I find it hard to believe that this post hasn’t yet been featured.
It seems to be the bloggy-norm that whenever you find yourself with a new piece of arm candy, a ‘what’s in my bag’ post must follow and since I now have my dream bag, the one I want to spend the rest of my life with, it is time to introduce you all.
After some very intricate research and over four years worth of thought, I decided that I was going to purchase a Mulberry bag as a treat to myself for landing a role in London and passing my second year of university.
At first, I was sure that a brand new Bayswater was going to be the one however, my long standing love affair with somebody named Roxanne prevented me from handing over a very hefty large amount of cash in John Lewis.
I have loved the Roxanne bags ever since I was a waitress in my local greasy spoon and a very wealthy customer had one on the crook of her arm, a real one.
Back in 2004 these bags were the bags to be seen with and will go down in history as one of the most iconic handbags of all time.
Unfortunately Roxanne isn’t made anymore and hasn’t been around for a long time but I do believe that she is timeless, and she wears better with age.
I must warn you that because of this bags rarity, there are a lot of fakes on the internet and some fantastic fakes at that.
I bought my Roxanne online from a reputable lady who had all of the original proof of purchase receipts, she had been the owner of this back for some 10 years and knew all of it’s history, every scuff and stain could be explained.
I did a lot of research into the type of leather, the distinctive features and the ways to spot a fake Roxanne before I bought it and I can safely say that my Roxanne is 100% genuine, 2004, darwin leather, Mulberry bag.
So onto what is inside it..
Day to day I haul around a whole host of things as you can see, some of the items are obvious as to where they are from however, my Oyster card holder is from Paperchase, my sunglasses are Primark as is my umbrella, mirror and pencil case and my notepad is from TK Maxx.
What’s in your bag?
