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.

my new summer investment

Raptorrethy Fri 17-May-13 21:28:05

I am in heaven clicking on all these links grin
A surprise each time smile

I love handbags (clearly). A handbag always looks the same even if you have a stone to lose and your hair is rubbish. It's like a completely faithful friend saddo

I have already posted upthread about my everyday bag but just popprd bag for a quick brag about my favourite bag which is this but in black, grey, brown and beige. Gorgeous and goes with anything.

Housewife, I love your bays tote <3

nowaistatall linking to P&M reminds me I have admired the Olivia from afar for's now out of stock.

Does anyone have the Olivia? Is it very narrow depth-wise?

Tipid..i have a vw bag too. V similar to you. Can we be bag twins

Either my Longchamp Arbre De Vie like this but in white

Or this my tan Storksak Sofia

MacaYoniAndCheese Fri 17-May-13 21:45:27

This in Ocean Blue. It's quite structured, smells like a saddlery and is big enough for my iPad and diary. I love it so much I got it in red, black and plum too <boring>.

DH bought me this for Christmas and the matching purse for my birthday - I love it.

Oh favourite subject wink

I'm currently alternating between


Or if I'm going somewhere without the kids I carry my Chanel 2.55... Well I'm in paris so it's rude not too wink

I also love my mulberry and tanner Krolle bags, currently all sat in dust bags and haven't seen the light of day in a while due to mostly carrying around the stork sac which is full of nappies, mini raisins and toy cars hmm

Cavort Fri 17-May-13 22:01:55

I alternate between my Chloe Parity in tan or my black Gucci Jackie depending on what I am wearing.

I am currently expecting DC1 and I am determined my lovely bags will not be replaced by a changing bag despite my friends telling me otherwise. grin

ChablisLover Fri 17-May-13 22:03:32

I am alternating between a blue version of the zara a like shopper from stylist pick and an anya hindmarch maxi satchel in red.

Also have a pauric Sweeney hobo bag in reserve

Have stored my winter handbag away - mulberry roxanne in purple. I love this bag.

Barbie1 Fri 17-May-13 22:22:26

cavort being the bag junkie that I am, I too was determined not to have a baby bag...

Until a bottle leaked all over the mulberry and a yogurt exploded in the Chloe shock thankfully they cleaned up ok.

Stork sac was the closest thing to not looking like a baby bag.

I still throw the baby bag under the pram and carry a nice bag blush.

I'm such a bag snob

Black oversized mulberry del rey.

Hulababy Fri 17-May-13 22:30:26

A mulberry messenger one in dark chocolate brown leather - like this:

MN is unreal. Handbag threads are the only ones that make me think MN and reality are completely removed from each other. I don't know a single person irl with a Mulberry handbag but every other person on here seems to have one!

My favourite was from the Hobbs sale and is a tan leather camera bag. It was £60.

But to be fair, Remus, you are in the S&B section where peeps tend to be interested in fashion bag obsessed grin

HousewifeFromHeaven Fri 17-May-13 22:46:05

remus I don't know anyone apart from myself who owns one either. Everyone thinks I'm crazy. That's why I love MN, I can share bag love without being made to feel I shouldn't spend so much.

ChablisLover Fri 17-May-13 22:56:11

Love handbags. S&b laies are a bad influence on me.

A colleague has a lv ( logo one) but my anya is going unnoticed. That's hey I love it - it's understated and not in your face.

ChablisLover Fri 17-May-13 22:56:47


Blooming IPhone ( or the 1/2 bottle of sauv Blanc!)

Camwombat Fri 17-May-13 22:57:28

I have this bag sadly mine has a puree stain on it where DS put an unfinished open one in it unnoticed, grump....

BeehavingBaby Fri 17-May-13 23:00:56

Teeny, so use a tote as well, but the lock makes me happy every time I use it smile

Corygal Fri 17-May-13 23:03:02

I was sitting here cackling at all the people rushing onthread to display their Mulberries & then I realised I was using mine today...

It is a properly vintage one - cross-body, tiny, none of the bells and whistles of the statement bags. I think it's older than me. Indestructible. Hang onto them, is all I can say, they never die.

TheOriginalSteamingNit Fri 17-May-13 23:06:08

You know the advert for VW Polos, with the tall woman? She has a slouchy brown bag in one bit which I love, and I want it.

Any ideas?

HousewifeFromHeaven Fri 17-May-13 23:08:00

What does everyone think of Louis Vuitton purse

I have a multicolore zippy coin that I've used for three years and still looks like new but I need a bigger one.

I like a nice bright purse so that I can see it!

Which other purses are similar can anyone recommend?
