I’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.
