ok, in spite of the color transfer issue, i decided to go with the butter alexa. i LOVE LOVE it. however, there is a tiny tiny part that kind of looks like a rip on the leather surface. i didnt even notice this when i was at the store and i was there for a good half an hour maybe more. i dont know if this is normal with mulberry bags? there is only one other stock of the butter one at the store and that one doesnt have a clean lining, hmm how do i explain? there are threads that are loose? or hanging? hope you know what i mean, im really in a hurry posting this coz im so sleepy and we have an early flight tom. again, tia!
