so am thinking of getting one as been given some birthday cash. leather ones out of my price range so thinking the laminate/oilcloth type. So what i need to know is.. which shape and print never dates , and which looks good for everyday use? am willing to buy from ebay as less keen on the most recent prints on the website. Is orla still sought after? Feeling nervous as NEVER spent this much on a bag before... help!
hmm. have about £130 so ignes etc way too expensive.. thats why am thinking orla as more realistic £ for me and i love the stem print. dont mind it if does not hold its value ( although looking at ebay they seem to...). its more about wanting a practical bag that looks great and i could use alot .. thanks all!
I love OK bags, they are really practical, don't mind the rain and if you choose wisely they will go with lots in your wardrobe. I think the idea of a bag holding it's value is ridiculous, choose a beautiful bag that will give you pleasure every time you use it.
I'm not mad about the colours she's using this season but ebay usually has a good selection.
Actually there is a sample sale on in London this weekend here, which usually means there'll be lots on ebay in the next few weeks!
Go for it missymum, I have 3 OK bags (all oilcloth), my oldest one is about 5 years old (stem print) and it hasn't dated one bit. Don't quite see how they'll date when they're already in a retro style.
