The boddington large hobo, I should say.

An update - I have decided on the Ridley boddington. Within budget at £199, in the orangey colour, though the blue is lovely too. Very pleased indeed as tis simply perfect. Still coveting a lucia on the side though.

I bought this online this morning. They also have it in red and Red Direct have it in brown but more expensive.

Ha ha, two bags are always better than one!

You've all been brilliant with your suggestions. they nice, but not right though - always something that isnt right about them. I am going to go with the lucia, as I think ive been looking for something that looks like it. A bit like the vw golf advert!

The fist bag you liked to Madamme is lovely though, so maybe I will have to have that as well.

Thanks again.

Baragin- nat and nin bags are beautifully soft leather, and a bit more 'slouchy' than they appear in the photos.

Madamme, I'm a fusspot, I know. They're all a bit too smart for me, I think. The second of the three is the nicest, but I don't think it would go over my shoulder when I'm wearing a thick coat. i like soft leather, casual looking bags, but I still think the one that comes closest is the lucia.

Do I need to up the budget? I would for the right bag.

over budget but gorgeous

Ooooh! I should also have said that I like a shoulder bag t be a shoulder bag, and not a bag that you hold in your hand with a shoulder strap - sorry. I know I'm demanding.

The top one is the nicest of the lot for me. The second and fourth ones are a bit too structured, and the yellow one is of yellow for this time of year for me.

Thanks for the assistance though!

I go back to work me to work next week after maternity leave. I need a new bag to make it easier!

It has to be:
Leather, but not suede
Have long enough straps to go over my shoulder comfortably
Not be too big as I am a shortie and bags can swamp me, but big enough for iPad mini, wallet, book, paper diary, keys and some make up
In a colour that goes with things, but not be brown or black. So grey, purple, a decent all round tan would be ok I suppose
Not have much gold on it
Be under 200 pounds, ideally

I like the peony and Moore lucia, but so man people I know have it and I'd like something different.
