This bag is red. I mean shockingly, bright, bold, in-your-face red. The kind of red that is a bit hard to wear. I am always seeing women that rock true red lipstick and make it look perfectly gorgeous. Let me be honest, I am not one of those women. Red lipstick looks scary on me. It just doesn’t seem to flow. And I am not sure I could pull off a truly red bag. But once Net-A-Porter showed the red Mulberry Bayswater with a summery outfit, it worked perfectly and I thought just for a second, ‘Hey, that could be me’.
Will my fate with red handbags be the same as my inability to rock red lipstick? I am not sure. What I do know is this is a gorgeous true red. There are not many orange undertones, just red, red, red. And the bag sporting the red leather, the Mulberry Bayswater, is a fashion staple.
We always talk about using your accessories to add color to your outfits, this bag being a perfect example. But such a standout bag may be too much for your taste, to which I am in the same boat attempting to think if this would work for me. I will need to try this bag, or a similar colored bag, out myself before I can make a final decision. $1,150 via Net A Porter.
