Hi Ladies,

First of all, thanks to all of you lovely ladies for answering questions for me regarding different styles. I can't see Mulberry bags IRL where I am so I really rely on your expertise.

I have one little reveal and one bag reveal--my first and only Mulberry for some time (as I have a small number of bags and am trying to keep it that way!). Anyone interested?:biggrin:

I just realized the time, so I'm going to go ahead and do this quickly since all my kids are starving and have homework to do!

First off, I ordered a black OS Alexa, and while I loved the style, it just didn't speak to me like I thought it would. I was pretty disappointed because I still like it but not enough at that price point.

I stumbled across the other bag I've long looked at but can never seem to find over here. I was very lucky to get it...

I also had a friend alert me to the seasonal sale at Mulberry NYC so I had to get a wonderful little item. I adore both of my purchases and see myself using them a great deal.

First..the Bayswater pouch!

I have always loved the Bayswater but I know that it isn't a style that I would be able to carry it everyday. However, the East West Bayswater is a wonderful alternative and I love that it fits over my shoulder. I can't believe how much actually fits in this bag--the size is very deceptive. And, although I adore Oak, I knew choco would be wonderful and very easy to care for.

A special "Thank You" goes out to Lakrits, who was kind enough to authenticate for me and help me out. Your expertise is most appreciated!;)

Ah, you are in the states. Not too late with you but i fear many of the uk ladies may have gone to bed.
Now that is a very beautiful thing, is that colour plum??? There's more??

Ah, we must have posted at the same time. Let me be the first to congratulate you on a GREAT buy. Chocolate is beautiful and the E/W bays is a great size and style. Gorgeous classic first mulberry, congratulations. The leather on these is nicer than the Alexa leather IMO and it will last you for years.

Congrats- great choice- Im another EW fan- all the style of a bays but much more practical not too big for a handbag and can go on the shoulder- for me the bigger bays is a work bag- and adore the plum purse- congrats on some great buys and welcome to the mad worlf of Mulberry!!

I feel the same way about the full-size bays. I love it but I have a Longchamp bag that I use faithfully for carrying papers and such. I adore the style but I don't think I would get to use it much. This version is a perfect everyday bag.

Any advice on what I should carry in this pouch? It's quite large but pretty slim-- I don't want to stretch it.

And I can see how people get addicted to Mulberry...
