Personal Shopper: A grown-up purse for Amy

Amy wrote, "Hey Outblush! I love your blog and have been following for years now (since high school, in fact!). I was hoping you could help me out with a dilemma: I've completely burned through my much-used, inexpensive purse (it has holes at the bottom) and really need to get a new one. Since I'm about to graduate from college and into the real world, I'd love to invest in something I could use for work too. I love clean lines and neutrals, but unfortunately, student loans limit my budget to $200 max. Any suggestions? Thank you! Best wishes, Amy"

This is fantastic! Thank you so much for your help! I've already picked one out from the couple you suggested and hopefully it'll be in the mail in a week or so. Thanks again!
