I have been searching for the perfect black bag for a while, and I think I have found one very close to it. Mulberry did a really good job with the Alexa bag. Most of the time a top handle is enough for a handbag, but there are times when you are shopping, or running to catch a bus that a should strap is very handy. The two straps with buckles in front adds a certain coolness factor to it and yet you know this bag will not be out of style in two years. The versatile black and oversized bag will work with both relaxed-weekend wardrobe to a more formal work wardrobe. We all know that we don't change our purse everyday no matter how good we are, *guilty here* , so the versatility is definitely a plus.
