1/"Orla Kiely" or


MamaG Thu 12-Nov-09 18:22:03

I'm a bit "meh" about both tbh

HeadFairy Thu 12-Nov-09 18:23:06

I prefer the Mulberry one, lovely colour.

piratecat Thu 12-Nov-09 18:24:35

yeah , meh (copies mamag)

sorry neither takes my fancy, and they are so different in price and design it's hard to choose iyswim?

bigTillyMint Thu 12-Nov-09 18:25:30

I like them both, but would choose 1 as I like it better and it's loads cheaper grin

lou33 Thu 12-Nov-09 18:27:40

i prefer the orla kiely one, but tbh i wouldnt pay that much for either

dexter73 Thu 12-Nov-09 18:28:23

I like the expensive purple one!grin

AnnaSui Thu 12-Nov-09 18:30:36

I like them both equally so I'd buy the cheaper one. It's still not 'cheap'.

DoingTheBestICan Thu 12-Nov-09 18:36:17

Thanks,we live by a Mulberry outlet so i know the mulberry one is muych cheaper in there.

I like the Orla one but i am just wondering if the leather one will last longer?

They are both a lot of money but DH has said we are to treat ourselves this yr as for once we have some spare cash.

DoingTheBestICan Thu 12-Nov-09 18:36:48

Sorry that should say much cheaper not muych cheaper.

Blackduck Thu 12-Nov-09 18:43:55

How MUCH! Sorry wouldn't pay that and don't like either...

pointydogg Thu 12-Nov-09 18:46:08

prefer the mulberyy but it doesn't look worth the price tag

faustina Thu 12-Nov-09 18:47:57

I had the orla keily one (different print) and it was crap - the zip kept sticking and it seemed badly made. I've had a mulberry one for a couple of years now - not the same design as that, and it's never let me down - it did cost a fortune though. Liberty do some lovely own brand ones -have you had a look on their website?

DoingTheBestICan Thu 12-Nov-09 18:49:46

I will probably end up getting a cheap one from Next,i am having second thoughts now & tbh i dont like spending so much on myself either.

Has anyone seen a similar sized purse anywhere on the high street?

DoingTheBestICan Thu 12-Nov-09 18:52:40

Yes i have but nothing on there took my fancy.

I am confused now.

upahill Thu 12-Nov-09 18:54:06

Personally I'd buy both and have one for everyday and one for best. in fact I've been thinking about getting some new purses. They are nice

DoingTheBestICan Thu 12-Nov-09 18:57:24

I think i will go to the Mulberry outlet tomorrow & have a look there.

Does anyone know if there is an OK one anywhere?

faustina Thu 12-Nov-09 19:08:06

I just looked on the liberty website and there isn't much is there.. The shop is better.
