OK, so my bag ban lasted a good month and I am now carefully considering my next purchase. I'm mindful of not wanting to buy anything I haven't tried out IRL first. And I'm also trying to think about what I need rather than what I covet. What I need is a black leather bag, one shoulder strap with a comfortable length drop. I'd like it to close at the top and preferably not be too heavy. I am thinking about the MJ Christy (I know, I know, wrong forum!) but I really would prefer a Mulberry. However, it seems like it's the wrong season to look for a black bag. I was going to make an exception to the one strap thing for the Mollie but I really didn't like it that much IRL. I am finding myself thinking more and more about the classic Roxanne but I'm not sure that black is the best colour for Roxy. I love her in oak but wonder if she would be too similar to my oak Emmy Also, I really don't have a gap in my wardrobe for the Roxanne - I just feel like I'll end up getting one at some point. And then, I get bored on my quest for a black bag and start thinking about colour. I love the Mulberry whites & pinks that are around at the moment but I have a white bag and a pink bag already so I definitely don't need anything (although the combination of white leather and silver hardware is fab ) I think I have a gap in my handbag wardrobe for something in indigo or purple. So, the indigo EW Bayswater is definitely on my radar. I also don't have any smaller bags that I could use for evening - the EWB might fulfill this brief. Plus, it shouldn't be too expensive if I can find one at one of the outlets. I haven't seen it IRL yet, but I really love the Milton in marine. However, I just don't think I could hand over that much money for a handbag - even if I did fund it by selling some of my existing bags. My initial thought was to save like mad and buy it but now I'm thinking that, if I love it, I'll wait for the sales and, if it's meant to be, I'll be able to get one. (In the meantime, I spotted the Chloe Maya on Matches in turquoise or purple and really love that, too - surprisingly, it's cheaper than the Milton, but I'm sure it's not to everyone's taste and, again, wrong forum. I'm just trying to consider ALL my options before my next purchase. You see, I *have* gotten sensible) Anyway, sorry, this is a long rambling post. Just thinking out loud really. Has anyone got any comments on any of the bags I've mentioned? Alternatively, what's on your wishlist this Spring/Summer??
