I go away with work quite a lot but only for a day or two so I really need a nice, yet fashionable, holdall as a suitcase is far too big and a handbag way too small (especially with all the rubbish I carry around in mine)! It also needs to be reasonably smart as it'll be seen at work (ie no neon pink ones)! I've looked all over and all I can find are either boring old leather ones or ones that would make me look like a 74 yr old going away on a coach holiday.
I've looked in House of Fraser, Debenhams, ASOS, Selfridges, John Lewis, Harvey Nichols, all the small highstreet shops like Dorothy Perkins/Oasis/Next/River Island... Where else is there?!
