Mulberry.. The closest I'll get!

'Obsessed' is an understatement when it comes to my feelings for handbags. For as long as I can remember I have wanted to be a proud owner of a Mulberry, admittedly, they are to die for! Once the Mulberry Alexa style, inspired by style icon Alexa Chung, was released, I knew that that was the one I needed in my life! 

At £925, I could not justify so much money on one bag and I would just have to continue the dream.. Until, whilst on holiday, I spotted a complete replica of my ideal piece of arm candy! If you have seen the real thing, I'm sure you will agree it's not far off and quite difficult to tell if it truly is a real or a fake..







It still set me back £160, but at almost one-sixth of the actual price, I could just not say no! The the tan coloured buffalo leather material is amazing quality and definitely guaranteed to last a lifetime. The detailing, down to the finest point, is as close as it can get to the real thing. 
As more of a 'satchel' style, it's very versatile, either used during the day, with the shoulder strap for a more casual look, or without, for a more sophisticated evening look. I'm pretty sure I'll never get bored of this handbag, I am very chuffed indeed!
