I'd like a new handbag. What's nice and how much to spend?

I've been using a £15 new look black handbag for years and think I really deserve something nicer, but no idea where to start.

I've always had black as it goes with everything but it's so boring. Would grey go with most things? How much would you spend?

Please can you give me some inspiration? Thanks.

Budget is about £60. Is that enough?

I like over the shoulder and I'd like to be able to carry a purse, phone, tissues, hand cream, lip balm, mini umbrella, little water bottle, banana. I use a changing bag if I'm out with the DC's so it doesn't need to be huge, but would be nice to have a bit of space.

look at the leather bags in TK Maxx, they are usually good value and have lots and lots to choose from. I recently got this one from there for £44!

If you want to get away from black, this is nice summer bag

There's a few bargains left over at Tabitha?
Perhaps cream or tan?

Thanks for the suggestions. Unfortunately I'm not really keen on any of them. I think I prefer a slouchy look rather than a structured one. Are slouchy handbags still fashionable?
