A peek inside my wardrobe – Why I’ll always be a Mulberry girl at heart

Mulberry

I think it’s fair to say that when it comes to money. I like it where I can see it. And that normally means on my arm in the form of a designer bag. Some people choose to spend their money on exotic holidays, fancy cars or red soled shoes. Me? I like to spend my money on designer bags. And more specifically Mulberry bags.

I guess you could say the love affair started way back in 2010. I’d just landed my first proper job in London after finishing University. And I wanted to mark the occasion with something special. Now some people may have gone out for a few drinks to celebrate a new job. But I decided to treat myself to a bag I’d lusted after. And that was this plum Bayswater. It was definitely love at first sight when I spotted this limited edition colour.

And even back in 2010 it was a lot of money. My only regret with this bag is that the goat’s leather hasn’t worn as well as I would have liked. But to be fair to the bag, I probably used it everyday for a good few years. And I still use it now when I need a big bag to put everything in. I still love the colour and I honestly think this bag will always hold a special place in my heart.

Since that first bag, I’d added five more additions to my Mulberry bag collection. Plus a makeup bag, card holder, passport holder, bracelet and keyring. I told you the obsession was real! But this post is focused on my three favourite pieces. Now you may have seen this bag in my recent Boxing Day Sales post. And yes as my newest piece is it probably my current favourite. But I just love how this bag seems to go with every outfit.

This is the Medium Lily in Taupe and I have to say I absolutely love the size of the bag. It’s perfect for everyday use as it fits in everything you need without being too heavy. Plus I love the chain options. It can either sit long and rest on my waist, or double up and sit underneath my arm. I just think this is such a classic bag, in terms of the design and colour.

So much of my clothing is moving towards a black, grey and taupe palette so, the colour of this bag matches me perfectly! I’ve only had this bag for a month or two, so it does still look new. But I’m hopeful that it won’t lose it’s shape too much over the coming years.

And my final favourite Mulberry piece is the Continental Wallet in Metallic Mushroom. Which is again another limited edition colour. But I absolutely love the cracked gold and almost iridescent look to it. I’m such a fan of bigger purses anyway, so this is perfect for me.

It manages to hold all my cards and change without losing shape. And it also fits into my bag nicely – which it didn’t in my previous one! My only regret is that I didn’t get a bigger bag in this colour as it’s honestly my favourite colour of theirs so far.

What do you think of these Mulberry pieces? Are you a fan of designer bags?

As always thank you to Kaye for taking these pictures!

    I love the purse, such a pretty colour. I always opt for Fossil which while it is designer it isn’t as high end as Mulberry x

    I really love Mulberry too, the bags are just so high quality and SO pretty! I am loving that purse, it’s so pretty in a metallic! xo

    Some girls love shoes, I am the same with handbags, I love them (have just been dropping huge hints to my husband on some bags I have just been looking at), I adore the bags you have here and need them in my life x

    Gorgeous products, never brought anything from Mulberry but always heart great things about them! Really love the new job purchase, such a great way of celebrating and remembering that celebration!

    Those are the sort of bags my wife likes, but we tend to find it hard to find one that suits her personal style. I’ll get her to look up Mulberry. Thanks!

    I have a Mulberry Bayswater in green which I’ve actually just got out the back of the wardrobe to try and use it again, I love the bags to look at but it’s not something I reach for more often than anything else.

    I have never tried Mulberry bags but I’m itching to try their wallet on a chain! I saw it on Zoella initially and it looks great!

    I love Mulberry bags and that pink one is just beautiful. I keep telling myself that I am going to treat myself to one.

    All of these bags are beautiful, but I particularly love the plum Bayswater and the Continental Wallet. The Metallic Mushroom colour is just so gorgeous!

    Love those Mulberry pieces, makes me want a wallet similar to yours! 🙂

    Such lovely mulberry pieces, they have amazing bags! I really want to get a designer handbag one day

    I love bags but dont have a mulberry and these look fantastic, i love the medium lily!

    Iv never Vought anything Mulberry. To be honest designer names are the thing of the past to me. Its all mumsy clothes now. Baggy tops to give my flab… Leggings and jumpers. The only ‘stylish’ thing I have is my big changing bag and heeled boots haha

    The bags are so lovely – I just wreck all my bags – expensive or not so I just buy from the high street these days x

    The metallic is gorgeous, my mummy love channel but finds they are not as practical as Mulberry x

    I love the wallet!!! it is such a really gorgeous colour.

    I absolutely LOVE designer bags and would much rather spend my money on them than a night out! I have a bayswater but I got it in the soft croc finish which was a bad move as it doesnt wear well, I have a Daria French purse which is superb and a lily too. Love them! xxx

  18. February 19, 2017 / 3:13 pm

    I think that pieces like handbags are always nice to splash out on! I love that plum mulberry bag so pretty x

  19. February 19, 2017 / 5:03 pm

    I do love Mulberry but I am not sure it is a brand I will ever own anything from, the prices I think are too much for what you essentially have x

    I go more for style than a designer name but the Lily bag looks lovely. It’s a great size and gorgeous colour.

  21. February 19, 2017 / 10:03 pm

    Wow your Mulberry’s are gorgeous! I really want a designer bag.

  22. February 20, 2017 / 3:08 pm

    I can never afford designer bags but I would love to get one if I could! I love the size and colour of your first one, but I love them both!
