I have the coconut with tassels which I love :heart: as it is not too white however I have not seen the nude one. I have not had a prob yet with the coconut re everyday useage... LOL - unsure whether this is a help!

The nude is rather like a light peach colour. I'd say you'd need to see it IRL before buying as it's one of those shades you either love or hate.

Um I just bought one in nude.....I swear I'm not copying your taste Bayley (it just seems a lot similar to mine sometimes!!!). I didn't like this bag in coconut as I wasn't keen on the colour of the embroidery, but I saw it in nude for the first time today and was struck by what a flexible colour it is. My bag is definitely more of a beige rather than a peach - though I am sure I've seen peachy toned nudes before (cripes doesn't that sounds rude.... :biggrin: ) so I wonder if there are different nude shades as there are different lavender shades? I really didn't like the nude colour I've seen before, it was too much like an undyed skintone, very odd.

I honestly didn't mean to buy anything today at all! We went out for a hike in the country and it started snowing so we decided to go to Cheshire Oaks seeing as we were only 20 miles away. I felt like such a numpty walking into Mulberry in my Goretex jacket, waterproof trousers and hiking boots....luckily the sales assistant in there was as lovely to me as they always are. I didn't dare go into Burberry though, I was too intimidated!!!

OOOOOh can you post some pics? I'd love to see a blenheim in this colour! The blenheim is my favourite bag at the moment!

If the raspberry glace one is the one I think you mean Kroquet, then thats gorgeous!!

I do wish mulberry would bring back the antique glace.

No probs rascal, a fellow drooler is always welcome!!

The raspberry is gorgeous, but still quite expensive for a second hand bag. I know the antique glace is not longer available, but still, a blenheim is retailing new at the outlets for £197 now (when they can be tracked down!).

good heads up hulahoop - thanks!

Gorgeous, unique bag though! Quite liking the look of the effie too, seems a similar style to the blenheim.

Sure....I think that the tasselled bags look a lot different to the traditional Blenheims though. As I already have a Rosemary I couldn't really justify an ordinary Blenheim, but this looks a lot different :biggrin:

Here is the Blenheim on its own (I have sharpened the picture so you can see the stitching detail more easily), and with the lavender Rosemary so you have a colour reference:
