I love handbags. I buy quite a few but none of them really seem to be the right one so then I buy another one. I was wondering if anyone can help find a bag like this...
1. Must be able to have my hands free wearing it 2. Needs to zip across the top 3. I want one main compartment, not divided. 4. Maximum budget of £100 5. Need to be able to fit in an A5 notebook and/or paperback
I have a Kipling bag that I am using at the moment but it's got two sections so all I do is hunt around for things in it all the time
All suggestions, links and pictures gratefully received
Are you me?! No advice I'm afraid but I could've written your post word for word. I too keep buying bags in the hope of finding the perfect one, but it hasn't happened yet. Your list of requirements is identical to mine too. Hopefully someone will reply who can help with the search
sherlock I have just seen THISS* bag in Next when I was out browsing and it caught my eye as the sort of thing you (and I!) might be looking for. It was very roomy, with a long zip top so it opens up nice and wide. Didn't have anything A5 sized with me to check for certain if it'd fit but I think probably would.
I nearly bought it there and then but I personally find a wider strap more comfortable so it was very nearly perfect but not quite! I may go back and buy it anyway
It didn't look that snake-skin-y in real life. In fact it wasn't until I looked it up online to post the link that I realised it was snake skin effect. Hadn't thought of Fat Face ... might look there myself I really don't need any more bags
Kin and weekend at John Lewis often seem to fill this niche for me. I've just bought a Coach Turnlock hobo in their sale which is perfect for these needs but was £165. Worth keeping an eye on for further discounts?
