Leather preferably
No Fossil or Radley or Kipling please

For every day. Current one I have is a DKNY one from New York 12 years ago! Has lasted well!

I like simple ideas, clean lines etc. Would like a mulberry tessie but I'm being sensible so budget of about being £100, more if I absolutely love it

I just bought this, it's Lovely - nicer in the flesh, beautiful clean lines, and well within budget!

Only small but lovely

From one who thinks m&s is infact not dead....

Try fat face- I have a lovely one from there.

I have a modalu cross body in pale grey that I love

How big does it need to be? I'm getting the DKNY Chelsea Vintage cross body from DH for my birthday

Thanks for the replies. Is the DKNY bag a bit boxy? Need to get usual stuff in it- purse iPhone keys, usually a thomas train or two, lip gloss.

Will have a look at ones mentioned

Feels lovely, comes in brown and black

I have this Jigsaw bag in light grey, the leather is beautiful and buttery soft!

Chicinwellies Wed 01-Feb-17 23:13:30

That jigsaw bag is Gorgeous !!

Not helpful, but I thought a "cross body bag" would be something you might find an angry person in in a mortuary blush. I should stay away S&B threads...

Why not Fossil?

I have this and I loveit because it is slim and has clean lines. You forget you're wearing it. It's hand-tooled leather made in UK.

SumAndSubstance Thu 02-Feb-17 09:45:50

I treated myself to one of these recently and I really like it.

There's a sale on at the moment too...

DianaT1969 Thu 02-Feb-17 09:52:27

Take a look at COS too. They sometimes have good minimalist cross body.

I have a Mulberry Tessie in Oxblood, really love it-works with everything!

BusterTheBulldog Thu 02-Feb-17 10:35:24

Right, just gone back and read your op (I am idiot). Ignore my post.

(It's defo worth the money though, got mine in a 20% off John Lewis day)

MsUnderstanding Thu 02-Feb-17 12:26:56

White Stuff. I dislike thier clothes but thier leather bags are quite nice and simple.

Oblomov17 Thu 02-Feb-17 12:52:52

OHHHH ....... Op following with interest. I started my own thread last month to ask the same thing.

Good luck.

Have a look at mint velvet and all saints, they have some good bags.
I've just bought a fossil one and am returning it as it's just not as nice as I thought it would be.
Have ordered a fat Face one to try, I feel like I have been looking at Cross body bags for ages now!

I have a lovely grey (last season) Mint velvet one .. They have some gorgeous ones... and some in sale
