Karen Millen's bags are nice. A big waggy sometimes, but often v nice.

Heathcliffscathy Sun 23-Aug-09 21:32:45

Fossil handbags and watches are gorgeous.

BobtheWoodmouse Sun 23-Aug-09 21:35:03

Do you have a Russell & Bromley shoe store near you?

Their bags are pretty good sometimes.

Anya Hindmarch sale?

I like this Barbour bag.

Also I have a chocolate brown leather bag by Bolla. Large for every day use.

DrNortherner Sun 23-Aug-09 21:45:37

Luella bags are fabbo if you have an outlet store near you?

Do you want an evening bag or an everyday one?

Have you tried this website
They have fashion bags that are reasonably priced and also bags from Blondie mania and Kesslord - french company. All bags look fabby

T K Maxx are selling bags online now. Always worth a rummage through.

FlightHattendant Sun 23-Aug-09 22:09:01

TKMaxx sometimes have good a nice DiBiasio there a while back. But tis luck really.

FlightHattendant Sun 23-Aug-09 22:09:43

Ooh Fimbo, spooky!!! I had this thread open for ages before posting on it, so your post wasn't there. hmm weirdy music about now

Fimbo Sun 23-Aug-09 22:25:22

<<hums twilight music>> grin

Fimbo Sun 23-Aug-09 22:26:21

I got my Frye boots in there last year for £70, they are £180 everywhere else.

FlightHattendant Mon 24-Aug-09 08:02:19

shock Oh don't tell me that. I can't LET myself into the shoe department, the bags bit is hard enough. Mind you they never have 8s in ours. <Big feet blessing> grin

Heathcliffscathy Mon 24-Aug-09 18:54:09

so it's between a tabitha quinny in red and a kessler blue one do you think i can use the blue one as an over shoulder bag?

that's so far...

Fimbo Tue 25-Aug-09 09:57:17

Sorry but the blue one is minging and no you couldn't use it as an over the shoulder bag.

Heathcliffscathy Tue 25-Aug-09 10:32:38

what's minging about it!!! shock

Fimbo Tue 25-Aug-09 10:35:21

I don't like the metal work at the sides, nor the colour. It doesn't look the money, it looks like something cheap from a market stall <<sorry but you did ask why!>>

Fimbo Tue 25-Aug-09 10:36:46

Not keen on the circly things on the Tabitha one either, but it is 100% better than the blue and looks the part.

Heathcliffscathy Tue 25-Aug-09 10:37:45

but you LIKE that barbour bag....

Fimbo Tue 25-Aug-09 10:38:19

The Barbour is fantastic.

LaurieFairyCake Tue 25-Aug-09 10:40:24

The ones on red direct are lovely. I got the Lloyd Baker Hobo bag for £35.00 with discount last week. It's all leather and is a nice big bag and for a change fits neatly on the shoulder - I am so sick of bags that fall off the shoulder.

They do it in purple and tan too. Quite fancy some of the other, more expensive bags on there too.

Fimbo Tue 25-Aug-09 10:42:33

Oh yum Laurie, that is a nice bag. The green is lovely. <<wants one>>

GossipMonger Tue 25-Aug-09 10:42:50

The Barbour is lovely.

the red one is OK

The blue one is vile and looks like it came from Dorothy Perkins!

If I was spending £150 on a bag I would want it to look like I had spent £150 on a bag!!
