Conversion-ist - yes, it's that Alexa again...

What else could I possibly talk about regarding the Alexa..? I know: the outside! Somebody asked me to do a quick how-to on Alexa-strap-conversion. So, here it is...

Baby-Bag and Beyond

Thinking about whether you could get away with acquiring a new (or pre-loved) Mulberry and passing it off using it as a baby bag? Well, I've put my work horse, a black Soft Buffalo Regular Alexa, to the test. See how I got on!

With a Little Help from SAMORGA

The Mulberry Alexa is notoriously slouchy - in fact, that's why so many people like it. It gives it this real boho/rock chick/ask if I care feel and means it's a bag that takes you from work to play effortlessly. However, it also means that if it's not very full, it's rather like a fabric bag and your items tumble all over each other. 

This is were the lovely people from SAMORGA come in. Their bag inserts do not only provide different pockets for all your bits and bobs but the fairly rigid felt they are made from, give your bag structure and rigidity. So, with much further ado, here a video on receiving my SAMORGA insert for my Mulberry Alexa and having a first play.

Mulberry again - Lexie to the Rescue

The Mulberry Alexa is my daily go-to bag. Its long strap means I can wear it cross-body, run for the train or after my 2-year-old and get to whatever I'm carrying really quickly. I own one in black (that's the one that gets lugged around almost every day), in oak (that on has been asleep tucked away and for a while) and have recently acquired a mini-sized one in cabbage green. I have yet to test-drive that one properly.

Anyway, without much further ado, a quite hasty (and coughy) review. Let me know what you think!

Mulberry - Some Mini Vintage...

I've been chopping and changing my handbag collection (the fact that I call it a collection doesn't help) and I have found some video reviews online - but thought, there's always room for more. ;)

So with very few (written!) words, here is my first one focusing on that little Mulberry vintage gem, the Blenheim - also known as Baby Roxanne. 

Let me know what you think! :)

Anybody who has been following (anybody there?) and most people who know me(especially Mr G) will be able to certify that when I get interested in something I tend to get quite obsessed. I go to the nth degree to research said subject, and spend most of my free time on it.

There was my Friends phase when I was watching Friends repeatedly on VHS (!) until the tape was worn out.

My "knitting phase" when I bought enough yarn, books, knitting needles and various other bits and related bobs to kit out any knit-manic granny. 

My blogging phase, when I re-branded this blog to Wish and Wear and wrote about anything fashion I could think of.

My "pregnancy phase" when I was watching every tv program even remotely related to pregnancy/giving birth and read every blog and book I could get my hands on.

Dto. "babies" once little M had arrived.

And many more.

So what am I doing at the moment (apart from work and normal day to day life)? Right now it’s two things: I want a(nother) Mulberry bag. Either a Bayswater or a Bayswater Pocket or a Bayswater Double Zip. Dithering between those models for reasons I am not going to expand on here.  A lovely Bayswater Double Zip, please.

The other thing is eBay.

I have always been a bit obsessed with the idea of a well curated wardrobe. With well curated I don’t just mean “lots of nice stuff” but also:

-          Stuff I wear

-          Good quality stuff
-          Nothing I don’t ever wear
-          very few things I seldom wear
So a wardrobe overflowing with everything but the above just won’t cut it.
So along with the thought of wanting to raise some fund for my next Mulberry obsession, I also want to get rid of stuff that gathers dust.

Only in the meantime I came across said Mulberry model on eBay and bought it. After much dithering about which colour to chose. And now that I see it in person- I'm not sure about the colour. It is rather lovely but I am just not sure it's "me":

So my plan is to re-sell it and hopefully find one where I will be sure.

I know. *sigh*

Just to say...

...that I'm still alive.

No, I didn't fall off the planet or move into a cave on the edge of civilisation where there's no Internet.

What happened was that I hadn't been feeling great when I had been writing the last few posts. And then I found out I was pregnant. One day after my last post. 

I neither wanted to write on here that I was, nor did I not want to write about it as it was just such a huge thing. Unplanned. Total shock. But the best thing ever.

Little M was born in November 2012 and since then my entire life seems to have been consumed by either being his mum or keeping the other bits of my life going. buying/browsing for clothes became a rare treat. Writing about it nonexistent.

But lots of stuff happened along the way. Lots of stuff I would happily have shared. So I am thinking I might pick up this blog again and make it a mixture of stuff that happened, stuff thats happening now, stuff I love, stuff I need to figure out. And maybe write some longer sentences.

Blue & Neutrals

I love this Peter Pilotto top and as much as I want to clash it, it think it should be the centre piece...

You know what - just realized I paired this Acne jacket with it before - must be something right about it then. ;)
