I've always wanted this bag. When I saw the price I thought "no way" and in the end I got an SBS which I ended up selling because it was too small but I liked the versatility of it, it just needed to be bigger! I've had an Antony too which I ended up selling. I'm a big fan of Mulberry but I've ended up selling every bag I've had. The only thing I haven't sold is my black purse (Congo I think?) which I also got from the outlet a couple of years back which I love! Anyway, I saw the bag in the sale and it was still too much. I considered using some of my savings but wondered if I'd still feel bad as my limit is usually £550 (my preowned SBS price). In the end my mum very kindly offered to pay some of it and I would pay the rest. I couldn't find this bag anywhere on eBay or any reseller sites and I could be waiting ages for it to show up, it wasn't even on mulberry.com. So I called the outlet near me to see if they had any in oxblood, a colour I've always loved, as I thought the black looked too formal and the oak would get dirty and I'd hate to worry about using it. The mini was definetly going to be too small and the regular was perfect. I've got alot of free space incase I need it.

Okay sorry for the essay but this is my HG bag and I figured there is no point settling for second best as you'll always wish you got what you wanted! Getting it definetly felt like I'd won the lottery. It definetly has the versatility I just couldn't find in any other mulberry bags. It's really comfy to wear as a backpack and as a shoulder bag. I much prefer the fabric straps as opposed to leather ones! 20170121_230224.jpeg 20170121_230235.jpeg 20170121_230326.jpeg

Congrats, make sure you keep the little buckle strap that holds the grab handles. I lost my cameo blue one and was quoted £45 plus vat!

Yay! You got her!

Beautiful colour, I can't put my Reg oxblood lily down as perfect for this time of year

For this size I'd get a Samorga liner to prevent sagging, will help keep shape and stop your belongings jumping around

Good idea [emoji106] I've always loved oxblood! It'll just have to be my all year round bag!

Must have fallen off one day when I was using, I hadn't realised.
Gutted, did you end up getting a new one? I wanted to buy one when I had my sbs because I thought they would be really useful but they wouldn't sell one to me!

I wanted to get one for my sbs and they wouldn't let me order one either. They said t would change the esthetics of the bag. :sad:
