THANKS EVERYONE FOR YOUR HELP!!!!!!!
To elvisfan4life : I was looking for the lipstick color (which I really love personally) but I think your champagne one is really nice aswell. I have never saw it in real life. Thanks alot for your honest opinion.
To corries2 thanks alot for providing me photos. You've got 2 really beautiful mabels. I really like them (especially the lipstick one.... lol ) and they suit you alot.
I think I'll continue my search for a mabel shoulder bag because as you said it's not similar to a camera bag at all.
Im not sure if Canopy in Nottingham - or any other Canopy store- might still have the lipstick shoulder at 50% off- it was certainly in the Nottingham one a couple of weeks ago as they still had sale bags- worth giving them a call if you are anywhere near a canopy store- I called them when their sale was on and the nice lady there rang round all their stores and emailed a list of what each store had!! I know their sale in Nottingham was still on last week cos my OH told me as he works in Nottingham and went past it on the way to the bank
Now that butterscotch is really nice- even for a colour phobic like me- looks lovely on youHi haribo, this is me with my lipstick and butterscotch shoulder mabels. It's their boxiness I love. And the flexibility. I'd wear with jeans or in the evening. They are a perfect splash of colour for me. Up close the hardware makes them nothing like a camera bag. Not a bit of velcro in sight!
