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 – MaryΒ  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… Β£2!! Everything was Β£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.

      Thank you Michelle! And sure, it’s the Shepton Mallet factory shop, in Somerset! Maybe you might be near it? There are 4 I think, all over England, so you might be closest to another one!

      Thank you so much kalpana! You are very kind! And ok, I will do an outfit with the Oak Lily as soon as I can! I plan on wearing it soon, I have just been waiting for the really strong leather smell to go away a bit, ha ha! A big hug from England back!

    Didn’t you own a Lulu Guinness as well? Anyway, amazing collection! So jealous of your Mulberry bags! xx

    • March 15, 2012 / 5:40 pm

      I own a cosmetic bag from Lulu Guinness and a couple of umbrellas. I did buy one of their bags online, the Annabelle, but it was too heavy for me so I returned it.

      • March 15, 2012 / 5:45 pm

        Aah, okay! I thought you owned a lips clutch. Must’ve got that wrong, sorry.

        • March 15, 2012 / 6:22 pm

          Oh I wish I did! I find them too expensive for just a little clutch though, but I adore the crystal ones!

          • March 15, 2012 / 7:02 pm

            Yeah, I know what you mean. I can’t resist though, I’m going to get one in 3 weeks, as soon as I’m back in London.. but a snakeskin lips clutch, not a crystal one, because they really are too expensive!

            • March 15, 2012 / 7:05 pm

              The snake print ones are pretty! I like how they are like foil! I would love to see which one you get!

              • March 15, 2012 / 7:17 pm

                I haven’t quite decided yet, but it’s either the vintage red, the pink or the lipstick red one. I hope the lovely shop assistants will be able to help me with my decision. I’ll do a blog post on it after I bought it, in April.

                • March 15, 2012 / 7:29 pm

                  My vote would be pink, but then vintage red is more classic I think, it is a tough choice! I’m sure they will help you, the Lulu team are lovely and Lulu herself is amazing!

                  • March 15, 2012 / 7:33 pm

                    I’m sure they will. They’re always amazing at the Ellis Street shop! Unfortunately I haven’t met Lulu herself yet, and can’t make it to the Press Day in April either, which I’m really sad about.

                    • March 15, 2012 / 7:36 pm

                      Oh I may have seen you there! I’m going to it! Last time I was 20 minutes too late to meet Lulu, she had gone for lunch and gone for the day! Ugh! I watch her on QVC all the time though! Do you?

                    • March 15, 2012 / 7:59 pm

                      Yes, she’s on QVC with Donna (presenter) very often, who lives in my neighbourhood in North London! I watch her on QVC all the time (Lulu Guinness, not Donna). It’s like a curse though, the Lulu press day is only 2 days before I’m back in London next month. The one in October was also only a day before I came back from a trip to Germany!

                    • March 15, 2012 / 9:04 pm

                      Oh no!!!! That’s such bad luck! I’m not London based, I’m sure you know, so I travel up for the press days, I usually have to make appointments for some so they fit in. I’m sure you can email the team and set up a non press day appointment! They said I could if I needed to, maybe you could head to their office when you are back?

  19. March 15, 2012 / 9:34 pm

    You mean for a preview of the AW12 collection? I didn’t know they do that; would be soooo fantastic! I’ll definitely email them, thanks so so much!

    • March 15, 2012 / 10:50 pm

      Yeah! If you have a good blog they will probably be up for it! No harm in trying right! They are located East I think, not sure where you are, so hopefully it’s not too far!

      • March 16, 2012 / 4:51 pm

        Lulu’s press officer just replied to my e-mail and made an appointment with me. Thank you so much again! πŸ˜‰ xx

        • March 16, 2012 / 5:25 pm

          Yay! πŸ˜€ How exciting! And no problem, I’m glad I could help! When are you going?
