I have just started a new job and will be working out and about. I have a large Mulberry Antony messenger but it's actually deceptively small and I can't find things easily (too deep I think).
I don't want to spend anywhere near that sort of money, does anyone have any ideas? I need my hands free so cross body would be best. I need to carry - fairly chunky purse, 2 phones, keys, notebook and pen and possibly some A4 sheets of paper. Not too heavy and comfortable to wear.
This is my work bag and I totally recommend it. You can wear it on the shoulder or across the body. It holds loads and wears well. There is a bigger version called the Hester if the Juno isn't big enough.
Have a look on their website, they divide their range by size, with the largest being able to accommodate A4. I just love the colours, the leather is gorgeous and the quality is great. You can buy direct from their site or Sarenza also stock some of their styles.
Funnily enough I actually own a mini Pippa bag, I got it in the sale. I hadn't thought about the larger one.
I don't know, it seems like a tote style would be most practical for finding stuff but I wouldn't have my hands free.
Although I work outside often, maybe one large bag would be too heavy for carrying around. Maybe I could get a tote style for all my notes etc which I could possibly leave inside and a smaller cross body (which I have) for purse and phone.
Am loving that Mimiberry Juno bag but would be looking for something other than black or slate grey - dark tan/brown or navy??
Have gone totally against the grain this year and spent 29.99 on a non-leather Zara bag. Not leather but looks like it and has been much admired. Depends on your job. It's only work and it looks nice - I'm a poorly paid teacher so can get away with it!
