HtCC: My Wardrobe

Acne dress (£370) * Acne boots (£498) * Acne dress (£190) * Paul & Joe Sister dress (£243) * Paul & Joe Sister coat (£368) * Paul & Joe Sister dress (£155) * Mulberry Bayswater (£775) * Mulberry Postmans Lock boot (£475) * Mulberry Carter camera bag (£895) *

I’ve blogged about my-wardrobe before, it’s one of my favourite designer sites to perv over and make a shopping list as long as, well, at least 3 credit card limits.

In the image above are a few things I’d love from Acne, Paul & Joe Sister and Mulberry (of course) I’m especially in love with the purple Acne dress in the top right, it probably wouldn’t look that good on me, but oh so pretty. And would match my new handbag (coincidentally, the same colour and material as the Bayswater in the bottom left)

Sooooo….which one of you is going to buy me all this? I’m pretty sure you didn’t get me a birthday present…

Hello Lover

I’m in love.

As some of you may know, it was my birthday last Monday. One of the running jokes between Alex and I is that I want a Mulberry handbag and he won’t buy me one. (I insist that the Mulberry for Target bags don’t count because they’re not properly Mulberry)

Its a Bayswater clutch wallet, in red onion pebbled patent leather with pewter metalwork. Or for the non nerdy fans, its a beautiful reddish purple leather clutch with pewter lock and chain.

Its a great size for the little bits I would need, and OH ITS JUST SO PRETTY. SO. PRETTY.

(Also, this is my 500th published post. Hooray! Thank you guys for still reading this stuff!)

The Perfect Bag

We were waiting in Heathrow T5 for our flight to San Francisco, Alex had just dragged me out of the Mulberry store they have there (T5 has quite “high end” shops in it, which surprised me because they were full of the sorts of things that you wouldn’t buy on impulse) so I turned to the Mulberry iPhone/iPad app and sneakily looked a things I could never afford.

Then I saw this bag and squeaked because IT IS PERFECT.

Things I like in a handbag:

  • Big (this is a Bayswater, so its pretty massive. I have one of the Target ones and it is HUGE. I could probably fit a frozen turkey in there if I so desired.) (yes, I’m still sad that we didn’t get to have Christmas dinner)
  • Grey (I have a bit of a thing for grey in the same way that most people love black. Grey is the best non colour ever.)
  • Leather (I always try to buy leather handbags whenever possible, because they last forever. Grey leather handbag I bought 4 years ago from Topshop still going strong – its only because I have been given quite a few handbags recently that its been put away)
  • Pretty (The Bayswater is a pretty classic style, you have to admit)

Not only that but TEAPOTS. TEA. POTS. I know. I’ll admit, I don’t quite know WHY there are teapots all over the handbag, but I don’t care. It is like this handbag was designed for me.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t (because it it was, wouldn’t I have been given one?). And more sadly, it’s a LOT of money. Like, £4000.

My secret hope is that no one will buy it (because obviously it wasn’t designed for them) and it will turn up in our local factory shop around the end of August for about um 99% of the price. I might have a chance of someone buying it for my birthday then.
