Hello Ladies, I'm turning 40 this year and think it's high time I treated myself to a lovely bag that will last and make me feel proud. This has been a long search.... Criteria are: -not black -a single handle long enough to go over shoulder (with additional detachable cross-body strap) -leather -external pocket -roomy but not absolutely massive (I want to carry a SLR camera in there with purse, brolley etc) -under £150
One I like is the marc jacobs but it's too expensive and black and maybe a little small.
Any ideas of other brands I might try? Thanks so much!
My boyfriend got me (at my request- he's not that good) this Grey&gclid=CPC52aTL2MMCFUWWtAodYTUAdA bag from whistles for Christmas. I got Oxblood which they don't have any more, but they still have black, navy and dark grey on stock. It's FAB, pretty much exactly what I was looking for- hobo-y but still smart enough for work, little pockets and a shoulder strap that converts to a cross body. And the inside is beige which makes finding shit in my jam packed handbag easier.
Great! Going to check Peony& Moore. I hadn't thought about Whistles, French Connection or Massimo Duti. Thanks all! Why are they so expensive though, these leather bags? Is there a massive margin on them?
Prima I know what you mean. I think if it's not too big and with internal pockets for keys, pen, make up etc I'll be ok. I have one from here which is a good shape but it's leatherette and has a few nicks in it so getting scruffy.
