Lulu Guinness Autumn/Winter 2012 Press Day

I attended the Lulu Guinness Autumn/Winter 2012 press day at the beginning of this month in London (along with a few others) and these are the photos of the collection. I haven’t included all of the pieces, but I have included most of them and my favourites. Quite a few items have transitioned into the new season collection from last season, like the Lips clutches, the phonebox phone holder and a few other things, as they seem to be great sellers.

Like normal, I love the studded, crystalised and floral print Lips clutches, the phonebox phone holder, the Lulu profile head pieces, the lips purses and some of the British inspired bags and purses. The tea cups and macaroon stand was also so pretty! I couldn’t resist taking a photo of that! I think it looks adorable and suits the Lulu Guinness brand perfectly! There are quite a few photos in this post, check them out and let me know what you like the most! Hopefully you love Lulu Guinness like I do! I will be posting the new Nicholas Kirkwood collection next week too!

Falling For Blossom From Marc By Marc Jacobs

I first saw the Marc by Marc Jacobs Karlie clutch in Blossom last year as a pre-order on Luisaviaroma. I instantly fell in love with it then because the Karlie is one of my favourites (I have it in Dandelion). I was recently browsing Shopbop, like I do almost every day, and all of the new Blossom bags are out!

I’ve featured my favourites here, the Lil Ukita (above), the Karlie (image 2), the Phone Wallet (image 3) and the Fold Over Purse (image 4) and I am currently saving up for one! Pink is my all time favourite colour and I think the Karlie is the one I want. I do love the Lil Ukita, but it seems like it’s just too big for me. The Phone Wallet is also really cool, I’ve been seeing a lot of them about lately, but I just couldn’t justify the price on it. If only I had tonnes of money! All of these bags and more Blossom styles are available on Shopbop.com where I got these images.

My New Marc by Marc Jacobs Bars & Bells Bag in Scarlet

You may have remembered (when I showed my bag collection to you here) that I mentioned there was a Marc by Marc Jacobs bag that had caught my eye and I planned to buy. This is it! It’s the Marc by Marc Jacobs Bars & Bells Cross Body Bag in Scarlet. I have always been looking for the perfect red bag, since I didn’t own any shade of red in a bag at all, and I think this is it! I usually like to go for the deeper reds, the more richer and classier colours, but I fell in love with this bag. The colour reminds me a lot of poppies, but it’s a little more red since poppies have an orange undertone to them and this bag doesn’t.

It’s a little bigger than the usual size I go for, which is what I wanted as sometimes I do need a bigger bag, but it’s not too big and it’s not heavy at all! I’m no good with heavy bags! I love its simplicity, there is minimal hardware and the closure is magnetic. It’s adorable! Plus it has a super fun lining! Much more bright than my other Marc by Marc Jacobs bags! I bought it from Shopbop.com here as that’s the only place that stocks it at the moment. I looked for it everywhere else and couldn’t find it anywhere! That’s ok though since I adore Shopbop! It comes in Navy and a colour block Black and White too. I can’t wait to wear it soon and show you in an outfit post! What do you think of it?

My Bag Collection

As promised here is my bag collection to celebrate my blogs 2nd birthday which was on 10th March 2012. It took me a while to do these photos because I didn’t realise how many bags I had! I think I might have too many actually! I put them in two different piles, one being non designer bags (which make up most of my collection) and the other is my designer bags. I have also included some close up photos of all of the bags in this post too.

Above photo from left to right is:
1st row – River Island, Topshop, River Island, Topshop.
2nd row – Topshop, ASOS, River Island, Topshop, River Island.
3rd row – Peruna, Topshop, Topshop, ASOS, Topshop.
4th row – Urban Outfitters, River Island, ASOS, FCUK, Topshop.
5th row – Mary  Frances, Mary Frances and AVON.

I realised after making this post that I seem to love Topshop and River Island bags. They do make up most of my collection because I think they are cute and they are not expensive either!

Now on to my designer bags (below), which I have collected 7 over the past couple of years now. The best part is I never paid the retail amount for any of them except my Mulberry Pink Denim Lily and the MbMJ Dandelion Karlie. The Mulberry one I saved for months for! I am going to list these individually and where I got them from.

Top left is my Marc Jacobs Bruna. I got this from The Outnet back in 2010 with 70% off the retail price!

Top right is my Marc Jacobs Sonic Pouch. I got this also from The Outnet when they had their birthday sale. The most amazing part is I got it for only… £2!! Everything was £2 in their birthday sale so I was so excited to snap it up.

