Mulberry Creased Jenah Bag in TurquoiseI am, more or less, on board with the Mulberry Creased Jenah Bag. It’s on-trend in several ways – it has a chain strap, it’s a flap bag, and it’s smaller than the bags that we’ve seen in the past few seasons. It’d be a great addition to a spring wardrobe to satisfy a lot of the new bag looks in one package, theoretically. But the one thing that’s stopping me is…the color. I know that a lot of people will disagree with me, because I can see where people would think it was pretty, but I just can’t do it. Pastels (and this is basically a pastel) are not good on me. I have yellow undertones in my skin, and it’s just not a particularly lovely contrast. Also, for some reason, wearing any kind of pastel makes me feel like an enormous, 5-and-a-half-foot-tall toddler. I’m willing to admit that this is probably a hangup that only I have, but until I see it in another color (a medium-to-mustard yellow would be nice, if you’re listening, Mulberry), I’ll have to pass. Buy through Shop Bop for $1195.

    Way too pricey for the look, in my opinion. Love Mulberry, but they missed the mark on this one.

    not sure about the color~

    My sentiment exactly Amanda! I also have yellow undertoned skin and these pastels make me look sallow. I can only carry around the palest of blush pink and periwinkle blue in the pastel arena. Everything else makes me look sickly.

    Would have loved this in periwinkle… sigh…

    Hmm, now that you mention it I’m realizing that I’m slowly picking out spring pieces based on red and dark purple- not really spring colours in the traditional way.

    From what I see on the Mulberry web site shop, there are definitely many more colors available. I’m particularly fond of the white.

    Totally agree with you on this one, this color is so ugly. What it really reminds me of is my grandmother – she loves this color! Other than the color though, I’m not really loving this design, maybe it’s a bit too many trends all at once?
