...what would it be, and why?

Newbrummie Sat 21-Jan-17 20:33:13

I'd go on holiday

sonlypuppyfat Sat 21-Jan-17 20:35:11

I'd buy new carpets and a haven holiday grin

...I would think seriously about what I could usefully do with my disposable income..

talkingtoclarry Sat 21-Jan-17 20:44:05

personally I'd go down the preloved route, get two for the price of one! But then I'm tight and am incapable of really looking after expensive stuff.

But looking forward to the inevitable swarm of people saying they'd buy a shitty bit of plastic from Primarni and how could you even dream of spending more than a tenner on a bag....

I would get a very lovely briefcase for work

SloanePeterson Sat 21-Jan-17 20:47:54

I'd buy a bench wink but seriously, a Chloe Marcie hobo. God I lust after that bag. If you have the money then you spend it on what you damn well like, don't listen to the naysayers

I got a lovely laptop briefcase thing for £40 and I'd spend the rest on a holiday like most others on this thread.

If it was a little more, I'd get another Chanel wallet on a chain. I hate lugging loads of crap around and this forces me to streamline what I carry - also looks great worn casually or for a night out

Mulberry - have 2 but always room for another. Not sure what style but I have black and taupe so my next will be oxblood.

JustHereForThePooStories Sat 21-Jan-17 20:51:21

The Marcie Hobo is gorgeous. I love the Mulberry Bayswater but have heard the quality of Mulberry has dropped lately. Stunning bag though.

Not worried about the naysayers at all wink

RocketQueenP Sat 21-Jan-17 20:52:46

Any of these, second hand

A Chanel

A couple of mulberrys

Or a mulberry and a Balenciaga

Oh to have this dilemma 😩😩

Then maybe you should have a look at the holiday board, where people discuss holidays, and not the style and beauty board where people often discuss bags?

A Chloe paraty. Are you looking for work, weekends, evenings out?

bigkidsdidit Sat 21-Jan-17 20:55:23

Last year I was spending £1600 a month on childcare. I promised myself that when my youngest went to school I would spend one month's childcare on a bag before I start saving. A year in September...

Actually I might bump it up to two months and get a Chanel blush

trying29 Sat 21-Jan-17 20:56:19

Bottega Veneta -that'd be my dream

AlfaMummy Sat 21-Jan-17 20:56:36

Mulberry Camden. Perfect size for what I need to carry, slightly edgy but not too much, made well enough to last 10 years with the right care.

beeny Sat 21-Jan-17 20:57:40

You deserve Chanel !

titsbumfannythelot Sat 21-Jan-17 20:58:17

I like the mulberry range in oxblood.

Ideally I'd love a Chanel shoulder bag but it's going to be a while before I can get one of those x

Newbrummie Sat 21-Jan-17 21:00:17

I was paying £1600 a month in childcare at one point and the same again in rent. When it stopped I bought ..... an M&S sandwich

Dailymaildailyfail Sat 21-Jan-17 21:00:22

I wouldn't spend £1300 on a Mulbs. I'd go for a classic black Prada Saffiano OR I'd do a Chloe Faye- it's literally a dream bag. There are so many beautiful bags for that budget, I'd be like a kid in a candy store!

girlelephant Sat 21-Jan-17 21:01:47

Mulberry smile

IvorHughJarrs Sat 21-Jan-17 21:01:57

I have a Mulberry Alexa which I love and use everyday so would say a Mulberry. People have been claiming the quality has dropped for years but they are still good, solid workhorses of bags and I cannot see that my newer ones are inferior to my oldest

WelshMoth Sat 21-Jan-17 21:05:50

If go on Etsy and buy an enormous natural leather tote bag - timeless and bloody useful!

Then I'd bank the rest or pay some bills.

bigkidsdidit Sat 21-Jan-17 21:12:06

I'll put an m and s sandwich in my bag, Brummie smile
