Radley Grosvenor Medium Leather Flap Shoulder Bag
Not good for every day use.
Initially I really liked this handbag. The styling is great. There's lots of useful pockets. It's the perfect size. However having lived with it for a few months I've discovered a few problems. Firstly it weighs a tonne. Even empty it's heavier than any other bag I own. Secondly the strap is held together and to the body by metal pins rather than a buckle. On five occasions now these have come undone while carrying it. The strap has given way and the bag has plummeted to the floor scattering my belongings everywhere. Thirdly, the lining is a pale beige ribbed fabric. On one of the strap occasions a bottle of foundation smashed in the bag leaving an obvious stain. Because the lining is so pale and ribbed, I can't clean it all off. Was bought this as a present so can't return it, but I would if I could.

Handbag of excellent design
The handbag meets my requirements. The length of its strap meets my need and it is also adjustable. Its many pockets are very useful for putting small items, such as travel card, lip sticks, tissues, etc. and makes it very convenient to get these items.

Promised myself this following a recent employment tribunal outcome. It is not good to love 'things' but I totally love this shoulder bag. It is a work of art in leather - fantastic colour, perfect size and great understated detailing. I would recommend it without hesitation.

I just got two of these in the offer in green & purple. I do not agree with the other review. This bag is not heavy at all. It's made of excellent quality leather, sits very comfortably on the shoulder, fits all your daily essentials and has extra pockets. It looks very stylish, a bit like a satchel so bang on trend. The colours I bought are gorgeous, very unusual. I am over the moon with my two new bags. I love them. Also, as always, John Lewis click & collect service is the best on the high street.
