Help me find a fab work handbag!

I am just about to go back to work after a 2nd stint of maternity leave. My old Radley handbag has given up the ghost and I need a new one. I love some of the bags on the other handbag thread at the moment but they are too small for me.

I need something that is large enough to take an A4 notepad, with a zipped pocket or two for purse, phone etc, and can be carried over the shoulder. A neutral colour that will do for winter or summer - black would be fine, or a nice grey or dark tan.

Something like this maybe:

but in leather not plastic.

Any ideas? Help me look like a smart business woman again rather than an old scruffbag in jeans!

It depends how much you want to spend... I love TKMaxx for sheer selection and of course knock-down prices!

I have a Fiorelli bag from there, red, leather (I think..?) and it came with a tag on it that said "fits A4 folders" There were a few designs with that tag so obviously targeted to businesswomen. Mine was £40, originally £65. I can't see the same one on the website at the moment but its like this but in red.

Hm it's tempting at that price but the bag will get used every day, bashed around on the Tube etc so I am thinking a plastic one might start looking manky quite quickly. If I see a good leather one I'd rather go for that.
