Mummy purse, help!

Please help style gurus. I'm shoddy, really shoddy, at fashion etc so I have no clue here.

I want a new mummy purse. If that means something else here I mean a large purse. blush

I currently have a 7yo dkny one that I love but it's been used to death and I need to replace. I don't have a lot of money but am willing to pay if it's good quality.

I'm picky as hell though. I would say I'm after the impossible but clearly I've found it before grin.

So basically rather than screw you all about, could you gurus let me know brands that are decent lasting quality?

I'm sadly not finding anything dkny that's hitting and I've browsed my local tk maxx and Debenhams.

I'm near London so can make a trip to browse easily!

Thank you all

I have a Michael Kors zip around one which is big and durable. Plenty of card space, room for notes, receipts etc as well as a coin zip part.

I can also fit my iPhone in it if I am just nipping out and don't want to take a bag.

Pricey but had mine for 3 years and still looks brand new.

Head to tk Maxx. There will be loads of choice at good prices!

I have a black ted baker purse. It's pretty big and as it looks nice I double it up as a clutch bag when I go out as it fits my s6 into it aswell xx

I have a Kipling Brownie wallet and a small coin purse (which has a lobster claw fastener) to keep loose coins for parking .

I love my mulberry one, but appreciate its a lot of money to spend on a purse.
There's plenty of card space, a big zip compartment for coins, and plenty other bits for notes, receipts ect. I love mine and after 3years it still looks like new

I've just bought a big one in river island. failing that try a luggage/handbag shop

Nice to hear about the MK wallet being a laster, I'm seeing them around a lot right now, and totally forgot about Kipling! And thanks for all the other suggestions, I've got my mind going now.
