Welcome to our Mini Mulberry Alexa inspired Kblossoms jewelry blog! The most sought after Mulberry Alexa bag has shrunk to a mini size and I'm just truly amazed by how much stuff I can fit in it! It debuted in 2010 named after Alexa Chung and is a cross between the Mulberry Bayswater bag and the men's Elkington briefcase. I really like how it looks like a messenger bag but a smaller version of one. It's an absolutely perfect and stunning mini purse! The picture above shows the three sizes of the Mulberry Alexa: mini, regular and oversize and the models in the picture are either carrying the mini or regular size Alexa. I love how the mini Alexa is so small and easy to carry (17cm x 27cm x10cm) and can still hold all essential things I need every day and did I mention I really like the cross body style! It comes in oak brown color soft buffalo leather which softens with use over a few months. It has a beautiful signature postman's lock closure, cute belt strap and buckle detailing, braided top handle and a mulberry tree fabric interior lining. I like how you don't have to undo the buckles to get into your purse; it has two gold snap fastenings. The leather strap is detachable and adjustable. The above is a soft buffalo color that is best worn with Fall color clothing such as olive green pants, a olive green or khaki Safari jacket, and mustard yellow and burgundy outfits. The Coach Legacy Medium Zip Around Leather Wallet in Brass/Cognac fits perfectly inside this mini Mulberry Alexa! In fact, if you stack it vertically, it takes up only half of the inside of the purse (see picture above). I'm able to fit my wallet, keys, lipstick, eye liner, lotion, comb, scissors, Droid phone, tissue, purse hook, mirror, band aid, pen, nail clipper, business card holder, shopping bag, and hair ties inside this Mulberry Alexa! Mini size purses these days are more popular because less is more and it leaves your hands free to shop, write, and carry things. The only down side I can see to this bag is there is only one interior side pocket; everything else gets jumbled at the bottom of the bag since there are no other compartments to hold your phone or lipstick. It's difficult to find this Mulberry bag in the US, there are only Mulberry stores in New Jersey, New York, San Francisco and Virginia but if you don't live in these cities, you can call them and see if they can ship it to you. There are some stores online that sell it like Net-A-Porter, Selfridges, and Harrods but it's probably easier and safer to buy it directly from the maker at www.mulberry.com in the UK but you still have to pay the international shipping cost and duty fee into the US. I heard that Harrods in the UK deducts the VAT fee for the bag but does charge an international shipping fee. Check out this Inside the Rookery video that shows how the Mulberry bags were hand made and sewn together with delicate care! The Kblossoms jewelry above were inspired by the Mini Mulberry Alexa bag in oak. If you like the mulberry tree paper canvas art design above, please visit 1,500 Tree Project on Etsy; the artist is trying to sell 1,500 canvas trees to adopt a second child. Her first adorable son she adopted is from Taiwan. The tree of life citrine necklace looks like a mulberry tree and the gold leaf citrine necklaces are equally beautiful reminding you of the beautiful Fall foliage and Mulberry bag for the Fall too!

This is a new Autumn Butterfly Fairy Door Painting I did for my mom to post on her door. It's a sign that reminds guests to remove their shoes before entering, as it is customary to do in Chinese households. This painting was done with mixed mediums: watercolor, gouache, color pencils, salt, sticker lettering, Swarovski crystals, lace, and gold trimming. Hope you like it!
