The Whistles link is saying not found. What is the name of the bag?

What colour Lily?

TheImprobableGirl Thu 26-May-16 07:23:55

Logically the whistles bag (although I can't get to it through that link I know the one you mean) as it is so much cheaper and you can buy two etc....

But my heart is with the mulberry grin if you can afford...

That first link doesn't work for me. I'm not keen on the chain strap of the mulberry one (sorry if the whistles bag has one too!).

Pisssssedofff Thu 26-May-16 07:27:31

I just bought a whistles one yesterday after much deliberation. For £150 you can't get much better quality

How strange, they both work for me, but I'll try again

I have whistles bags and I love them, this is for a significant celebration and I know it sounds very materialistic but mulberry bags give me so much pleasure!

It is a massive amount of money on a teeny tiny bag, is it a 'classic' though, like the Bayswater? I don't want it to become old hat. I won't be buying another one in a looooooong time!

Thanks v much

Did you get the 20% off and which one did you buy?

PurpleDaisies Thu 26-May-16 07:41:07

Nope-still not working for me.

I googled the style name and again wasn't keen on the chain strap so I'm not sure I'm the best to comment! £350 vs £76... I'd go for the whistles one.

IWantToLiveInPawnee Thu 26-May-16 07:42:51

Sorry about the links! Thanks for googling. I need opinions as I am terrible at making decisions.....

The tan mini lily is tiny. I bought and returned it for the next size up as it could just fit a small purse and keys but not my phone.

Sorry whilst I usually love Mulberry I think this one looks cheap. Can't see Whistles one.

QueenJuggler Thu 26-May-16 08:16:38

OP the link isn't working because you keep linking to your shopping basket. You need to link to the actual product page.

PurpleDaisies Thu 26-May-16 08:21:51

I tried that too queen... It's the whistles site.

Costacoffeeplease Thu 26-May-16 08:22:00

I'm not keen on chains, and even though it's mulberry, it looks quite cheap in that photo, I can't see the whistles one

wallybantersjunkbox Thu 26-May-16 08:22:22

I can see both.

Both nice, but the fastenings on the Mulberry and the colour choice give it the edge. Plus it's difficult to see the leather quality but I'm sure both are good.

But Mulberry leather....gah! Even now 11years later my Mulberry bowling bag still smells awesome.

Just a shame DS filled it with play dough so the bottom is one big grease stain. hmm

IWantToLiveInPawnee Thu 26-May-16 08:33:18

last try!

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Thu 26-May-16 08:35:29

I don't like either of them tbh. Sorry!

PurpleDaisies Thu 26-May-16 08:36:10

The link worked!

IWantToLiveInPawnee Thu 26-May-16 09:19:49

Bit of a curve ball, but what about this one?

http://www.whistles.com/women/accessories/bags/baker-seam-saddle-bag-21579.html?dwvarbaker-seam-saddle-bag-21579color=Tan#start=1

PurpleDaisies Thu 26-May-16 09:21:24

That gets my vote. Lovely.

SecretSpy Thu 26-May-16 09:24:37

Last one is nicer

Pisssssedofff Thu 26-May-16 09:40:08

Baker one is a very different bag and fashionable, you won't be wearing that next year. Personally I'd get the YSL version it's cute, big enough and not a mulberry

Pisssssedofff Thu 26-May-16 09:41:43

Sorry I did get 20% off but mine was a different bag, my bad and it's going back if I win a Boden one on eBay.

puglife15 Thu 26-May-16 09:58:20

I like the whistles saddle bag best. Looks the most classy out of the three and I think it's a fairly classic style too. I think chain bags work better for evening.

Personally, and this might be controversial, but Mulberry to me is a bit obvious, unimaginative, and "default designer bag". Some are nicely made, simple designs but generally i find them all a bit meh. And for £££ i want more than meh!
