Essential: Mulberry Tillie Bag

This to all women who have purchased a Bayswater, I am sorry to say that those clever people at Mulberry may have just created a contender for the most 'commonly known and talked about British designer bag of all time.'

Don't get me wrong, the Alexa's were cute.  But to me, they a little bit too hippy and folkish for me and I couldn't see it fitting well with my wardrobe which is more tailored and refined. Also, it vaguely reminded me of the 2004 Balenciaga rampage - and when Paris Hilton and Jordan own them, it's time to let go. 

Its wrong on so many levels, it's £812, it's a satchel, it isn't sure if it's sharp and sophisticated, or soft and subdued.  But, it's beautiful and I need it in my life - and I think I'd be a better person if I owned one.  I'd have to physically restrain myself from buying the leopard print version - as it's so cool - because it won't last as long. Olivia Palermo was glued to her one last week at LFW, quite understandably. 

And just when I had mentally ruled it out in my head a real possibility, NetaPorter goes and puts a 'how to wear the Tillie' thing on their site.  Gah, it goes with everything!  This makes the walk to work a whole new level of torture, I pass 3 Mulberry stores.  Saying that, when I'm on my way to New York I could get 20% off in duty free... Maybe it's destiny...
