OK, need some opinions please & know you're the right lot to ask! :yes:
I have the chance of a woven Roxy in coconut/tan & brown. I saw this bag at Shepton on Saturday & picked it up but was only concentrating on getting a single tone Roxy that day.
I'm undecided about the woven look - what do you all think??? :shrugs:

To be honest, I am not a fan. Don't get me wrong it is a nice bag, but it just doesn't do it for me, sorry :smile:

Wouldn't it weigh a ton? I like the ayler, I think it is, but would probably get tired of it after a time. Be strong, you've got that lovely lemon pie Roxy and a soon to be Mabel!!

The truth.....I am not a fan of that look. Think the woven areas distract from the great design of the bag.

THis bag is way too heavy in my opinion. Still you'd develop 'Madonna' types arms if you did get it which could be a bonus :-0

I have thought about using my bags fully laden instead of weightsat my exercise class , so much more stylish don't you think? LOL

I do weights as well as bags, so I should be able to carry it, but for me the woven style makes the bag less cool.

I don't like it, I'm afraid. I think the woven styles work on plain bags - eg the Ayler & Elgin - but as the Roxy has pockets & buckles on the front, it just looks too busy, imho.

Plus, it would weigh a tonne.

Im not keen on the woven styles, just my personal preference. I think a plain one looks loads better!
