Mul..buy-it?

I woke up Sunday morning....prolly still a tad tipsy from the night before, saw my phone all lit up and wham a "Mulberry for Target' reminder was going off!! I smartly (is that even a word?) set myself a reminder, so I wouldn't forget!!! (There's a college education hard at work for ya! setting the reminder, not the lack of spelling skillz)

Any who...back to the topic at hand. I sat up, then quickly realized I needed to lay back down for a bit! So I decided to see what was happening in the world of twitter...only to find out from a lot of the people I follow most styles of the Mulberry bags were already sold out online! Phooey! Did I miss my chance??? Humm.

A couple hours, a few bottles of water, a few stares at the Chicago marathoners running away down the block....I dragged myself to the car - for a necessary Target run! (Beyond Mulberry we needed hangover snacks and TP! which totally justified the trip to my aching head!)

I lucked out! After an hour of marathon related traffic, yes an hour to go probably 1.5 miles, I made it and I lucked out!

I got the one I wanted! I don't love nearly as much as I love my Tucker pieces (quality seems a bit iffy), but I didn't want to miss out and not purchase anything - like I didn't with Rodarte or Cynthia Vincent or.... shoot whats his name. But I really like the lines and and the style and that is what draws me to most of the bags I own. Will be taking it for a test drive soon, and will be sure to share!

Mine is the bottom left corner one. A black cross-body bag. Did you get one??? Tweetland had people telling yes's and no's...what was your outcome? Which did you choose????

  1. Can I tell you how much I love a girl who can rock a Target bag with a pair of Prada boots? You are the perfect balance of savvy and luxury.

  4. I stopped by one Target and found two bags the pink leopard (in the middle) and a small denim one (like the top right). I was all set to buy the pink leopard for something a little different in my collection, but I just wasn't feeling it for some reason and I normally buy at least one piece from each Target designer collection. I think it is probably because I have my mind set on getting a real deal Mulberry next year, so anything else just won't due. I'm being snobby that way, lol.

    That black crossbody is perfect for carrying on the weekends. Plus it is one of the cuter ones.
