Imagine this. You’ve just graduated and found yourself an entry-level job. While the pay is not spectacular, you’re looking forward to the challenges ahead. You’re also one that understands the importance on making the right first impression and fittingly, you’re on a lookout for a bag that’s suitable for work.
Something that’s affordable, yet comes in real leather. No, none of that pleather nonsense for you. You figure that while you may spend more in the beginning, the bag’s also going to be with you for years to come. You want something that’s styled more classically, but it cannot look too dated. Nothing trendy or fashionable please; you need something to project the right image, one that’s stable and trustworthy, like the bag you use.
It also needs to be roomy. Yes, as an entry-level minion you’ve already figured that you’ll be lugging work home more often than you’ll like, but everyone starts from the bottom. And most importantly, it cannot be flashy. Not something that’s covered with logos for sure; the last thing you’ll need is to offend the resident office bitch with with your monogrammed bag and attract unnecessary scorn.
In other words, get the Mulberry Hayden Tote that retails for GBP595, comes in lambskin (in Drizzle or Black), measures 44 cm by 35 cm and comes with a discreet oval Mulberry plaque in silver.
