One of our favorite designers has her sample sales coming up in the next few weeks. Kicking off the Sample Sale in New York City, Rebecca Minkoff will have a exclusive Cinco de Mayo MAB and Margaritas party for tPFers. Yours truly, Vlad and I, will be attending as well! Sample sale madness begins and we would love to see you at the RM Sample sale the night before it is open to the public. We hope to see you there!
With images leaking onto the web of designers upcoming seasons, it is not rocket science to find images of accessories that are yet to be released. But you know what is better than images? Video. And even better than that is video that shows the designer and her handbags. We got a peek at the Rebecca Minkoff Summer 09 preview, starring none other than Rebecca Minkoff herself. Enjoy!
Did you miss the Easter egg hunt on Rebecca Minkoff last week? No one likes to miss a shot at a freebie. And because of this, Rebecca Minkoff has decided to give 3 more of you the chance to win a RM Heart Compact. No Easter egg hunt this time.

This Rebecca Minkoff wallet is the perfectly cheeky solution to the age-old question, “paper or plastic?” Sure you can flash this colorful wallet in the bag boy’s face, but in this case ‘paper’ and ‘plastic’ refer to your credit cards and cash. Made of Italian leather, we love the bright colors and sturdy construction. Totally functional are the generous pockets perfectly sized for your “I can always return it” receipts and zippered coin compartment. It’s the bold gold metallic graphic that really has us sold. I’ll take one in every color please! Pair the “Paper/Plastic” wallet with a Rebecca Minkoff tote.

We all love Rebecca Minkoff handbags. Her designs are unique, chic and tote-worthy. The names of the bags are catchy and fun. For those of you who follow Rebecca Minkoff and all of her designing moves, you know what is coming up, Fall 2009 Apparel and Handbag Collection. Here at Purse Blog we’ve been eagerly waiting to see what is coming and honestly can’t wait to get a few pieces of our own. I hope you are ready for this, Rebecca Minkoff has something special for 3 lucky winners!
Between now and 12 pm EST tomorrow, Wednesday February 11th, 2009 you can enter to win an exclusive invite to see the Fall 2009 Apparel and Handbag Collection she is debuting in New York City. All you need to do is head over to the Rebecca Minkoff site and sign up for her mailer (add your email address). Once registration closes, Rebecca will select 3 oh so lucky winners (we are already jealous) to check out the collection on the evening of Thursday, February 12th, 2009. Yes, you’ll need to be in the NYC area since the event is so soon, but hey, hopefully the winners will come back and gush about how fabulous it was with the rest of us!
Oh and one more thing, those three who have been selected as winners, will get their very own Rebecca Minkoff Clutch as Rebecca’s way of saying THANK YOU for all your support! How much do we love her?!?!?! Good luck to you all!
We had the chance to steal a few moments from the vastly popular and busy Rebecca Minkoff to nab her thoughts on Valentine’s Day. Rebecca Minkoff is busy with her handbag lines and up next is a clothing line, which will be debuting soon. If her clothing line is anything like her handbag line, get ready to fight for what you want!
Love/Hate Valentine’s Day: Like- its fun and romantic but sometimes its too blown out of proportion!
Favorite movie to watch on Valentine’s Day: P.S. I love you
Best gift you have given on Valentine’s Day: A guitar to my fiance that me and some friends and family bought
Valentine’s Day plans: Hiding in a dark corner of our favorite restaurant and eating by candlelight
The best Rebecca Minkoff bag for a Valentine’s Day gift, why?: The Valentine’s Day Pouch Set, its a set of 3, is affordable and brightens up winter!
Holy poop, y’all. I love this bag. The Rebecca Minkoff Devote Belted Top Tote is, in a word, awesome. For me, at least. It’s a big ol’ hobo, made of great leather, in a bright color, with understated accents and JUST ONE STRAP. A lot of designers lately have succumbed to the urge to add an extra, longer strap to handbags that already have a perfectly functional one, and Ms. Minkoff didn’t do that to this great bag. For that, I salute her, and I just may have to get one of these babies. This shape is my favorite of all time – a hobo that’s slightly taller than it is wide with a giant opening at the top – all the better to dig through when my Blackberry has fallen to the bottom. That’s one thing this bag doesn’t appear to have that I wish it did – an outside pocket for holding my phone and iPod. But I guess we can’t have everything we want, can we, ladies? Buy through Nordstrom for $630.
Rebecca Minkoff is continuing on with her Sample Sales, moving to the West Coast of the US now. If you missed her NYC Sample Sale because you live in California, now is your shot at getting a coveted Rebecca Minkoff bag well below retail. Rebecca Minkoff will be holding a Los Angeles and San Francisco Sample Sale this week. Read up and check them out!
If you missed the Rebecca Minkoff Sample sale, like we did, then there is a treat for you! This Friday, which has come to be known as Black Friday, Rebecca Minkoff online is having a sale where goods will be up to 40% off. What will be there, we do not know, but it is worth setting an alarm, waking up, and seeing if you can get something good!
While we gave a sneak peak to the Minkettes on the forum already, it is time we formally introduce the Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2009 line. We had the pleasure to sit down with Rebecca two weeks ago to ask her your questions, find out more about what is to come, and see her hot new bags. Studs are seen on many of the bags, offering a rocker edge, which is the perfect touch for the gal with a little kick in her step. The colors are popping, the hardware is a mixture of old and new, and the wish lists for these bags are growing.
A hobo is the perfect shape for me. I suppose I sound like a broken record to you all, but I absolutely love a slouchy hobo. In fact, when I see what the girls in Hollywood are wearing and what bags they are carrying I would fit right in. I rarely leave the house dressed to the nines, in fact, I hope none of you see me on my morning errands! On a side note, I do think of that often and wonder if I should probably make sure to spruce up a bit more in case a Purse Blog reader or Purse Forum member runs into me. Anyhow, the Rebecca Minkoff Nikki is a Purse Blog favorite, not only loved by me, but loved by one of our newest members Amanda (and the countless celebs who adore RM bags, like Hilary Duff). Amanda covered this bag in her first post, and I feel the need to update and let you know about two of my favorite colors from RM this season in the Nikki. Best news is, both sea green and persimmon are carried at Shop Bop. I don’t have to go into great detail about this bag, because most of you already know about it. It is a hobo, with an magnetic snap top, inside pockets, and a slouchy appeal. Love it? Me too. Now the colors. There is the sea green, which eases your mind and adds a splash of Caribbean water goodness, and then persimmon which looks as luscious as the fruit it is named after. For me, the problem is choosing which color. Luckily, you can always buy both. $600 through Shop Bop.
Oh, and if you want to be a little more confused, there is a wine and yellow glazed leather version at Shop Bop for $625.
