I rewarded myself with a little Mulberry

I don’t know if you have noticed but I have been featuring quite a few bags from Mulberry lately. I’ve always loved Mulberry, but since it’s one of those brands that hasn’t been very visible here in the US until recently, I had sort of forgotten it. I used to work in a Mulberry Shop in Helsinki managing their computerized inventory system, which was very fancy back in the early 90’s..

Anyways.. On my last trip to Finland I stopped at the Mulberry Shop at the airport on my way out. The trip was my media tour, which I sort of have failed to even write a post about because quite frankly I feel very weird about writing about being on a media tour and being interviewed on TV, radio and magazines. It was really awesome though, but after being interviewed so many times within 4 days of time in several cities and the jet lag on the top, I was absolutely beat. I was walking around the Helsinki-Vantaa airport and the Mulberry Shop invited me to step in with all of this fall’s plum bags and accessories. The Daria clutch ($550) above and the Daria sleeve for Macbook ($550) below were speaking to me in a way that I haven’t been spoken to for a very long time.

One thing was for sure, I was not going to leave the store without buying anything. The smell of leather goods, and the softness to touch… I had almost forgotten what a brand new Mulberry feels like. I really fell in love with the fall’s trendy color plum, and ended up buying the Margaret Small Zip Around Purse. While the sense said that maybe I should take the black one to keep it long after plum isn’t trendy anymore, but no, I couldn’t resist it.

It felt so good to buy something to reward myself unexpectedly. And I absolutely love the little coin purse! It has two English bulldogs with cupcakes and teacups and crest with text “we believe in tea and cake”. I know – it’s so silly, yet I love it so much. Sometimes it is good to buy things just because they make you smile and happy. How ever silly it is.

    I blogged about it today :) Went to see it on Sunday and it is… horrible. What do you think? It really doesn’t look bad in the pictures online, and I was first excited – but it was pretty bad…

    I so know what you’re talking about!
    Few weeks ago I was at Macys just walking around and there it was, DKNY trench coat “calling” to me. I tried it on and just loved what I saw in the mirror, haven’t felt that good for a long time.
    Got a new best friend that day.

    Take care <3
