•I really can't hide it, my Monday morning so far is going horrifically bad and I think the fact that I'm Mulberry-less is to blame for my misery. SO, I was super excited on Saturday as I was finally going to have an Alexa in my life and I'd wanted one in forever. Right up until the moment I walked up to the bag in the Bond St store, I had all hopes set on this lovely classic satchel in oak, well that was until I picked it up and felt hugely... underwhelmed.
The bag I had in mind was structured but still a little slouchy, made from gorgeous leather with perfect attention to detail and ideal for every day use. In reality, the fact that the oak Alexa is only made from buffalo leather opposed to soft matte or calf is probably the thing I felt most disappointed with. It just didn't feel like it was worth £795, and honestly I've wanted one for so long I had to talk myself out of buying it just for the sake of it even though I felt disappointed! After mooching around the shop and trying on other bags my friend Gem and I decided to cut our losses and leave, CUE ONGOING BAD MOOD.
I'm still 100% set on an Alexa, I love Mulberry and could quite easily have bought another bag like the Tillie Tote or the Bayswater but I really didn't want to buy something that I wasn't in love with, so my hunt continues! The upside is we're almost in to the autumn/winter season and classic versions of handbags will no doubt be revamped so I'm hoping my patience will pay off. In the mean time, the only thing I can do to shift this bad mood is shop for an 'interim' bag, one that is far less expensive and high street until I get my Mulberry fix!xo
