On a mission….

I predict that 2010 will see my continued search for the perfect everyday handbag. I have a long list of requirements:

  • It must be a cross-body/messenger style
  • It must have at least one external pocket (for easy access to my travelcard)
  • It needs to be big enough to hold my purse, ‘phone, a large paperback, sunglasses, umbrella etc – but not so big that it’s cumbersome
  • It should be leather
  • I would like it to be a pretty colour (black and brown are too dull)
  • It can’t cost more than £150

Not much to ask, is it? Here are some that nearly fit the bill:

Not big enough (by Modalu, available at http://www.debenhams.com)

Too small, and too expensive (http://www.mulberry.com)

Perfect shape, but not leather (http://www.cathkidston.co.uk )

And here’s one that surely doesn’t fit any bill, other than “more money than sense”:

£4,320 (yes, you read that correctly), by Judith Leiber (who else?) from Net a Porter  http://www.net-a-porter.com/product/60919

  1. Thanks Diane, will definitely take a look. I don’t actually really *need* any more bags…….but they are my addiction!

    • I do like a satchel, am rather partial to the purple one but not sure about the accessibility of the front pocket. Told you I was picky 😉 But definitely a contender.
