Just realised the leather flaps on mine have curled despite it being stored in a dust bag . Anyone had this issue and fixed it?
I had a similar thought last week and dug mine out from my wardrobe. The flaps have also curled! Not sure I’d even use it as I work from home now but has anyone managed to undo the curl?

I haven’t worn mine in well over a decade, they used to be everywhere but I haven't seen one in years.
They are so heavy it’s hard to believe i tromped around London for so many years with it as my main handbag.
I do occasionally crack it out and give it a stroke but it definitely feels of a time. Maybe in another decade once the 90s trends of bodysuits and crop tops are over.

I had the mulberry Roxanne which I loved for about 18mths then got totally fed up with the weight and fiddly opening / closing straps . It then had a biro split in it and ink everywhere so I chucked it out.
Made me realise it doesn't matter how pretty something is if its not practical i won't use it .

Although I loved mine back in the day, I just have so many memories of it being so heavy and dragging it about so it just doesn’t fit in with my lifestyle now due to mostly wfh. When I do go into the office, I carry a laptop so the thought of the weight of Bayswater plus laptop is not appealing. Currently I use my Longchamp but really need to switch up to some kind of rucksack.

My Bayswater is fairly new, I've only recently been able to afford one! I'm surprised that so many think it's a heavy bag, I don't find it so. Also, I don't live in the UK and it's never been an over popular brand here, so to me it's a classic beautiful bag that you don't see around much. I chose a bright colour as colourful bags are my 'thing'. I absolutely love it and will use it forever.

@DramaAlpaca ooh what colour did you get? Mine is chocolate brown which is handy as it goes with most outfits and now I’ve got it back out again I’m going to start using it. I keep thinking things aren’t on trend or not for every day when in reality, I’m now thinking who cares anyway? I’m a self employed mum of one not a celeb, chances are nobody is going to be looking at me anyway 😂
I just need to fix the curling flaps on mine and hope they don’t leave too obvious a crease mark in the leather.

I always used to use my Bayswater for travelling as I could fit loads in it but tucked it away when DS was born. However I’ve just realised I can fit an awful lot of DS’s faff in it as well which is handy so I’m definitely bringing it back out. I actually prefer the older mulberry’s to the newer models (classic styles permitting - I will always love the Bayswaters!)
