Not my cup of tea, but it looks fairly roomy and well made. It seems a lot of money for a non leather bag though. For an extra tenner you could get this

Not my cup of tea either.

If you can afford it get the LV neverfull. It's flippin amazing and is literally never full. Been my change bag and every day bag for about 5 years now and still looks perfect

I think that's why I'm faltering... I like the grey but just not sure
I didn't even think if tk max. And liking the grey one.
I most definitely can't afford the Lv.. And I think I'd feel a bit funny having one even if I could. Don't u feel very conscious about how much it is worth!?

Ha. Now I'm watching eastenders checking out everyone's bags!! ;)

No I was any embarrassed at first (it was a present off my DH) we don't struggle but I'm certainly not loaded.

It does cost shitloads. But I have that and a small clutch bag for going out and rest have been passed on

I do get it.
I "splashed out" on a ted baker brown leather classic purse a few years ago now. (I think 4) I love it so well worth the investment.
I could probably put aside 50 a month if only to justify that I can afford it.... Thinking! ;)
The money's there and dh never knows what to get for birthday / Xmas. And ends up spending flipping loads on things just com he doesn't know what to get.
Maybe I'll suggest that... smile

get a longchamp le pliage - bloody great

Your bag in the OP is very nice. I don't think it is fair to respond to the original question by suggesting spending ten times the amount.

IntelligentPutty Thu 10-Mar-16 21:52:41

The long champ is very small..
Thanks putdownlaptop..
Appreciate the feedback...

The large longchamp is really roomy, I can fit my lunch, shoes, files, etc in it.

I prefer your original to all the suggested alternatives. They seem a bit dull and less fun by comparison. I've never got the le pliage obsession, there are a very easily copied nylon tote.

Get your original!

Ooooh the river island bag is the one I've been lusting after.
Also if you order online and spend a extra £3 you get 20 percent off if you use code stylew316 :-)
