Handbag recommendation

(7 Posts)

I'm hoping someone will be able to help me put with a handbag recommendation. I am just stopping using my big changing bag as a handbag so am looking for a nice practical everyday handbag to replace it.

I suppose I need it to be:

- quite spacious (after all I'm still carting around the drinks / snacks / toys that two children seem to accrue),
- preferably 'cross body' at least as an option as I'm still either wrestling a toddler or pushing a pushchair normally when I'm out.
- practical in terms of the material
- not a budget buster price wise - I'm not looking at Mulberry here....
- a little bit organised inside - if it is just one big compartment I'll be forever losing my purse in amongst the 84 different lip balms etc that seem to reside in my bag so some little pockets or something might be good

Any suggestions? Thanks smile

I buy from

peony & moore

russell & bromley


Used to also buy from Red Direct but they were appallingly bad at xmas... What are your colour preferences and budget? Under £200? Under £300? Under £50?

Hmm, budget I would guess under £100 would be nice but maybe up to £200 for the right bag?

Colour wise I'm flexible. Wouldn't rule anything out.

I'll have a look at those sites, thanks smile

I recently bought a Modalu bag, small Pippa as it was on sale for £119 and I also had a 10% discount code.

Although it's small it holds loads.

The modalu one I got is sold out but lots more branded handbags in their sale. Delivery is super quick too.$ja=tsid:51411%7Cprd:47868&awc=4467_1375285056_32dcbce370399c4249d72106e1e3e3e5&utm_source=BargainCrazy&utm_medium=AWIN&utm_campaign=Affiliates

I have this which I find practical with baby/pram and also smart enough now I'm back at work.
