My bays is oak, my alexa is oak and my mitzy is oak, can you see a patern emerging!!!!!!!. I love oak, it goes with everything. Its classy and easy on the eye. I look out for jl stock . Im hoping they are going to sell the polly or the taylor. I am not a lover of the daria (no offense). Hopefully though jl will get the colours you like in the autumn stock.
No offence either, but I really don't get the Daria. I don't like lots of 'gold' metalware at best of times but I really don't understand why people would want to pay a lot have a handbag with a large shiny gold disc with a mulberry tree on it. For that sort of money, I'd want something subtly classy.
But we all have different tastes and, if people love them and get lots of pleasure from them, then go for it. Must admit I'm a pretty extreme 'silver not gold (unless it's very pale/distressed )person' - just my personal taste (and colouring).
You cant go wrong with a bays. They will always keep their value. They are classy and gorg. Yummy choc sounds delightful. I have the oak printed bays and black spongy bays. I dont usually do black bags but i made an exception for the bays.
You can never have too much of a good thing . However i was looking at buying the chocolate alexa (i have the oak) and yet i couldnt justify it and i dont love it enough and yet i was happy enough to by bays no 2. The chocoate bays is gorg though, i would definately go for it.
I can't get an alexa. I'm just not wiling to spend that much money on something named after a T4 presenter. I actually like the bag and might well have got it, but being called Alexa and knowing who it's after has ruined it for me. I feel it'll really date because it's named after her, let's be honest, she is no Jane birkin!
