It’s not THE classic black bag, since I’m not ready to part with the money for a 2.55 (although I did try one on when I was in Mykonos). But I have found a beautiful new addition to my handbag collection to pacify my lust for a grown up black handbag! If you already follow me on instagram then you’ll already have seen a sneak peek of my new baby a few weeks back.. but I thought it was only right I gave her a proper introduction!
I’ve been on the hunt a while now for a classic black bag that I can use for smart occasions as well as day to day. I love my Bayswater and it’s such a classic shape that for a while I thought about just investing in another. But then it seemed daft to buy a bag the same shape, and I’d set eyes on the Del Rey last year! In the last Mulberry sale, the oversized Del Rey was reduced but being more of a suitcase than a handbag (and since I already have my Zara bucket bag), I decided to pass. The normal sized Del Rey was perfect though – and actually very similar in size to the Bayswater. So when it appeared in the sale this time around, I couldn’t resist snapping one up!
I know it’s a lot to pay for a bag, but I’m a sucker for Mulberry.
