I'm torn between two bags.
Do I want this one?
Or do I want this one instead?

If I like those two, any suggestions on where else I might find something I like?

They're quite different - one being a shoulder/carry bag and one a cross body.

Cross body are more 'on trend' I think, but I find them annoying, so I'd go with the first.

The first because the flap the n the second would be annoying

I prefer cross body by far, but the shoulder bag comes with a long strap so I would consider it. I can't get along with shoulder bags, too fally-offy. I like to be hands free.

The cross body bag for sure. I prefer the raw leather and also I find cross body bags much more useful than a shoulder bag.

How large is the crossbody bag? Will the soft leather retain its shape if it's a largish bag?

I'd only consider the crossbody if it was small, personally. Not sure it would work as a larger bag. So if you're after larger bag I'd go with shoulder bag.

Wouldn't buy any of these, but if needed would go for crossbody bag

The first, it is GORGEOUS!

Glad you said that Minty - the first one is due to be delivered tomorrow. I am very very excited about this!

Agh, pictish you lucky sod, it is just so beautiful. What a great bag company, have spent a happy while browsing their website and ignoring the toddler who won't go to bed. Hope you love it when it arrives!

MintyChops Wed 16-Mar-16 21:46:52

Ok,indulging myself here, would you choose this or this? For me, yours will obviously be even better but I didn't want to be a complete Single White Female....

rosebiggs Wed 16-Mar-16 21:52:13

I want that black shopping bag. envy

I LOVE campomaggi, that first one had been on my wish list for ages, but sadly budget doesn't allow at the moment. Hope you love it and have lots of fun with it!!

It is without doubt the most expensive bag I have ever a long chalk. I had a wee unexpected windfall recently and decided to invest in a bag I knew I'd use for long years. That first one ticked my boxes...comes with a long strap so can be worn crossbody, has compartments to stop your belongings becoming stuff soup inside, a shorter handle for grabbing and hanging off chairs and is a decent size as are always handing me shit to carry...hats, toys etc.
Can't wait till it arrives. Ridiculously excited.

Only1scoop Thu 17-Mar-16 08:19:52

First one by far.

Only1scoop Thu 17-Mar-16 08:21:02

Is the first one the cross?

Love that.

Don't like the studs on shoulder.

pictish Thu 17-Mar-16 15:43:15

So it's here...and what can I say? The photos just don't do it justice. This is a beautiful bag. It took me weeks to choose a bag...weeks. I am stoked that I chose it...I made the right choice.

So Campomaggi - recommended.

pictish Thu 17-Mar-16 15:47:16

P.s I went for the first one...the shoulder bag with the circular studded design. The shoulder strap is well long enough to wear crossbody. The bag is a darker more burnished shade of leather from the photo and it's lovely.

Glamorousglitter Thu 17-Mar-16 21:05:23

Ahhhhhhh i m so glad it s as lovely in reality. I have a beautiful campomaggi small shoulder bag and I love it. Will definatly invest in a large one once the ship comes in! Enjoy your bag smilethanks
