So the weekend has arrived!! filled with bags and my wish list has been scaled down immensely, however the “holy-grail” of bags … Chanel , double flap Maxi or Jumbo with gold hardware still lingers … Though after many YouTube video views its got some competition 😉😱.. Especially with Yves Saint Laurent- the large ysl monogram bag with gold hardware…of course I still would include a daily bag from the timeless YSL .. and it’s the YSL large college monogram bag in black with brushed silver . … Perfect for day i.e my daily needs and adds a little edge to any evening outfit …. Yes both bags are black but have their own appeal… Each to their own.. . Oh before I forget the Louis Vuitton is still on the list so that’s why its in the photo.👜💕🙈
The gold hardware is the classic large YSL & The college YSL on the right.. Above is the LV Pochette Metis the ideal everyday for me 😉😊😝.
On another bag note Friday was a OMG moment as I scaled down my mulberry collection but then I added to it too … I know.. I know but this was just the icing on the cake!! Any Mulberry fanatic would understand ..
I actually went for another Mulberry Cara in Large, I know its crazy but I have looked and tried so many Oak mulberry bags even tried the Bayswater in printed Oak just wasn’t me… Far too heavy to carry on your arm, lovely to look at but its supposed to be used, not to just sit and look pretty !!
So after going through the Del Reys .. The Lily’s and the Bayswaters the cara was the best option for me and especially with the NVT – natural vegetable tanned leather in case your wondering.. The NVT is the tough thick grainy leather so hard wearing as opposed to the calf and lamb nappa which is supper smooth and easily scratched… To me the Oak cara is perfect; wear it handheld , shoulder and backpack so great for running around and you don’t have to compromise with any of your bag paraphernalia 😝.
After this newly acquired luxe, I resulted to a spring clean in bags, also thought hmm maybe I’ve kind of have all the bags I want from Mulberry, though the Black medium lily with gold hardware still tempts me but hey a handbag fanatic is never done… Right ladies?? We all know never to say never….😊😜
But this is when the YSl moment happened.. as im not at the Chanel stage yet the YSL fits the bill nicely …on all accounts.
After a very thought after spring clean I am parting with these … Three Mulberry’s!!
The postman’s lock satchel…
The oversized Alexa chocolate brown..SOLD
The medium Lily in indigo…SOLD
These three are currently for sale to fund the LV & YSL’s. 🙈😉
The Alexa has been sold but the Postman & Lily are still up for sale .😊😊
It’s a long post this week …but hey its taken a lot of thought building a collection that I can enjoy and use for a lifetime. So investing in the right luxe is key.
I still love finding other designers and their luxe bags. Recently Emma Hill’s bags caught my eye.. For those who don’t know who she is, she was the designer behind Mulberry’s Lily and now has introduced her own line “Hill & Friends” with bright fun design still with simlarities to the Lily.
The similarities are clear, however the lock on bag has a fun twist to it …😜
Hope you enjoyed this post…
