I am looking for a smart handbag for work for the summer months. I would like something fairly large, pref with some leather details, structured, smart looking, made of dark straw/raffia, can go on shoulder or hand held, budget around £100. This one from Ralph Lauren is pretty close except for the fact that it's too soft (not structured enough) and, in my opinion, very overpriced.
I don't want it to look like the ones you take to the beach with pom poms and stuff (already got those! grin); needs to be smart, despite the material. Help?!

What about something like this

Thanks Yewtown. Not keen to be honest. It has more fake leather than straw and it's a little too small.

The Michael Kors Naomi seems about the best I can find, but would involve overseas postage and a wee bit over budget:

Thanks Whitney, I do like that bag and I'm not usually a fan of Michael Kors...

Maybe this may be more what you are after

Thank you Yewtown. Definitely the nicest one so far although I'd like something a little smarter. Very very nice though!

I have found the perfect bag but it's last year's stock so nowhere to be found

Thank you sleeping. I'm reluctant to pay that kind of money on something from Ebay. How can I be sure it's the real thing?

Bit over budget and maybe you weren't wanting something patterned but this Ted Baker one is nice:
