We were broken into last night whilst we were upstairs asleep and amongst some other stuff, my handbag was stolen. Police have just left. So I'm trying to cheer myself up by looking for a new one. But I hardly ever see bags I like. The bag that was stolen was an Orla Kiely one, leather, shoulder strap, in red with tan trim - plain rather than patterned. And I loved it .
So - ideal replacement would be mid sized, leather, able to put over my shoulder without being immediately below my armpit, involve colour but probably not pattern, and I like a semi structured shape - nothing too boxy but nothing saggy either. Budget - up to £250 ideally, but if I get desperate, I might just throw money at it...
Three I have found so far are here but none are perfect:
A final good news story to this - the police have just called and they have found my bag! I'm not sure what state it's in, and they still need to fingerprint it, but with any luck, I won't need to buy a new one!
