Dreaming of Mulberry

Mulberry Website: Born in 1971, the roots of Mulberry are in Somerset, England. Mulberry’s founder, Roger Saul, established the brand at his kitchen table, with £500 backing from his mother. His sister designed our instantly-recognisable tree logo – both that, and the name “Mulberry” come from the trees he would pass each day on his way to school. All of this represented a love of nature, the importance of family and the growth of a fundamentally British brand.  

For more than forty years, Mulberry has been a leading British lifestyle brand, internationally acclaimed for our quality and design. Mulberry’s handbags – the Trout satchel, the Bayswater and the Alexa – have become contemporary classics, iconic examples of British design and manufacturing expertise. Roger Saul’s successors, Design and Creative Directors Nicholas Knightly, Stuart Vevers, Emma Hill and, from 2015, Johnny Coca have each placed their own stamp on Mulberry, reinterpreting the brand to chime with the fashion moment.  Mulberry today offers a unique point of view on heritage. We continue to celebrate the contradictions of a truly British identity, looking back to our archives and rich British traditions and examining them from a new perspective. A sense of the past reinvented with the spirit of now. Heritage yet modern, classic, yet unclassic.

For as long as I can remember I have always loved Mulberry handbags and purses and with it be a quintessentially British brand, Manufacturing and it’s a heritage it makes it that bit more special.  I don’t know what it is about Mulberry but their bags a beautifully designed, good quality material and stunning colours.  I haven’t browsed their website for a while until I got an email in my inbox the other day, so I loaded up the site and had a browsing session and dreamed of owning one.

Below are a selection of what stood out to me and all bar one are in a price range which i could possibly save up for.  My first find was the Mini Seaton: The Seaton’s sleek lines and streamlined silhouette contrast with refined equestrian-inspired detailing and the signature Rider’s Lock. As you can see in the picture below the bag is a good size and ideal for day to evening you can carry it with the handle or as across the body, I also love the design of the fastening. They do this in 6 different colours, I’m liking the Oxblood and Clay, it’s priced at £895 so this bag will have to stay on the Dreaming Want List for a little while as I just don’t have £900 to hand.  The other finds was a small coin pouch in Orchid Red, its a cute size and with it being priced at £140.00, this could be my first Mulberry purchase as I could save this up within two or three months.  The next find was the Long Part Zip Wallet again in Orchid Red at a price of £255, but this comes with a little gift in the form of a coin purse, I know it’s not the same as the Part Zip Coin Pouch but I’m thinking maybe just getting the Long Zip Wallet, so this would mean four months of saving which is realistic.

My last find was the Small Amberley Satchel: Introducing the Amberley, first seen on the London Fashion Week catwalk. Inspired by British countryside pursuits, the Amberley gets its ring hardware and satchel shape from traditional equestrian styling.  The colours I like in this style are Oak Natural, Oxblood and Orchid Red, it has the same fastening as the Mini Seaton, and can be worn on the shoulder or as across the body.  It’s priced at £595.00, it’s within my price bracket but it would be six months worth of saving.  I love all of the items and I’d love to own all of them but I know that isn’t possible so just owning one Mulberry Item would be a dream.

Well I hope you are all having a good Saturday so far?  Hope you have all enjoyed reading this post..  Let me know what your favorite Mulberry Item is?

Lots of Love



OOTD • 23rd September 2017

Can’t believe its been a week since my birthday, this time last week Cheryl & I were having brunch at Vinoteca, near Kings Cross.

I didn’t know what to wear, as the weather on Friday was lovely in Peterborough and London but looking at the weather for Sat 23rd, it said it would be sunny and cloudy being 20c, so I was going to layer up but then I didn’t want to take a big bag or be carrying anything so I opted for lightweight trousers, bodysuit, leather jacket, lightweight scarf and flat leopard print shoes.

All what I am wearing apart from the scarf and bag are from New Look I love this look, and I felt confident and comfortable as over the last year I have lost over 3 stone so I wanted to show off my new figure! I wanted to go for a Smart Casual look, which I think I pulled off.

I think the scarf and Micheal Kors bag just finish the outfit off, its quite a simple but effective look.  This definatly a look I would wear again, as I have these trousers in black and a grey and black speckle effect.  They also do them in  a Burgundy which I am hoping to get also.

Hope you have enjoyed this post 😊

All New Look 😆

Hope your all having a great Sunday Funday 🎉🎉


Primark Insta Stories

Was on Primarks Insta Stories this week and spotted some new season boots.. So I’ll be looking out for these next time I’m in Primark 💁🏼


Michael Kors Wants 

I was browsing the Michael Kors website on my lunch a few weeks ago, and shock I’ve spotted bags that I want.. So I either need one of three things!?

 1) A rich man to buy me them? 2) Save up or 3) Get a magic card!!

If you read or follow my blog you will know I purchased my first Michael Kors item in New York in Dec 2015 on Blecker Street near to Carrie Bradshaw’s Stoop they use in SATC.

Anyway back to the blog post in hand.. Here are my selection of bags that I want!

Jet Set Large Saffiano Leather Crossbody £160 each 

Beckett Large Leather Satchel £285

They also do this in a Burnt Red also which is nice, so I’m not sure which I would get if I had the chance, but I would need to have a look at both in the flesh..

When it comes to me buying Michael Kors Handbag I like to have a different style and not what is common. Let’s hope I can get at least two of these this year?

Or if anyone is feeling generous and would like to buy me one or get in contact with Michael to see if he would like to gift one to me!? 💁🏻 💋
