Found 22nd Jul 2011
HI There

My girlfriend comments every time we watch the hotel inspector that she could do with a bag like Alex Pollizzi's haha. So I thought I would try and find her one for her upcoming 30th b'day and our trip to Paris, please bare in mind that I am on a very tight budget, £20-£30 MAX as I have bought her loads already but if anyone has seen a nice Xtra-large bag in the sales approx the size of the one below (although I will consider anything quant) then please let me know!

Many thanks in advance!!!

Nono I don't think my fashion conscious lady would like the Mr.Men print haha, thanks anyway for taking tim to reply.

Choc that is a bit more like it although she does not really like Armani, or things with a brand name printed on them in large lettering, good shape and size though, thanks!

She likes quite quant things so it should either be a very simple leather bag or something quaint and flowering, girly!

Cheers again.

that's gorgeous!
its £33 here though, postage is free on orders over £35 so if you can find something for a couple of £ may be worth ordering direct?

I have a ollie and nic one, it's really nice, I like it because the bag actually came with a laundry bag, toiletry bag, and name tags. All that matched the bag.

Haven't seen them many places, mine was a gift, was really pleased with it.
if u decided on the henleys at debds - SHD1 is free delivery and thers a 10 % code PXLP. hope this helps xx

Thanks again for all the replies, OK, update on the bag search, as I said in original post she would like one like the Hotel Inspectors so I have decided to go back to looking for a similar one, here is a link to pic of her bag (see pic 2 of 2): http://www.channel5.com/shows/the-hotel-inspector/features/alex-reveals-all

so I have decided exactly the type of bag I want to get her, I bidded on one I thought was perfect on Ebay but was outbid at the last minute, here is that bag: cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/…dll?ViewItem&item=370530077440&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

So what I want is a Very Large Red leather (or fake leather) Weekend/Holdall bag up to £45 maximum please, preferably very chic looking, think Audrey Hepburn, if anyone can help or has seen any in the shops then please let me know. Thanks again all, the search continues...

Hiya again bootcutboy

Have you tried M&S, they usually have really nice ones. Tend to be around the £50 mark but you may find a voucher or discount

...how weird, i wrote that before i clicked on the link, that design is actually from about 4/5 seasons ago, they had them in lost of colours i loved the same one. They have had few other nice and similar ones since
