Lordy, I wish I wasn't fussed about it! I do love red - and I like plainer bags (hate logos) so maybe that explains some of my obsession.
She said they will not be making red again for fall '08, at least as far as she knows. The two colors she said Mabel will be in for fall are a marine blue (OMG! that would be fabulous) and fuchsia! Also, she said the Bayswater for fall '08 will be in tangerine and magenta. *Marks calendar to cut up credit cards on August 1st*
brilliant. I can imagine Kroquet's boots but did you have pink or white slouchy canvass boots? Oh and knee length boots with the laces up the back that were worn with leg warmers to keep their shapeThe hardest bit was then trying to put on boots without the zip pinging open again! I used to pay my little sister to put mine on for me!!!
'Ello riffraff! I love Brit humor. And yes, you're right - that poor lonely Bayswater needs to go out and about at least once before I bring out my spring/summer bags. I love the Bayswater - it reminds me of a Birkin but better, IMO. And easier to get into. And less expensive (thank God!)Well 'Ello Flower (sorry Brit humour) and welcome to the mad house. Totally off topice but just thought I think we need a smilie in a straight jacket.
I think you're right about the black bays being a total classic, I do think you need to take it out for a spin though. Doesn't even need to be anywhere special, just throw on some jeans and go for a coffee staring at yourself whenever you walk past shop windows to see how fab you look.
Thanks! I have other bags that are similar size and they're perfect for me. I'm 6' tall so I need a fairly big bag. I am very excited! Now, keep your fingers crossed that it arrives when my DH isn't home! It's not that he would mind (though I think my bag & shoe & perfume obsession perplexes him a bit) but since I'm not going to actually use it till fall, I feel there is just no need for full disclosure at this time. Hee hee!Flower - way to go!!! From the dimensions, I think the bag will be perfect size.
Aren't you just too excited??? The SA's in the stores are so nice and helpful. Good luck and Congrats!!!! BTW - marine blue sounds really nice
Hi Sarajane - Thank you for the welcome! Yes, Bridget Jones and also Becky from the Shopaholic series. You all are so fun to "listen" to!Hi Goldenflower - welcome to the Mulberry girls' gang - I love the fact you think we're all like Bridget Jones here - actually sums up our humour spot on I would say.
I am so envious of your red Mabel, I am searching for a medium one right now.
Thank you for the welcome! I love your user name ... though I was always terrible with the hula hoop (too uncoordinated!) I have to learn what to do to post pics ... is there a tutorial somewhere? I'm excited to get it and hope I like it as much as I think I will.Hello and welcome goldenflower Congratulations on the mabel, it is a lovely bag - you must let us know when you get it and post some pics
OMG, I have been laughing at everyone's posts! Too scarily familiar, especially the lying down on the bed to zip up the jeans. All that suffering in the name of fashion - if one can call that era fashion!Goldenflower - see how we always go off topic??? You wil get used to that as, it's our endearing quality!!
