Made In England

If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I am now officially a university graduate. I wanted to get myself something to celebrate and is there any better way to end a year in England than to treat yourself to some Mulberry goodies? I don't think so! It just happened that the factory shop was on my way and after reading about it online, I was more than curious to check what it was about. They actually had a lot of stock, including some past season items, but also some more recent ones although they didn't have any Tillie for me to grab. Smaller items were up to 30% off, whereas bags were about 15% off. The only thing that was heavily discounted was the damaged section, but unfortunately nothing really caught my eye. I would still recommend you go, if only to get some delicious cake from their cute little café.

The first thing I picked up was a small Concertina purse. I absolutely love the gold hardware, and although it doesn't have any card slots, it is actually really roomy. I got it to use when I go out since it is so small, it fits in all my clutches and doesn't look bulky at all. I also bought a Long Locked Purse for my sister, but I gave it to her later that day, so I don't have any pictures of it.

My next purchase was a leopard Mitzy pouch in the colour Grape. I've been wanting it for ages, so I was so excited to see they had it. The leather is so nice and thick, and the colour really makes it stand out.
