I have been coveting this faux exotic item since the Spring/Summer 2012 accessories began trickling in November 2011. I couldn’t stop thinking about it but I couldn’t bring myself to pay full price for it either. I knew it would go on sale as it was a seasonal item but I also know many people seem to be coveting the same item as I am (or at least I thought so). I did my research (as with most of my major purchases) and finally pulled the trigger when I thought it was the best possible deal I could get.
For the first time ever, I shamelessly asked for contributions to my birthday fund for my coveted item. My sister and G were both very gracious and generous to chip in! I was able to get the item for a little over 30% off retail from Matches Fashion (they ship to US VAT-free and I was able to find a coupon) before my birthday and am mighty pleased to have this in my collection!
Without further ado…

Pride, the mascot for London Olympics approves of Alexa since they’re both British!
I received the Alexa at the end of April, a month early from my birthday but I didn’t take any pictures of it until now. I figured it’s befitting now with the London Olympics that just begun and Mulberry being a British brand! Also, better than late than never, right? Heh.
