Is there such a thing as a day-to-evening bag? All mine are black or brown and seem suddenly heavy. I want colour, and something that would work after hours would be a budget bonus. JackieD

I know what you mean. There comes a point in the year when your black winter bag just won't do. Mulberry Bayswater clutches come in a mouthwatering range of colours and also have a strap that turns them into a shoulder bag. Alternatively, we're loving a bit of sparkle. Metallics will go with any outfit colour choice and can take you easily from day to evening. The high street has plenty of budget-friendly options, too.
