Vlad and I have never been able to make one of the infamous Rebecca Minkoff Sample Sales and this year we finally will be able to not only make the VIP night but also co-host it with Rebecca.

By far one of the best parts of my first week back at school was Fashion Week – I jetted (well, ok, I took the subway) to shows before and after class. But I was highly anticipating the Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2011 show, and now I can say with full confidence that it exceeded my expectations.

It’s hot outside – why not cool down with some new handbags?

Ok, so these Rebecca Minkoff bags might not help regulate your temperature, but free bags are always cool nonetheless. We’ve teamed up with the fine folks at Parenting magazine to bring you a collection of three of Minkoff’s bags, valued at $1185, that are up for grabs today and today only.

A entire feeling of joy and excitement just came over me when I realized that the next round of Sample Sale season will be when Vlad and I live in NYC. That means I won’t have to post about these Sample Sales that I am dying to go to but can’t, rather I can bring you updated posts a-la-Racked style with photos and a play-by-play of the event.

After releasing a capsule collection for HSN, Rebecca Minkoff has decided to debut a luxury handbag collection exclusively for Saks Fifth Avenue this May. For its first collection, iconic Rebecca Minkoff bags such as the Nikki and Morning After bag are being refined in lizard skin and other luxe materials. Along with some of her well-known designs, Rebecca Minkoff is introducing new shapes to the line.

A day before the Rebecca Minkoff Fall 2010 presentation was slated to begin, Rebecca herself tweeted, “Who is afraid of a little snow??? The show must go on!” Well, that was before “a little snow” turned out to be a full-on blizzard that was enough to close all public and private schools and universities in Manhattan save for Columbia University (thanks guys.)

Therefore, if I was going to have classes as the snow frantically swirled around the city, I was going to make it to the Rebecca Minkoff presentation.

We followed up with our Rebecca Minkoff Spring Preview with a short interview with Rebecca Minkoff. We asked some forum members what questions they had for Rebecca Minkoff and here she answers.

Find out what is next for the brand, how the economy has affected her business, and when the next sample sales are!

For our last business trip to New York City, we knew it was time to step up our game. For the purpose of showcasing wonderful new bag candy, images did the job, but video was definitely better. Without further ado, we’re proud to present our first official Purse Blog Video coverage. In full 720p high definition and then some!

Our first victim of this cunning stunt was successful designer and friend Rebecca Minkoff.

Rebecca Minkoff Roadie

The Rebecca Minkoff Roadie is a favorite here! I played around with the Roadie and fell in love. I could imagine slinging her over my shoulder for a long road trip, traveling, or just going out and about. It is easy to wear, the perfect size, and has the perfect zing with the studs. There is an easy access exterior zip pocket and interior zip, slip, and card pockets.
