Just have to share with you all... It's been two years since I joined the Forum and I've made more Mulberry purchases than I care to remember (probably couldn't anyway! lol). I've tried nearly ever style that Mulberry made after the Congo/Tartan era and before the Alexa joined us. I've had twins and triplets in all the classic colours, and a few colourful bags that didn't last long. Recently I got pregnant and the hormones made me re-evaluate all the stuff I had accumulated. It was time to simplify my life and my handbag collection was first to take a hit. I've re-homed five bags recently (one has dug it's proverbial heels in and won't leave despite my attempts to kick it out!) and I suddenly have the core collection that I've been talking about for well over a year. Who made the cut, and why? - Black goatskin Bays (gorgeous & rare beast!) - Black wrinkled patent small Bays clutch (my only going-out bag for the very rare occasions when DH and I get a chance to treat ourselves) - Choc Darwin Effie (yummy choc Darwin!) - Oak Darwin Annie (lovely style to use and oak Darwin is just so beautiful) - Oak printed VT Ledbury (amazing symmetry on the print, lovely ladylike handheld bag to make me feel special) - Oak Kenya/Darwin Belle (loving the printed oak leather, this is perfect size for all I need to carry when I'm at the park with Miss M) - Ginger Darwin Emmy (ginger Darwin is my obsession and this bag is a stunning example) - Pewter Daria satchel (my cheapie bling bag that I absolutely LOVE) (I won't name the last one as I don't consider it part of my collection.) So, that's eight bags that get used on a regular basis and I'm loving it! I can finally say without any underlying doubt that I am happy with my collection as it is and there is (luckily) nothing I want from the new collection. Phew! Anyone else out there who has done similar recently?
