Once upon a time I used to have a a yellow Mulberry mini Lily bag, this bag has found a new home Canada!!! ( I visit it often!!) As I am always on the look out for the perfect cross body bag I was delighted when I spotted this blue mini Lily in store the other day (House of Fraser Manchester) The detail on the chain straps is just gorgeous and the price is perfect. It easily takes cards, phone, keys and a lipstick, what more d you need!
It comes in many colours but these are my favourites:
Mulberry Mini Lily Neon Blue Classic Grain £350 here
Mulberry Mini Lily Aqua Green Classic Grain £350 here

Well it has been an interesting few days since I spoke to you last, I have been to Mulberry no less!! Not to buy a bag but at their invitation to see all of the new and exciting things that are happening.
It all started with a very packed train journey to Bristol and an over night stay in a nice hotel. It wasn’t a long journey from Bristol to the factory but it is another world. The Rookery is in beautiful surroundings, it is all green fields and sheep!!
The staff are wonderful and the atmosphere is one of excitement, everyone is looking forward to the marvellous things that new designer Johnny Coca is bringing. He joined in July 2015 so his influence is evident. I think we all loved what he did with accessories at Celine!! Did you see the Mulberry Autumn/Winter catwalk show in London? it was dark and sleek with a punk vibe. These are my favourite shots:
There are also gorgeous new bags on the way so be ready!! I have my eye on a couple!!!
Clifton in Polished Embossed Croc £945 here
I also had a lovely pressie a rather elegant burgundy note book all wrapped up beautifully. I carried it all the way home fully wrapped as I hate to spoil pretty wrappings!!
Friday was a crazy day in the shopping suite with three interesting customers, the first being a gentleman who was starting a new job.
He bought jackets, trousers, shirts and chelsea boots and left feeling very happy, the boots were a revelation which he kept thanking me for!
