Mulberry Bayswater Silky Snake Bag. (And Mr Bear.)

In case you haven’t heard me harping on: this is my latest luxury acquisition. The Mulberry Bayswater in Silky Snake Print. A timeless classic with a modern, unusual twist and I am absolutely over the moon with it! Mulberry have got things just right with the Bayswater style, which is probably why it’s a constant bestseller – though you can’t really use it as a shoulder bag, it looks chic and sophisticated slung into the crook of your arm and makes you feel extremely ladylike!

I have had numerous envious stares over the past few days – I think that the snakeskin effect must make this look far more expensive than it actually is. I mean, it is expensive, but it’s not in the realm of some of the more unusual finishes. It was £950, but you can find it in the sale for £760 now (ain’t that always the way?!).

I got mine from Lux in Bath – Rach at Lux is a very good friend of mine and she always has the pick of the best shoes and bags! She has just started her summer sale, and though there’s no online shop you can check out her Facebook Page or get the shop details on the website here.

I’m building up a collection of Mulberry bags – some are far more “successful” than others with regards to the amount that I use them, but all have been brilliant investments. I still regularly use my Phoebe bag that I got about eight years ago! I might do a “collection” video soon – it has been requested. In the meantime, you can see my new bag “in the flesh” alongside the delectable Mr Bear in the vlog below!

  1. Wow, great bag, Ruth. Very you. Always more fun when you’ve been lusting after something for ages. Even the gorgeous Mr. Bear can’t eclipse a new Bayswater. And it is definitely sunny today so you can give it its first outing!

    • It had it’s first outing yesterday! I was so precious over it…. I nearly had a heart attack when I thought it was about to rain! x

  2. Great bag! What leather jacket are you wearing? Love it!

  3. Beautiful. Such a chic bag. I think this color will go well with a lot of outits.
    I do quite the same with my Miu Miu bags -I purchase one about once a year, usually during the sales, and ’til now I’ve collected five! And I love them all, still rocking the first one which was from 2007!
    (interesting, english girl, english brand; italian girl, italian brand: in the deep, we all are kind of patriotic ;-)

    • @Martina oh I used to LOVE Miu Miu bags, I have two. Then they got so expensive all of a sudden! I must look in the sales and see what they have! x

  4. I’ wondering if a french girl is now going to tell us in a comment about her collection of -maybe- Celine, or, -if she’s very lucky- Hermes!
    Lol

  5. oh wow. this is amazing. can’t wait until the day when i can spend my hard earned cash on one of these babies!

    • Thanks Lorna! Hey, I’m having to remove your outbound links otherwise my security stops you posting. It’s fine to do one or two, but you’re placing a link in every comment and getting blocked by the server! x

  6. Great purchases Ruth – I’d also love to see a video on your Mulberry collection. I have an assortment of bags and other leather goods from Mulberry and definitely agree that the leather gets better with age. My husband gifted me the Long Locked Purse years ago and it’s still looking great after a significant amount of daily use!

  7. Beautiful bag and wonderful color Ruth.
    I wanted to get one as well but they are too expensive for my budget :(
    I love Marc By Marc Jacobs and I adore Rebecca Minkoff!!!!I think that the price is more affordable ;)
    I hope one day I can get Mulberry as well :)

  8. two words: bag envy.

  9. Love the bag, it looks soooooo wonderful. And Mr. Bear is like a little toy, I bet he loves to snuggle :)

  10. I picked up the Bayswater in fudge colour in the mulberry sale….so pleased with it!
