New category from 1 January – Handbag of the Day

comerfordinsweden 015

From tomorrow I will be featuring one of my handbags every day. I can discuss where and why I bought it, what is good and what’s not about it. Please feel free to comment with questions or suggestions about what you would like more or less of.

Here is a rather old photo of two of my Mulberry bags. You can see from my phone that it must be about five years old. My handbags are both much more battered and beautiful now so I will feature them in the series.

  • To the left is a Mulberry Roxanne in Oak
  • To the right is a Mulberry Tooled Bayswater in Oak. Limited edition.
  • tissues
  • Energy bars in case I need to eat on the run
  • Keys on Oasis ‘diamond ring’ key rings
  • Leopard print mini Totes umbrella (in bag all the time)
  • Balenciaga coin purse in deep purple. I think the colour is ‘ink’
  • Palm Life Drive (I used PDAs instead of Filofaxes for about five years)
  • Brown leather Ramos pen holder
  • Mulberry Olive wallet
  • Mulberry Oak Makeup case (can also be used as a clutch bag)
  • Ramos business card holder in brown leather
  • Montblanc Meisterstuck fountain pen
  • Small green penknife ‘for the ladies’ – has a sewing kit, a mirror, a perfume bottle, tweezers, scissors plus all the usual doodads
  • Deoderant (this must have been taken in summer)
  • Skull mirror from Indiska – I love love love these
  • Sunglasses – Rayban in an Infinity case
  • Papers for work – all now carried in my Filofax
  • Muji pencil
  • Step counter – for work I do between 12000 and 25000 steps a day.
  • Have no idea about the cable tie!
