps never stayed on my shoulder and it drove me mad.

TheCraigDealer I can't open the link sad

The purple Mabel is very do you cope with no shoulder strap, Purpleknickers? Two DCs and an effervescent dog means I need to be hands free...

More more more please grin

Raptorrethy Fri 17-May-13 17:22:48

Slug - same question to you! Lovely bag (I love anything flowery - my bag is vvv dull) but needs a constant hand on it...

Raptorrethy Fri 17-May-13 17:24:46

Mulberry Anthony - so classic and PRACTICAL too! How much does it hold, Doyouthink? Does it have any pockets/compartments? fartoolazytoresearchitmyself

ShirleySharpeyes Fri 17-May-13 17:27:29

I love my bag, its a a Mimi Berry peggy, except mine is red, and made from the most beautiful leather which is looking even better now it's getting older.

KatoPotato Fri 17-May-13 17:31:00

this is my bag today

timidviper Fri 17-May-13 17:33:52

Mine is also a Mulberry, it's a camera bag which is small yet deep from front to back so you can fit loads in. This link is prob fake though as I can't find a real one,

Arcadia Fri 17-May-13 17:41:54
After much deliberation bought this few months ago, loved it to begin with but excitement has now worn off. Don't think I will spend that much on a bag again, first time I'd really bought a 'grown up' bag!

Arcadia Fri 17-May-13 17:42:16

In tan not black

AlwaysSleepingBeauty Fri 17-May-13 17:55:21

There are some very chic handbags around!

Mine rather pales in comparison to some of these designer bags- but I'm carrying a vintage black leather bag with a metal purse style clasp. It's from the 1950s but not any particular label as far as I know.

faustina Fri 17-May-13 18:11:38

this one except in black. Unlike the picture, it's all squishy and slouchy - it doesn't stand up straight at all. I LOVE it. Also it's indestructible!

daisydoodoo Fri 17-May-13 18:19:00

My current one is a mn pet hate. Across the body messenger navy blue polka cathkidston. TThe children brought it for me for Christmas.

I do have a cupboard and a storage box full of beautiful handbags as well and often swap about but current is as above.

Mbear Fri 17-May-13 18:28:06

This is mine - execept in a deep reddy purply colour. Courtesy of my dad who decided one day that his credit card was looking a little neglected grin

Mbear Fri 17-May-13 18:28:43

Bloody linky

GraduallyGoingInsane Fri 17-May-13 18:31:04

This is my most used bag (with the dog removed) - I love it! So very practical for day to day work use.
