Oprah says it's okay to "wear the Birkin" even after that snubbing by Hermes. Unless Oprah happens to give me a Birkin I will probably never own one. I'm drawn to Mulberry's Large Metallic Tote - is it possibly because it's been described by Vogue as the Anti-Birkin? Really, I do like it - the clean lines, the shape, the size, the color. A dream bag in every sense, particularly in the sense that only in my dreams will I spend $995 on a handbag, albeit a fabulous one.
