In preparation for National Handbag Day this Friday, October 10, we’ll be announcing a special bag every day. Each bag is from one of our very favorite designers, and they’re all available at Bloomingdale’s, our National Handbag Day partner. To kick things off, we have the Rebecca Minkoff Waverely Eyelet Studs Crossbody.

It’s truly been a joy to watch my friend Rebecca Minkoff grow over the years. From starting a line with only a few bag designs (like the famed Morning After) to expanding into a well-known brand whose wares include bags, clothing, shoes and jewelry, Rebecca Minkoff has changed before our eyes.

Rebecca Minkoff Love Shoulder Bag Green

Whenever a bag from the handbag market’s highest price tier hits a certain point of critical mass, it comes time for designers at lower price points to adapt the look for their own purposes. Céline and Givenchy have been the most popular sources of this kind of “inspiration” over the past few seasons, and now the Rebecca Minkoff Love Bags have the Chanel Boy Bag in their sights.

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: The combination of graphic white trim, stylized faux-snake leather and black hardware results in a modern, slick shoulder bag that can look both sharp or casual, depending on how you style it.

Allison Williams Rebecca Minkoff Elle Studded Satchel

Here’s one of Girls leading ladies, Allison Williams, filming on location for the hit HBO series in NYC. She’s carrying a white Rebecca Minkoff Elle Studded Satchel (or her character Marnie Michaels is carrying one, I suppose). Either way, a bright white Elle is a great bag for summer.

Emmy Rossum Rebecca Minkoff Blake Studded Shoulder Bag

The always-adorable Emmy Rossum was recently spotted running errands around Beverly Hills with a minty blue Rebecca Minkoff Blake Bag. This colorful top handle bag really pops with her lacy top, heather jersey skirt and color-matching ballet flats. The Blake is a style from last spring that’s sadly not currently available online, but you can find oodles of Rebecca Minkoff bags, shoes and apparel at ShopBop.

Spring 2014 deliveries will be in stores before you know it (seriously, they’ll be starting by the end of the holidays, which means we have only weeks to wait), and that means it’s time to start planning how our seasonal purchases are going to go once the sale-season craziness ends.

Rebecca Minkoff Iridescent Elle Bag

When I wrote about the Rebecca Minkoff Iridescent Elle, I knew it would sell out quickly, and it did. I can’t find this bag anywhere online right now, but for all of you who wanted a closer look, I can give you that.

When this bag went down the runway, it was my absolute favorite bag and I knew I would have to have it. So I sat around waiting for this bag to hit the virtual shelves and the Rebecca Minkoff Iridescent Elle finally has.
