A Very Mulberry Birthday Present


I have spent a good two years now resigned to the fact that my life would never be complete unless I could progess through it with a Mulberry Alexa draped over my right arm. I seriously see it as the bag of all bags, in its beautiful understated satchel-ly perfection. Finally, today was the day I hit the jackpot and bit the rather bitter-sweet bullet of handing over the cash for my baby, and I will most definitely never stop loving this, my new precious leathery child.

Technically my Alexa is my 21st birthday present, as back in April I decided I'd like a joint present from my mum, dad, and step-parents to make it extra special. Pooling the money of every relative under the sun, I knew this would be the perfect keepsake. Since April I've been ringing the outlet store near me three times a week to see if they'd had any delivered in, as I don't think I'd be able to afford a full price one even if I sold my kidneys. Today I did a little dance round the kitchen when finally the very harassed sales woman said they had one in stock. I toyed with the idea of the oversized Alexa once I got to the shop, but I knew I'd treat it as a casual satchel if I got that one, whereas I'll keep this as a special handbag. NOW IT IS MINE and I could literally weep with joy at the fact I am 'one of those girls' with an Alexa. I'll stop bragging now!
