I've always been a total bag-a-holic, whenever I used to visit my granddad the first thing he would always ask me is 'have you bought any new handbags lately?' before he even said hello. And the answer was most probably yes. I love the way a bag is so easy to buy, one size fits all. They say you are either a bag or shoe fanatic and since my size 9 feet make shoe-shopping so depressing it's always bags for me.

I'm currently scouring the net & highstreet for a new investment bag that will look great come autumn/winter and then take me through to spring summer. Currently I am on a low budget, but when my student loan arrives I am planning to invest in something leather, that is both durable and stylish. Here a couple handbags I think are great buys for the upcoming season and beyond:

1. For a Marc Jacobs bag this tote is great value for money at just £245 from Netaporter.com. The grey reptile effect leather is so a/w09 as is the over the body strap. Will look great with all colours, navy, black, brown, brights, you name it.
2. I fell in love with this Twenty8twelve handbag last a/w when I was working for high street retailer Emma Somerset, that is sadly no more. The new buyer had just brought in Twenty8twelve clothing, the range designed by Sienna and designer sister Savannah, to attract a younger market. At £460 this patent leather box bag was totally out of my budget, however it's suddenly popped up on the asos outlet with an incredible 66% off, making it £155. Which is a real bargain for such an unusual yet classic handbag. I'm so tempted!
