It has been a while since I answered a question for Ask Megs, and it is time to bring it back. Whether it is a gift idea, helping narrowing down a bag choice, or anything else related to our coveted arm candy, I’d love to help out. This week, a reader wrote to ask for help to find the perfect bag for her 40th birthday gift from her husband.
Please could you advise what you could recommend to buy for about $1500. I live in London and have lots of designer bags, so I am very lucky and not sure what to invest in next.
My husband has very sweetly offered to gift me a bag for my 40th birthday. I would like a shoulder bag or one that can be carried in the crook of my arm. I would also like it in a brown or red color, but I’m open to different colors.
I am considering a Mulberry bag – but which one?
All advice is gratefully appreciated!
Mrs. N. P.
Thanks for writing! You are very lucky to already have an amazing collection and another new bag coming for your birthday. I focused on finding you some great Mulberry bags, but there are a few other designers with a similar aesthetic that I think you should check out. I decided on bags that pair classic with everyday wearable in a final product that you will be thrilled to carry for years to come. I stuck with options from Net-A-Porter for easy delivery for you! Here are my choices:
Mulberry Alexa Leather Bag in peach-pink | $1,250
Since you specifically named Mulberry, I found a few options. The Alexa is super stylish and I love the femininity the peach pink color offers.
