Large tan handbag... Again

(99 Posts)

I need something large (A4 notebook large), leather, shoulder, under £200 and tan, or at least partly tan.

ALL ideas gratefully received- have grown sick of trying to find one!

There's a few really nice ones on the tk maxx site at the moment.

HalleLouja Sat 26-Oct-13 09:27:36

I saw a nice one in Jigsaw the other day

HalleLouja Sat 26-Oct-13 09:28:01

Here is the Jigsaw one

Thanks mewkins- unfortunately the only ones I like on there at the moment are the fendi totes at an eye-watering £900 odd quid...

tethersend Sat 26-Oct-13 09:29:41

I like that Halle, but need something sturdier than a clutch I'm afraid- it's for work. Thanks though.

KatieScarlett2833 Sat 26-Oct-13 09:29:47

Massimo Dutti do some lovely ones.

tethersend Sat 26-Oct-13 09:36:12

Can't find anything I like there either, Katie... They all look a bit cheap this year.

CharlotteBronteSaurus Sat 26-Oct-13 09:42:06

this looked like it might take an A4 notebook when I saw it the other day.

i am saving for one of these though.

tethersend Sat 26-Oct-13 10:02:03

Thanks Charlotte, that's a a bit plain for me... God I'm a fussy bugger grin

I've got an awesome work bag from Fat Face. It's dark brown, has comfy shoulder handles, lined in cotton, plenty of pockets, and easily fits my a4 files.

I bought it a year ago but think they still have it.

White Stuff also good for this kind of thing.

KatieScarlett2833 Sat 26-Oct-13 10:06:26

Not fussy at all!
It took me 4 sodding months to find one for work exactly as you describe.

tethersend Sat 26-Oct-13 10:09:41

Where did you find it in the end, Katie?

I don't want to worry you, but I e been looking for this bag for years grin

tethersend Sat 26-Oct-13 10:10:12

Not keen on dark brown, thanks all the same Morris.

KatieScarlett2833 Sat 26-Oct-13 10:13:14

I looked online but couldn't find one. I specifically wanted one with naice soft leather, tan coloured and big enough for all my work tat.
I got one in the Massimo Dutti shop in Cartagena. In the sale, for 60 euros grin

CharlotteBronteSaurus Sat 26-Oct-13 10:15:11

i get the fussiness - it's why I'm saving for the small leather Longchamp (in the nice pinky purple). Am not a label lover, but have somehow managed to poo-pooh every other bag on the high street since my last bag broke a couple of months back.

Tan tote from River Island?

cardamomginger Sat 26-Oct-13 10:18:11

what happened to the one you got off Amazon that was like the Chloe one?

tethersend Sat 26-Oct-13 10:18:53

Got to be a shoulder bag, sorry Thesunrising.

tethersend Sat 26-Oct-13 10:21:09

It's still going!

I honestly thought I'd found THE bag- and it's good, sort of river island quality- but it's a dark tan and painted leather and, dammit, it's not a chloe.

I want something more expensive looking and vintagey I think...

cardamomginger Sat 26-Oct-13 10:43:41

grin I've been looking for a black one that ticks all my boxes for about as long. I share your pain!!

notnowImreading Sat 26-Oct-13 10:49:03

Do you like this one? It comes in black too.

tethersend Sat 26-Oct-13 11:03:34

Not keen, sorry- the leather looks a bit papery.

The only thing I've seen and liked is from shock radley shock- here

tethersend Sat 26-Oct-13 11:03:59

But too £££

KatieScarlett2833 Sat 26-Oct-13 11:09:51

The Radley one is gorgeous. I've uploaded a pic of my bargain bag on my profile.
