Much has been made over fall’s leopard trend (in fact, much has been made by us), but it’s been difficult to crown a clear winner when trying to decide on the best leopard bag of the season. When we did a decidedly non-comprehensive roundup of some of the season’s spotted bags two months ago, many people liked the YSL option that cost a very unfortunate $3500.

The Mulberry Bayswater deserves credit where credit is due, it is truly much more of an iconic piece than many give it credit for. The shape and style of the bag has been compared to the Hermes Birkin countless times, and while there are similar aspects they are still very different bags. When I saw my first Ostrich Bayswater bags I fell in love.

We’re a couple days late on this story because we were hoping to have pictures for you, but no such luck. Instead, we’ll have to use our imaginations to figure out what Mulberry‘s line for use discount retailer Target will look like.

The collection, slated for release October 10, makes the British brand the latest in a long line of designers that have collaborated with Target for capsule lines of clothes, bags and shoes.

Leopard print never really goes out of style. But at times it comes back in style with power and right now is one of those times. Every designer is showing leopard print right now and I, for one, am loving it. I am a huge fan of leopard print accessories. Give me a bag or shoe with a great animal print and I am a happy fashionista.

In quintessential black leather, the Mulberry Alexa has arrived at Net-A-Porter today. The Alexa is a Mulberry favorite that has lead to a massive following, attracting fashionistas (and fashionistos) worldwide. Mulberry scored big when they designed and named this bag after Alexa Chung. And why does everyone love this bag? It can both be dressed up or dressed down, used for work or fun, and has an overall cool vibe.

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.

Are you part of the Apple revolution? Vlad and I still have one PC in our home/office but otherwise we have Apple products taking over each room of the house. And while you may not have one of their computers, the iPod and iPhone truly did change the way we listen to music and use cellphones. But how do you protect your precious products?

Heading to Coachella this weekend? No? Me neither. But maybe one or two of you are lucky enough to make the hipster pilgrimage out to Indio, California for the annual indie music festival that keeps getting less indie by the year. Or maybe you’re saving your airline miles for a future summer festival – maybe Bonnaroo in Manchester, Tennessee or Lollapalooza in Chicago?

The Mulberry Alexa has taken the handbag loving fashion world by storm. The shape of this bag, similar to the PS1, is the new cool. Laid-back, school-bag look is all the rage and we are loving it. You know why? It is casual without being sloppy and chic without being trendy. And then there is Alexa Chung, whom the bag is named after.

I want to like the Mulberry Cheetah Haircalf Bayswater Tote so badly. I love questionably tacky things, alternative-color animal print, and 80s revival. I love a statement bag that will make everyone look twice. I love being That Girl that will carry or wear stuff that some people don’t understand.

Despite all of that, I just can’t get on board with what’s going on here.
