    Default Miche Bag

    I think I've got the right channel!

    Has anyone actually bought a Miche Bag. If so I'd be very interested to hear any comments.



    If you haven't, what's put you off purchasing so far?

    Thankyou
    WS.

    I like the concept but what kind of bag person are you? I like a bag to have outside pockets, maybe some shiny badge or buckles, I like various shapes and sizes, materials and textures. Leather is "my bag" at the moment so that is what has put me off buying 1 for myself. If the made various shapes and sizes to put shells on, with various textures of sequins, crinkled leather, croc or metalics then I would certainly grab 1 and a few shells.

    I've got loads of different bags as well. My fave at the moment is the Coach Bag my wonderful husband bought me for Christmas - earning himself loads of Brownie points LOL!!!

    Miche bags are obviously all the same shape but the textures, styles and colours and very different. This is the site on ebay I've used, he's got a really quick delivery and they are all brand new.

    I think I'll probably use mine when I go on holiday, so I only take one bag but lots of different shells. The only thing I don't like is the long handles, so I've found a long handle from another bag and put that on and it looks and feels better.

    I like the idea, but they're a bit formal looking to me and I prefer softer, more slouchy looking leather bags.

    A girl at work has one, and she bought several shells from the ebay seller linked above. The bag is a very clever concept, good quality and looks very smart, but personally I don't like the shape - too 'boxy' for me. I saw them for sale in a mall in Chicago recently too.

    There's a good deal on them at 29.99, with two shells, which is the Black mock croc, and what the call the ginger cori. I wouldn't mind the black one, though I would have much preferred to be able to buy the bag and choose the 2 shells I wanted to go with it. The ginger cori is the last one I'd have chosen, that's probably why they're giving it away as it's not popular and then they'll retire it...if that's what they do. I really want the purple croc one with the buckle and the pink one with the bow..oh and the red one....I know you can buy the shells, but even with the discount I can't afford to spend that much, so in essence, if I did buy one, I'd have one I'm not that excited about (the black) and one I wouldn't use....a real pity!

    Default Thanks for the feedback!

    Thank you everyone for your constructive comments.

    Since my finger really isn't on the fashion pulse, I guess I wanted to hear that they're 'OK' rather than 'Oh, don't get one of those, they're really naff', so it's nice to know I haven't lost the plot completely (yet!).

    What type of bag-person are you? Good question Soziberry and I'm glad you didn't say baglady. I'm not fussed about outside pockets and the shells offered do appeal, especially the stripes and the dotty ones.

    It's the not having to move stuff from one bag to another and inevitably forgetting something that's the big draw. And from what I can see it's quite an 'organisational' interior isn't it? Getting a bit fed up with rummaging at the bottom and the proper organisational bags all look a bit utilitarian - well the ones I've seen are.

    The shape though is structured/formal/smart isn't it. Not a bad thing, but might be a bit restricting.

    The Best Direct deal certainly is a good one at the moment but it's still several 10's of by the time I've started a shell collection, since I agree that the 'starter pack' offered is a little lacklustre.

    Oh I dunno!

    Thanks again everyone, at least I know I won't be laughed at if I do purchase though!

    All the best

    Bliddy hell! I've only gone and bought one :o
    I went back and looked at them again, and decided a black one would be very useful - and I have a funeral to attend this week, but no suitable bag. So I bought one, with a black Ellie shell. :54:
    It came today. I love it! Such a clever concept. Only thing is, it came with two longer straps inside, but I don't see how they are supposed to attach? I don't like the longer straps actually, they look a bit Placky, but I was wondering how they attach, if anyone knows?

    I've taken the plunge too!

    It's just turned up at the office, not bad as I ordered it last Thursday.

    It looks really quite good, but I can't have a proper nose around it as I've got to get on with some work - will have to wait until lunchtime.

    It looks like the long straps have loops at the end and slide on the metal rings which have hinges (you have to move them around a bit to see them). How easy it is I don't know yet, it shall get a thorough road test this evening.

    I had the black and ginger shell which came with it and ordered the red ellie, brown christine and stripey one which it's wearing at the moment. Approx 60 all in.

    On the whole, me likey.

    Hope you get on with yours Pick a Lilly

    Also got my free gift, so I'll put that on the other thread (Mad Mike's....)
