Please help to find me a bag!

I can't find what I'm looking for anywhere and wondered if MN could help.

I need a bag. It must be cross body, real leather in brown or tan, must not rely on being fastened with a buckle although I certainly don't mind buckle detailing.

It must be of a reasonable size and the metal finishing must not be blingy. The inner should have compartments to stop my stuff sliding out and around the bag.

I like a vintage bohemian look. Absolute top budget £300. Current bag is a saddle bag by Scaramanga and looks the biz, but is annoying as has a buckle fastening and single compartment meaning everything falls out when the bag tips over.

I have looked everywhere I can think of but no joy. Any ideas? Thanks.

www.plumo.com/products/Veep-bag.html - too large and / or distressed?

Thanks for the suggestions. There's one on the Campomaggi site I rather like. Keep them coming. x

I've always had a brown/tan/chestnut leather cross body bag. They tend to go with anything at all. I don't have loads of bags, I stick to one and use it for everything. I get very attached to the right bag.

This is my current bag. the single compartment means it's chaos in there, and buckle fastening...way too fiddly.

Looks gorge though. Very much up my street looks wise.

I bought a campomaggi bag a while ago.
The leather is beautiful and I absolutely love it.
Also there aren't masses of them about over here.