Bottom left is my Mulberry Oak Lily. I got this from an authentic seller on eBay for a good deal! I haven’t yet shared this one with you either.

Middle is my Mulberry Sparkle Tweed Alexa. I got this one from the Mulberry Factory Shop last summer at 70% off the retail price too.

Middle right is my Marc by Marc Jacobs Berry Haze Percy. I bought this from Shopbop with a 20% off code.

Bottom middle is my Marc by Marc Jacobs Dandelion Karlie. I bought this at the beginning of last year from Net-A-Porter. I fell in love with it and it has been one of my most used bags.

Bottom right is my Mulberry Candy Pink Quilted Denim Lily. I bought this from the Mulberry website not long ago and I am obsessed with it! I am so glad I saved for it!

So this is how my bag collection currently stands! I have tonnes and unfortunately there are more that I want, but those have to wait until I have saved. I think I have saved enough for another Marc by Marc Jacobs bag I want. It’s not too expensive, so it’s definitely manageable soon! The only other expensive one I want is the Mulberry Taylor in Deer Brown. I am waiting for that to appear at the Mulberry Factory Shop in a few months so I can get it really cheap! Hopefully it does! What do you think of the collection? Be sure to click this post to see all of the photos.

My New Mulberry Candy Pink Quilted Denim Lily

You might remember that I fell in love with this bag, the Mulberry Candy Pink Quilted Denim Lily, back in September 2011 when I saw it on Eliza Doolittle, which I then made a post about in October (here). This bag literally combines everything I love! Denim, pink, denim, a small bag, pink, denim, cross body bag, pink, denim… You get my drift!

Denim is my favourite fabric, as you know since I live in jeans, and making it pink and in my favourite Mulberry bag, the Lily, it’s just perfect! Since I saw it, I started saving because I knew I would really want it. Also it helps since it’s not made of leather, so I knew it would be cheaper than most Mulberry bags I can’t afford and as a plus it doesn’t have the potent leather smell! I am literally in love with this bag and I couldn’t wait to share it with you all! Also, the modelled photos are from an outfit I will be posting soon! What do you think of it?

Eliza Doolittle’s Mulberry Candy Pink Quilted Denim Lily

I am literally obsessed with Mulberry’s newest Candy Pink Quilted Dye Denim Lily bag. I first saw it on Eliza Doolittle at the Mulberry Spring/Summer 2012 fashion show in London last month. I have since been trying to figure out what the fabric and colour was and I now know! I am so happy that it’s denim! You all know I am denim obsessed and having a bag in denim, let alone pink denim, just makes me so excited! The Lily is also the perfect size for me and the fact that it’s not leather, should make it cheaper! I am hoping anyway! This bag is from the SS12 pre-collection, so I am hoping it will be available next month! I’m already saving my money for it! I am in love! Eliza is so lucky to have it early! What do you think of it?

My New Marc By Marc Jacobs Classic Q Percy In Berry Haze

I’m excited to share with you my new bag! It’s the Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Percy in Berry Haze! As you know, berry is my favourite colour this season and I think everything looks amazing in it, it’s become sort of an obsession! I saw this shade in the Karlie on Net-A-Porter but I wasn’t fond of the gold chain with the berry. Then I found the Berry Haze Percy on Shopbop, a lot cheaper too, and I thought it was perfect!

I think the Percy is a great little small bag, it holds all your important things, it’s not heavy and it’s really durable. I love it! I wasn’t sure on the top of it at first though, it’s very straight and I thought it looked unfinished but I found once it’s packed out it looks much better. I kind of prefer the colour of it on the Shopbop website as it’s ‘more berry like’ but I am happy with the colour. My photos are pretty much the exact shade of it, it’s more purple than pink. It’s adorable though! I think it will be making quite a few appearances on my blog!

My Wishful Thinking Bag Wish List

Proenza Schouler Raspberry Large Suede Satchel.

I thought about making a post about the bags that I come across while browsing online. I fall in love with them but I can never afford them unfortunately. My favourite at the moment is the Proenza Schouler one above, purely because of the colour. If it was a smaller bag then it would be perfect! I love the berry/raspberry tone to it. It’s so beautiful! I also love the new quilted Mulberry Alexa’s! I think the quilting adds more of a classiness to them. And of course I love the classics like the Alexander Wang Rocco, the taupe suede Balenciaga, the Oak Mulberry Bayswater, more Marc Jacobs… and then I dream about the brightly coloured bags which would add such a pop to my outfits. Which bags are you wishing for but can’t get?
