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!

Welcome to my Pink Coach Legacy Swingpack Cross Body Purse Inspired Kblossoms jewelry blog! This light pink Coach legacy leather purse is a classic practical elegant purse with polished gold hardware and is great for weekends, simple errands and travel. Since it's a cross body purse with a thin adjustable leather strap, it keeps your hands free to shop as you can wear this on your shoulder or cross body! It comes with a front zipper pocket where you can fit your ID, tissue, mirror and a zip top closure fabric lining. The inside of the purse is quite deep surprisingly; I can put my cell phone, wallet, keys, tissue, pocket mirror, makeup, and lip gloss in it. It's a very slim purse with these dimensions 7 1/2" (L) x 8 1/2" (H). This purse is lined with twill fabric and is very lightweight. The pink pastel color is very light and perfect for the Spring and summer and matches any pink outfit you see above and goes well with mint green too! I just love rose pink colored jewelry, accessories, blazers, and dresses! I had to downgrade what was in my wallet and regular purse to fit everything in here. I recommend getting the Coach Legacy Medium Zip Around Wallet to fit inside this cross body purse. It comes in black, cognac, deep port, and a beige color. The beige would be the closest match to light pink. This light pink color is no longer available online in the Coach website but you might be able to find it in Coach stores or on other online websites. If you like any of the pink outfit pairings above just click on the picture to be directed to Anthropologie, Steve Madden, and Net-A-Porter's websites. This pink Coach Legacy purse has been the inspiration for all my rose pearl and blush pink pearl Kblossoms earrings and necklaces you see above. I combined them with pink Swarovski crystals in gold chandelier, tear drop and cluster designs giving them a romantic whimsical feel when paired with any of the outfits above. Hope you enjoyed my blog! Please visit my Etsy site www.kblossoms.etsy.com to see more pink hand made nature inspired jewelry like these! Thanks for reading!
Oh my gosh, it's been 2 weeks since I've written! So much has happened recently. My good friend just got married!!! It was so fun and exciting. I've never been to a Chinese tea ceremony before, and I enjoyed watching it happen. There are so many traditional customs that should be observed, and preserved, to pass onto the next generation. I'm so glad to have been witness to her wedding celebrations.
One reason I haven't written in a while is that I've been so busy with designing nature inspired jewelry! Yes that's right, not only do I paint, but I also love making jewelry. It's a talent I picked up during my grad school years in Boston. As a professional working woman, I'm stuck in the urban jungle on weekdays. However, on weekends, I'm known to be out and about. It's great that I can have my paintings at home and at work, but I wanted to be closer to the outdoors and nature all the time. That's where jewelry comes in. It's wearable, and always with you, it's something you display everyday when you're out and about while paintings are something you display in your home. And when you change moods, fashion, or setting, you can always pick the appropriate accessory to express yourself.
My jewelry is available in 2 locations, with 2 themes. Here on Kblossoms.com, you'll find silver necklaces and earrings. And then, if you head over to http://www.etsy.com/shop/KBlossoms, you'll delight in gold necklaces and earrrings. Again, you'll see the common outdoor, nature theme, perfect for the urban professional girl (we keep nature in our hearts and love cute bird, leaf, starfish, coral, fairy, sun, moon designs!). In the descriptions, I've included suggestions on what clothing would go perfect with the selected pieces. Take a moment and browse through the two sites!
Each piece is hand crafted with delicate care by me. They take quite a lot of thought to pick out the right combination, and then even more time assembling them. Each piece is original and 1 of a kind, so if you like something, better snatch it up before someone else does! I'd also appreciate feedback on what you like and what you'd like to see more of. I love getting messages from my fans. You guys are the greatest!
