beautiful soft leather teal bag
This bag was a birthday treat and is a beautiful teal colour (rather than blue) in a lovely soft leather, with a useful slip and zip pockets on the outside and a further zip pocket inside. The idea of having two different length straps is very clever but there is clearly a design fault here since only one is detachable! The problem with the shorter fixed strap is that it doesn't move and drop down when wearing the bag with the longer strap and is in the way when you try and get into the bag. I have considered removing it completely but as I have only had the bag for a few days, I will persevere and see if I can get on with it!
Despite the strap, the bag is perfect in every other way so I would recommend it!

Not as picture but....
its still a lovely bag. I ordered this expecting a blue leather bag but mine is much more green in colour. It also looks quite square in the photo but its not. Don't get me wrong I'm still keeping it and have used it but it wasn't what i expected. Also do you think for the price WS you could included a dust bag in future?

Best bag bought for ages!
My mum just bought me this for my birthday in the gorgeous blue colour and am so pleased with it I had to write a review! Lovely soft leather, really roomy inside with useful inside pocket for phone and zipped pocket for keeping train tickets,etc. The two different straps for wearing on shoulder or across body are great and although had concerns that smaller strap that is not detachable would get in way, it has proven to be fine. Good value too for a leather bag..... Definitely recommend!

A deceptively roomy bag with useful outer compartments. Usual WS quality and lovely soft leather. I wear mostly as an across the shoulder bag but its nice to have the choice of wearing with the shorter strap too. My only gripe is that i would prefer to be able to remove the shorter strap as it does tend to get in the way when wearing with the longer strap.

Perfect bag, don't hesitate :)
This really is the perfect bag for everyday versatility, tan colour and size means it goes with everything, beautiful leather that smells of quality new leather. I have to carry medications, water etc with me so this bag is a perfect size without being too big (or small that everything is bulging) and I find it comfortable using the shorter shoulder strap (fits neatly under the arm with a little space left), carrying it held down holding onto straps or across body distributes weight which is ideal.
I have just swapped all my stuff from old bag to this one and I had that lovely feeling when you do so with a new bag! I know I won't need to swap my things out of it for a very very long time! (Until I buy the blue one too!).

A stunning, quality leather bag.
I received this beautiful bag in October, it is a lovely tan colour which goes with everything and as expected the leather is such good quality it has only got better with use. The two straps of differing lengths make this a truly versatile bag and one that I am constantly complimented on, I'm sure this won't be my last bag from White Stuff!

A bag for all seasons!
This is a fabulous quality leather bag. It's a mid-sized bag, so plenty of room to fit everything in, but without moving into the realms of a tote or shopper. It has two different length straps, which I think is a great styling addition. A shorter one to wear it as a shoulder bag and a longer one so it can be worn as a Xbody bag. The longer strap is detachable. Very clever! The zip fastening means everything is nice and secure inside but it also has a zipped pocket and a magnetic popper pocket on the outside of the bag to store stuff you need to get to quickly, like keys. A very clever piece of styling all round!

Lovely every day bag
I bought this bag a few months ago and it just gets better and better. The leather is beautifully soft and has weathered really well. It has two straps - one for just over the shoulder which sits really comfortably, and another, longer strap which is adjustable - I generally use the longer strap and have it as an accross the body bag. I love the two outside pockets. and the internal zip pocket. All in all it is a lovely everyday bag and excellent value for leather.

Lovely everyday bag
Lovely colour, nice leather and good options with the 2 straps. I didn't have a problem with the strap lengths, hooks over shoulder comfortably. Another quality product from WS..

Perfect for me
I have been looking for an everyday bag for a long time and this bag fit exactly what I was looking for including the 2 straps. Love the quality, well made, right price (again, for me), plus the store assistant was really helpful! This is my first purchase from White Stuff, and I must say I am very impressed. Will definitely go back for more!

Lovely, but sadly disappointing...
I saw this bag online and loved it and I picked it up in store and loved it even more... then I looked at it more closely.
The colour is a gorgeous deep tan and the leather is very good quality. The little bird is very cute and the pocket at the front is very handy.
However, the strap is really, really short!! Once you put your arm through it and it's sitting on your shoulder the top of the bra is tucked right under your armpit... and that's without a coat or jumper etc...
There is a longer strap which is adjustable and much better, but unless you remove the original strap by cutting it off (and frankly what a waste of money!!) then you have to leave it on the bag and it gets in the way when trying to open the bag and looks silly too.
This would have been a perfect bag if it hadn't been for the silly strap! Do something about it White Stuff!!
