Those buggers at Peony and Moore have brought out a new Lucia!!!
Never mind colour! I can't even decide between the Lucia OR the mariella??? I love the shape/pockets on the lucia...but I love love the simplicity of the mariella?? (I have last seasons evelina in red...)
TattyDevine, would you mind if I very briefly gatecrash your thread? To you and any others on here:
Love the tan Lucia, but also really like the pink Mariella Bottles mentioned. We have to buy our boss something for a big anniversary thing at work. She's around 60, stylish and loves bright colours. E.g. she often wear a bright pink (sounds horrid, but actually beautiful) jacket over black work dress etc. We've got a pool of £250. My question: As a "forever" kind of gift, would you think it is better to go with the safer tan option, or just go with the pink Mariella as it's very much her, if that makes any sense? Really sorry to ask on here, but you lot seemed to know exactly what you're talking about! Thanks.
I have the Lucia in grey and love it!!- not just the colour but the bag itself is so ' right for everything'!! If you want a 'forever' kind of gift the Lucia is it ! - honestly - in any colour - it is such a versatile bag and is so ageless - looks great and on trend on older ladies and very stylish and easy on younger models! - - maybe the darker colour for older and the lighter colours for younger ?? ( maybe not!!) -- but have to say I am lusting after this new one now ---- how can I justify two?? - want it -want it - want it - - - - - -! - and I will - - - - somehow !
Gift vouchers would be good and sensible, but the majority feeling was for an actual gift, so I'd would need to pick something. But good point, she can always exchange it, can't she? Ok thank you, I'll go ahead and order that one.
I reckon pink mariella for your boss. I always think the beauty of a gift is something you wouldn't necessarily spend alot of money on yourself? Tan is very versatile all rounder which alot of people own...but that stunning pink mariella is a real spoil and utterly beautiful!!
I look on bags now as an investment and choose good quality ones that last more than a season ( but could never justify Mulberry prices) - my Evelina I bought from them last year is just like new still - and I am quite hard on bags --
I agree tatty, I think these bags are how Mulberry used to be, the leather is really gorgeous and soft and smells like leather should. I have bought Mulberry in the past and to be honest I am now a convert to peony & moore...plus you can buy 3 for the price of 1. I like that!
