Ok, have seen two lovely bags in Tk's and <cough> bought <cough> both of them blush on approval as it were.

I need help as I can't decide. I am leaning towards this tote (second down, in olive) which has this lining mmmmmm and is so sumptuous and soft, but does have a tiny little strap which annoys me.

The other one is here but in burgundy - again a buttery soft leather and was supposed to be £365 originally, so seemingly a better bag? I don't know about this stuff. I DO know I am fed up of my La Redoute canvas jobby as it is full of biscuit grin and looks unstylish.

Both are fairly bargainous considering but which to go for? TIA!

I like the first, how much did you pay? [nosey]

I much prefer the second one.

Oh dear! Girls you are not helping grin

Coco it was down to 99 from apparently 215.

The Abaco was 69 blush again WAY more than I have ever spent on a bag in my LIFE. I might take both back actually and solve it that way!

Ooooh I'll have to get to TK's!
I like them both.

Cornsilk I am quite scared of that place now...having discovered these two beauties hiding amongst the usual pvc stuff I am afraid of being found there every weekend crawling about under the rails blush

LOL- I need to get down there, I'm prepared to crawl about for a nice handbag! grin

The second one is lovely.

second one for me.

Thankyou smile

The first one (the FB) is v nice off but when you put it on, it is nice from the front (ie that fancy bit on the side seam) but from the side it looks a bit of an odd shape - the bottom kind of sags down (bit like mine ha ha) and due to the short strap it's a bit awkward.

So might keep the Abaco instead. Oh dear this is tricky. The FB even has its 'sleeper' (the cotton bag you get to store it in) which for me is v exciting <sad life> as usually in tkm they are missing. Apparently.

Oh and the lining on the second one is very plain, uninspiring black. Which is a shame..

hoxtonchick Sun 14-Jun-09 20:39:14

love the 1st lining. is it white though? i could never have a white bag... i saw a nice fb silver one in my tk today, but resisted. my best ever tk bag was a grey furla one.

Grey Furla sounds gorgeous smile

No no tis the olive colour as in first linky.

I'd not have bought a white bag grin
