Mulberry Plaster Pink Soft Buffalo Mini Alexa Shopping Report

Posted in Handbags & Accessories, Mulberry with tags , , , on February 26, 2012 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

Well you ask for more of the shopping reports and we listen! So, it is with great pleasure to welcome back our guest editor “Mademoiselle L.” and her most recent shopping report on finding a perfect small size bag for every day uses in the busy city of New York!

I’m a new Mulberry customer and only started eyeing the Mulberry bags when I first saw the article about the Mulberry oversized Alexa on FashionistasDaily.com. I have a number of oversized top handle bags that aren’t great for running errands in the city. I’ve been looking for a small shoulder bag that’s good for taking a walk, going to the grocery store, or doing other tasks where I need my hands to be free. The mini size Mulberry Alexa is great for that! I was also looking for a fun color and I was sold on the plaster pink as soon as I saw the rose gold hardware.

So, one day I was talking with my friend Mrs. L ( she was my first friend whom I met at Parson School of Design NYC, we met in the elevator while moving into the dorm over her fabulous summer white Chanel bag! Yes, that’s how a true fashionistas met and started a beautiful friendship! Haha) on the facebook about this fabulous color and she told me that she is going to the Balenciaga boutique in NYC to get one of this “Moutarde” yellow color “City” bag.
