Now as a child my mom always had a large leather holdall which always looked so amazing. She would arrive from London with the most amazing new clothes and shoes and her leather holdall full of presents for us xxxx So ever since then i have always wanted a beautiful large leather holdall but of cause could never afford one. Now that i can (at a push) i'm torn at the fact that one can get such sensible travel bags which have compartments and wheels so the thought of carrying a huge heavy leather bag full of things haunts me ! not to mention the weight restrictions on flights these day are serious so the lighter the load the better … so do i really want one now ??????????
