Same! In 2010 I was deciding between Mulberry Alexa and the PS1. I didn't have enough money for both then, as I had just started working. Ultimately got the PS1 (no regrets). I was gutted that the Alexa got discontinued after. But now that the it's back I can finally add it to my collection.I'm curious to see it in person! Ten years ago I wanted one but bought a PS1 instead. I still love the aesthetic!
As an owner of both bags I actually preferred the PS1 more so I think you made the right decision back then by choosing that over the Alexa Alexa is lovely, it’s still one of my beloved bags and always will be, I lusted after the style for a long time and had saved up all my money to buy it back then. I don’t regret it, but I definitely liked PS1 a bit more. It had everything from its many pockets, incredible lightness, and comfy soft strap!Same!

I do not think that you are too old to carry it. This colour will look lovely with darker clothes or with jeans and a white top. If you love it - enjoy it!
It's beautiful and no way are you too old for it! Even if you were 62 you would not be too old to wear it.
I’m a just few years older than you and I’d definitely wear it. Pink is a good neutral and goes with most things. I’ve got a few pink bags or I might have been tempted to get this instead of the black. Age means nothing!
Thanks for your review and pics!I’ve not posted on here for ages!
I was tempted back to Mulberry by the talk of the Alexa and I ordered the Limited Edition Gunmetal one when it came out on Monday and also an outlet black one
I was hugely disappointed by the LE one!
It‘s not gunmetal really - more a shiny black and it looks and feels really plasticy
I was also really disappointed in the hardware - it’s noticeably less chunky on the newer one and just feels ‘cheaper’ - which it certainly isn’t!
Suffice to say I’m keeping the outlet one - especially as it’s £550 cheaper!
I hope you get one, it's a very special bag. Even though it's super rare, they do come by now and again -- I saw one in very good condition listed on one of the Facebook groups a couple months ago, but it got snapped up very quickly.Wow, you're so lucky, I would love a SDR in the oxblood silky nappa! I keep scanning preloved sites in the hope that one day one appears that I can buy and treasure.
Oh wow, this is actually stunning! You should keep it. I'm sure you can style this colour beautifully.
