hi, can you please help me pick a colour for alexa i think i have it down to 2 ink or oak regular i keep changing my mind i love the black but think it might be to delicate for me and pros and cons to consider....
i would like to compare both side by side but i am having trouble finding both in stock anywhere.
thanks in advance

of the two, I think I am loving the Ink a little more. I think tan is absolutely classic, but if I was to choose a tan, it would be the oak leopard!!

You just need to think about what colours you wear the most, but both are gorgeous!

Good luck, its a tough decision!

I would also go for ink in this case. There are lots of lovely bags in oak/tan, but not as many blue bags available. I think the Alexa in ink is stunning!

linnea and laura-m thanks for your advice, my dh has been saying for a while to just get it, but its so expensive i keep thinking the colour has to be perfect for me at that price. then finding stock is another story..

Hi Messy - I think you can guess what I am going to say.....Ink, Ink, Ink.

Don't mind the SA - it's a colour you won't get tired of. Mulberry do a lot of oak bags but very few in blue. It's more unusual and I think it goes with loads. I wore mine today with a blue dress, black opaques, black boots and coat and the ink Alexa and I thought it looked great (well I would, wouldn't I?).
If you wear jeans - it looks absolutely great. I just love mine so I totally recommend Ink. I spent a long time deliberating and to be honest I only came round to Ink at the end - but it was totally the right choice.

I also agree with chloe - if not Ink then go with OL which is stunning!

You're right to take your time though - it is expensive so you have to make the right choice.

thanks Messy, I've just rehomed the black Alexa as although she is gorgeous I just don't seem to use black bags.

At the moment I am using my OL Alexa as she is the newest :smile:

Let us know what you're thinking - it's a hard decision to make isn't it?
The full price was a big leap for me I have to say. I am frantically ebaying to help me with the cost but I think it was worth it.

I wonder does anyone have an opinion on possible future resale values? Is the oak the classic which will hold it's value better than the seasonal colours or will the seasonal colours be rarer? I suppose because the Alexa is so new it is difficult to predict.

Hi Messy, I would say go for Oak Alexa, I absolutely love using mine and she goes with everything. But whatever you choose will be lovely, all the colours are nice.
