What do we think of this bag?

This fella

I usually go for something a bit more structured (think satchels) but lately I've been hankering after something a bit smooshier. I've had bags from Blondie Mania/Grandala before and the leather is just beautiful. I'm thinking about this in chocolate or black, but does it look a bit old fashioned do you think? I'm a bit useless at this sort of thing so I bow down to the s&b ladies' superior knowledge smile

TIA!

I'm nearly fifty and I wouldn't carry it.

It's not that it's horrible its just what I would call a granny bag! Sorry!

I'll have a look for similar.

It looks really cheap to me. I'd expect it to be from a supermarket or something.

It's too old looking for me and really not worth that.
Not hideous if it was a tenner in Asda though.

I think it's gorgeous!

I don't get the 'grannyish' thing as a put down. Do you mean dowdy or frumpy maybe tate? I know a lot of fashionable women who also have grandchildren.

Anyway, I'm 32 fwiw and I love it.

OK, maybe grannyish is wrong. Not youthful?

I prefer this but its more money

This is nicer in my opinion

I really like that one and I'm not a Michael Kors fan usually!

Looks cheaper than it is. Don't buy.

I bought this earlier

What do you think of it? It's the most I've ever spent on a bag, and I really like simple, low key designs. I'm hoping it won't date and I can use it for many years to come. I love it, I bought the grey one.

LadyPriggsbottom Fri 05-Feb-16 21:21:15

That Michael Kors one is lovely too tate, though I think I prefer the slumpiness of the one in the OP myself.

Just an idea, do you think a vintage one would work OP? Kinder to animals, environment etc, plus I think it would be slumpier if already worn out a bit. I love buying second hand though so am probably a bit biased!

OwlCurrency Fri 05-Feb-16 21:22:09

I like it a lot.

RedOnHerHedd Fri 05-Feb-16 21:27:07

OP I love it, I like it better than the alternatives suggested. I'm 34.

SuperFlyHigh Fri 05-Feb-16 21:31:29

Fuck no. For that money you could get a far nicer shape.

SuperFlyHigh Fri 05-Feb-16 21:33:13

That Kara net a porter one is really nice, perfect for someone like me who doesn't like ostentatious labels and metalware.

LadyPriggsbottom Fri 05-Feb-16 21:37:17

The only slight downside IMHO to the one in the OP might be the brass studs which I'm not 100% sure about. Would need to see in person really.
