The Mulberry sling and Ann Taylor Loft dresses are back on the market.

Black leather bag

What: My friend had this French Connection bag I admired, so I had my man in Dharavi make it in foam leather with extra pockets.


What’s really helpful is that it doesn’t have a zipper, putting contents within reach. It’s huge and has one front pocket, one zippered pocket at the back (the inside of which came undone and was restitched) and a zippered pocket at the back. It has buckets for phone and diary.

The sides expand and contract


That’s the back there:


Why am I letting it go: Because hoarding does not make me happy. Because I want a simple life with fewer choices.
How much did you buy it for: Rs 2000
How much: Rs 700

Burberry sling
I used to be sentimental about this sling since it went with me to Israel. So long buddy.



What it is: Black leather. Brass accents. Monogrammed. Pocket populated; there are two zippered ones of various depths at the back, one in the front, one zippered one inside and a bucket for phone.



The lining is a little stained.

How much did you buy it for: Rs 1100
Why are you letting it go:
Because I have found a sling which works perfectly for me.
How much: Rs 500

Fossil Sling

Warm brown leather with key and heart lock on the side.

Zippered pocket inside with a pocket in the front.

How much did you buy it for: Rs 2700
Why are you letting it go: Because I have found a sling which works perfectly for me.
How much: Rs 1200

Hansiba kurta
A few years ago, when Hillary Clinton came to Mumbai, I spent the day professionally stalking her. She visited this shop on Malabar Hill that retails clothes and accessories made by a rural woman’s co-operative. I bought this kurta in an attempt to get into the shop before she did. Problem is, it’s the same colour as my skin, making me look like I’m nude and have a rare skin rash that looks like chikan-kari. Yay.


The edges are raw and unheeded, intentionally. It’s a gentle A-line cut with no slits on the sides.


Bought for: Rs 1300

  1. Hi Mitali,

    I want the black leather bag and the fossil sling.
    I can pick it up from Bandra or Vashi (or CST- I remember you had told me you worked closeby) but only next week. I can pay you the amount right away. Please?
