My Mulberry Medium Lily Handbag




For today’s blog post, I am going to be telling you all about one of my favourite ever high-end purchases and that is my stunning Mulberry Medium Lily handbag. I have had my eye on this handbag for the longest time and I am so happy that I finally have my hands on this little beauty. I know that this kind of post certainly won’t be for everybody because I know some people aren’t a fan of high-end purchases, but it is something that I personally like reading about and I know that there are other people out there that like the similar kind of things as me. So, I thought that I would share with you guys what I think about, what I paid and if I think it is worth the money.

Like I said before, I have wanted this bag for such a long time. It must be years since I first saw it and it has been on my wishlist ever since. One thing that put me off buying this Mulberry Lily handbag was the shade of the nude. I knew that I wanted this handbag in a nude shade because I don think that you can go wrong with having a good quality nude handbag in your collection because it is something that is very wearable.  But, a couple years ago Mulberry had the perfect shade of nude, then they sold out and the colour they replaced it with just wasn’t what I wanted. So, I waited it out and they finally came back out with a stunning nude and I snatched it up.

The other thing that put me off buying this handbag for the longest time was the price of it. I know that Mulberry are a high-end luxury brand, but this bag cost me £975 and that is the same price that I paid for my Louis Vuitton Neverful and my Mulberry Bayswater Satchel, and they are much larger and more wearable handbags. But, I thought about it and realised how much of an investment this handbag is and that I was going to be able to wear it year in and year out. Plus, with the likes of a Chanel bag increasing in price every single year, I wanted a great quality bag at a reasonable price.



The main reason why I went ahead and bought this handbag now was so that I could wear it on my sister’s wedding day which was last week. Obviously throughout the ceremony I didn’t have my handbag with me, but I did need something afterwards and this was the perfect bag. My dress was a light blush colour, so this matched perfectly. Plus, a nude handbag is something that always comes in handy and it is just a huge bonus when it is something as stunning as the Mulberry Medium Lily!

The best thing I think about this handbag other than how simply stunning it is, is the size of it. The normal size Lily handbag would have been too small for me because my iPhone 7 Plus barely fits into it, but the Medium size is just perfect. I can quite confidently use this on a daily basis because I can fit everything inside it that I need, including my iPhone, makeup and keys which is pretty much all I need!

One thing that I do want to talk about that I think is worth a little mention is that the strap is very comfortable to wear. I know that sometimes straps that have chains running through them can sometimes be uncomfortable, but this one as super comfortable even to wear on bare skin. I also think that the strap is nice and strong, which is something that I am looking for when I am paying nearly £1000 for a handbag.



Also, I really love the beautiful suede lining inside this handbag. I know that things like that are just a small touch, but I think it is the little things that makes it worth the money. I do just want to point out that there is no zip inside the handbag, but to me this isn’t a concern because when the flap is over, and the clasp is shut, the bag is nice and secure. Plus, the craftsmanship and quality of this handbag is incredibly beautiful, but again that is to be expected when you are spending this much on a Mulberry handbag.

I know that this post really won’t have been for everybody. By uploading this post, I am in no way wanting to show off or flaunt what I have. I know that I am incredibly lucky to afford these kinds of treats to myself. When I do spend my money on items like these, I like to make sure that they are classic items that are going to last me for a very long time and that is what this stunning Mulberry Medium Lily handbag is to me.

  5. I think Mulberry is such a classic brand and you can never go wrong with any of their items! They are the brand that will last you until the end of time because their styles will never go out of date, but they also will work perfectly with any of the current trends of the season. I haven't seen this style yet, but it looks like the perfect every day and evening bag! I'm sure you haven't stopped wearing it since you got it. I hope you had a lovely weekend!

  6. What a gorgeous colour! I don't own any designer handbags as I'm just quite clumsy and accident-prone so I don't trust myself haha. I do have a few nice mid-range ones from Kate Spade I wear a lot though :)
