Mulberry Bag Envy

I'm suffering from a major case of bag envy. I. Must. Have. This. Bag. I'm telling myself it definitly falls under the need catergory in the wants/needs spaces in my wardrobe, and at £795 for the oversized version pictured it'd only take me 137.6 hours pulling pints at minimum wage to afford it. Which is only about 23 shifts and it'd make smiling at drunks whilst serving them ale at nine in the morning worth it.
Rambling aside this wonderful bag is Mulberry's Alexa bag for Spring/Summer 2010, based and named after Alexa Chung and her take on a typically traditional British style. After being spotted by creative director Emma Hill lugging around a vintage Mulberry briefcase she inexpectedly became style inspiration and this amazing buffalo leather satchel was born. Yes I'm gushing but who wouldn't?

Sadly I have to pay rent and other boring necessities so I've had a rummage of the internet and found some look-a-likes that are well worth the spends.
