Rebecca Minkoff Modern Times Morning After BagI’m kind of confused, folks. Well, not so much confused as undecided, I guess. That sounds more accurate. And what I’m undecided about is the mix of colors and textures in the Rebecca Minkoff Modern Times Morning After Bag. Being indecisive is not a normal part of my personality, so naturally, I find this a little disconcerting. And I need your help deciding.

On the one hand, the combination of black and other dark colors – deep purple, navy blue, etc. – is decidedly modern and more interesting than combining black with lighter shades. I also like purple quite a bit, and the color variation in the purple sections of this bag is subtle and beautiful. I guess my main issue is that embossing the purple sections with a faux lizard pattern makes it look sort of rough and shiny but not like real lizard skin, and therefore not particularly high end. Also, combining colors on a bag this large is always difficult since it will undoubtedly limit the number of ways the bag can be worn. So I find myself stuck in the middle – some of it is good, some of it is not so good. What say you? Buy through Bloomingdale’s for $550.

    I guess it’s just personal preference. I find this bag rather attractive to me. And if it’s just the same color combination without the faux lizard stamping on the purple, it wouldn’t be as attractive to me.

    Not bad, though I could deal without the lizard stamping.

    Once again, gold hardware kills an otherwise attractive bag.

    I adore RM and I adore purple, but this one isn’t grabbing me.

  • Denise

    I like the style and everything, but I’m not crazy about this color.

    I love this bag for its practical shape, but I’ve never been a big fan of combining black and dark purple. I do like the gold accents but with or without the lizard pattern, I think its the colors that are confusing me….the shape doesn’t permit this combo, but thats just how I feel about it!

    I love this bag overall. I like black bags but black bags can get very boring so with a pop of colour, it works well. =) And I`m debating whether or not to get a RM MAB or LV TREVI GM. HELP!

    so over this bag!
