My First OOTD and The Mulberry Roxanne

Today I had a new experience.  I've never actually taken a photo of what I'm wearing for anyone other than my mom and sister.  We frequently need each others advice on what to wear but the text message pictures aren't fancy.  It's much harder than it looks on Instagram.  Everyone looks so put together, with perfect lighting and interesting backgrounds.  Not to mention the contortion it takes to get everything in frame.  I'm not talking about the ones that someone shoots for you or the mirror selfies.  These are the shots I'm talking about.

Top:  Ralph Lauren Sheer Silk Shirt 
Camisole:  Actually a lace slip from La Perla
Scarf:  Forever21
Pants:  Mossimo for Target Skinny Jeans (dark gray)
Boots:  Coach 
Necklace:  J. Crew
Earrings:  Nordstrom
Bag:  Mulberry Roxanne

This outfit is pretty typical of my style.  Neutral, classic, a mix of expensive and inexpensive.  This bag is what inspired me today.  I'm really loving everything winter white.  A probable side effect of the weather we've been having lately.  

It's the Mulberry Roxanne.  An oldie but goodie, retired by Mulberry but still available from various pre-loved sites as well as the ever so risky E-bay.  This used to be the "it bag".  Everyone had it or wanted it.  The quintessential British luxury bag from a time when the brand was still hard to come by in the US.  I love all of the new Mulberry bags but there's just something special about The Roxanne.  It's sturdy, the leather feels quality, and it holds a ton.  If you have one, you should dust it off and start using it again.  I really think it's time for a comeback.
