Slouchy bag

(23 Posts)

I'm confined to Internet shopping at the moment and am in search of a bag.

I'd like it to be the right balance between structured and slouchy.
Made of leather.
In a brown/tan/cream/beige/burgundy colour
With straps long enough to go over my shoulder, but also a longer strap so that I could wear it across body style.

I found one in tkmaxx, pretty sure it was this one but for less than half the RRP. Went away to think about it and when I went back someone else had nabbed it.confused

Any ideas or recommendations please?

Anyone? Give me some bag-porn while I'm house-bound wink

Sorry two I'm not sure how I missed your message.
I love the bag, but really need a warmer colour unfortunately, otherwise would've snapped this up...

I was actually coming on to recommend Brampton! I have 2 and absolutely love them. I have a large grey one with a handle large enough to go over your shoulder and a tan slouch across the body one. The leather is gorgeous and they get even better when they're more worn. The smaller one brm-03 is surprisingly big, I can fit full make up bag, purse, phone, keys and a snack in. Also it's worth buying off Amazon as they sell through there but delivery is free, and the website used to charge about £10.

I bought this one in cream from the clearance bit in TKMaxx. It is 100% nicer in real life, and doesn't sit like that at all (is much more slouchy). Not sure the turquoise works so well with the tan though. The straps are perfect.

A non patchworky one.

Thanks all- but not sure about the turquoise bits or too much metal work/bling.

Sorry, didn't realise how fussy I was...

Any more suggestions?

That's my struggle this week too, I m not able to go shopping and been desperately trawling Internet for slouchy cross body bag with no luck.

I ve never seen so many tassels as bag shopping !

Itscurtainsforyou Fri 14-Aug-15 17:46:13

Ooh I'm tempted by the top shop one smile

I agree. Shame, as it works really nicely on the cream one (lovely for summer) and I am eyeing up the yellow.

I have the topshop one, it's really nice, plenty of room for all the stuff I need to carry but still looks good!

Itscurtainsforyou Fri 14-Aug-15 21:15:21

What about the strap Boston? Some of the reviews say it's a bit flimsy...

southeastastra Fri 14-Aug-15 21:17:24

i have that topshop one in black and grey (the grey one used once if you want to make an offer wink they're pretty nice bags. though the button on the inside popped off on mine

Does the top shop bag have a zip or popper fastener? I'm really looking for one with a zip if possible.

Bostonpj Sat 15-Aug-15 07:38:31

It has a zip.

Zorion Sat 15-Aug-15 10:42:07 this one? From the Boden eBay store?

Thanks Boston

Not sure about the Boden one, the straps look a bit thin/flimsy.
