Needs to be roomy!

I'd prefer leather and like metallic, navy, tan or nude.

I'd consider a brighter colour for the right bag.

Just wondered if anyone has seen anything ncpice around?

what do people think of this?

Would the colour be a mistake?

Marc Jacobs Natasha? More colours should be available elsewhere...

When's the break? If you can wait a month or so, then you should be able to get something in the sales, if you make a wishlist now smile

Not keen on the colour of the Fossil.

The reviews on the fossil bag you linked say it marks really easily. I wouldn't be happy with that as its so expensive.

Those Owen Barry bags are lovely!

I have this:

Roomy, lovely leather and a nice shade of blue. I know it's technically a man bag but don't care!

Or this - tan and metallic! Might not be big enough thou ... (can get my iPad, wallet, umbrella, kindle and numerous other things in bag above!)

that coach bag in blue is gorgeous (even though i would NEVER spend that much on a handbag!!)

I have a Village England Beamish bag and love it. Loads of room and great quality leather.

A couple of ideas:

slouchy

metallic

catgirl I love the village England bag!

Do you find it heavy?

Do you think it'd be suitable as a crossbody city break bag or more a work bag?

Sorry no idea how to do links but White Stuff have nice sized cross body bags in soft leather in various colours, approx £50.

I have the Natasha bag too, love it!

Sorry, just realised you'd asked some questions. I don't find it as heavy as a lot of similar size leather bags - my back isn't great but I have no problems carrying it around all day. I bought the taupe one deliberately so it didn't look too much like a work bag, but if you went for the black it might look a bit formal.
