Help me find a A/W bag!

Right. I'm 29, and it's time I had a proper, grown-up handbag. Something big enough to fit a book into, and preferably good for day and (casual) night.

My autumn/wintry coats are as follows:

- black bomber jacket with cream shearling lining
- muted grey/green slouchy parka (usually with skinny black jeans)
- one smart, long, dark green double-breasted coat - very classic and versatile, quite tailored

Any tips/suggestions? I have about £75 to spend and prefer stuff that's not too obviously 'high street' or mumsy. Not afraid of bright colours or edgy designs, but aiming for chic rather than trendy.

Please?? smile

Love the Peony Moore green bag too its really really lovely....i am v tempted at that price too...<off to drag purse out of old knackered horrid handbag>smile

Like topshop one too, but suede a pain in the rain....

Yes, I'm not so sure about the suede. Think leather is probably the way forward. I've been living out of a slouchy cotton Fat Face bag for over a year now, and though I love it I think I need something a bit more my age!

Nothing nicer than a gorgeous leather bag

Some nice ones here

I went to the Pia shop in Bath recently pamplemousserose, and the bags all looked like PU, I was really shocked when the sales lady said they were leather!

Not keen.

Really? They look nice on line and reasonable price for leather.
