Even though we’re back in the 50s today, it neared 70 degrees in New York City yesterday, so I can confidently say that it’s time to start bringing out all of our spring finery, even if it’s in defiance of the actual weather outside. That means that pastels like the Mulberry Flower Mini Bag are fair game, and if you’re lucky (and if you followed the clues from our Net-a-Porter x PurseBlog Ultimate Fashion Hunt riddle yesterday), this adorable little bag might be headed your way. The winner will be notified via email soon, but first, let’s discuss why we wanted to reward one of you with this bag in the first place.
As we’ve discussed seemingly ad nauseum, spring has taken its sweet time coming around this year. That makes even someone like me, who’s prone to dark colors year-round, yearn for the sugary embrace of spring’s sweetest pastels. If you’re predisposed to a pale palette, I can’t even imagine how eager you’ve been to strap on some baby pink or mint green. This little bag, if made larger, could be too cloying or saccharine, but in this incredibly petite shape, the girlish color, scalloped edges and flower hardware feel like they could be successfully pulled off by a very chic adult with a bit of a whimsical sense of style.
More than anything, though, this design feels like a ray of sunshine in bag form, and for a season this late-arriving, maybe that’s what we all need. If you guessed correctly, make sure you check your email to see if you’ve won! If not, soldier on – we have one more bag to give away, and the hint goes live at 10 a.m. tomorrow!
If you’d like to pick up one of these bags for your very own, you can do so for $670 via Net-a-Porter.
