THAT DARN MULBERRY
I just can't get you out of my head!
No, I don’t make a habit of taking pictures of bags in shops or me carrying bags that still belong to the shop; these shots were taken at the exclusive (well they say exclusive, anyone could buy a ticket) Harvey Nichols A/W 2013 Fashion Show & Soiree that I attended this week.
Since clapping my eyes on this Berry, I can’t stop thinking about it; I feel miserable that it continues to reside on the Harvey Nichols shelf instead of hanging in my wardrobe closet! Do you know what else I can’t get out of my head? This bag really is nothing special for the price of £895; take the Mulberry emblem off and it could quite easily be mistaken for a Zara bag, yet if I spotted it in Zara, the likelihood is I wouldn't be lusting after it or writing about it right now, in fact I probably wouldn't even buy it! It’s that classic case of: the more expensive an item, the more coveted that item is. Is there a name for this ‘condition’ apart from stupid and pretentious? It’s times like this when I consider whether I should buy a pet or have a baby or find a husband so that all these immaterial things I’m lusting after no longer occupy my mind; did anyone see the Sex And The City episode where Carrie lost her Manolo Blahniks at her friend's house party? – hhhhmm, anyways………
THE FASHION SHOW
I’d love to say that the catwalk snaps below were taken by me at New York Fashion Week, but I’m afraid I had to make do with a 20-minute drive from my home to Birmingham’s prestigious Mailbox where a selection of Harvey Nichols’ key looks from the Autumn/Winter 2013 collections were being showcased to the fashion conscious and style aware................ a girl can dream, right!
