Shop Proenza Schouler via Net-A-Porter

Yesterday afternoon marked the VIP night of this year’s bi-annual Rebecca Minkoff Sample Sale. Since we were co-hosting the sale, Megs and I were invited to enter an hour before the doors opened to the public to check out the goods, mingle with celebs like Michelle Trachtenberg of Gossip Girl and chat with the RM team.

The initial onslaught of shoppers hit right when the doors opened at 4pm.

Tory Burch Robinson Tote, $550 via Tory Burch online.

I have been test-driving the Tory Burch Robinson Tote for the past few weeks and fallen in love with it. Tory’s accessory collection continues to grow and offer fun and functional designs. The over-sized logo has been toned down making the bags perfectly Tory without being overly in-your-face.

This collection has so many aspects to praise, starting with the sturdy and durable leather.

Yesterday we told you about the Fendi 2Bag monogramming event happening at Bergdorf Goodman today. You still have time to stop by, as it lasts until 5 pm, but either way have the pleasure of showing you the Fendi goodies BG has to offer.

Of course the main focus is the 2Bag and the option of monogramming it, but there are also many fabulous Fendi items (including an exclusive trench for BG).

I have to give you all a peek at my newest addition to my handbag family, my Diane von Furstenberg Medium Stephanie in navy. You all recently saw my large version of this bag, and my love for it only deepens with the addition of the medium size.

For Spring 2011, we see Diane von Furstenberg emphasizing much more on her bags and accessories line, which we welcome very much. We see many new bags, as well as some old ones with new features. The popular Stephanie relies now on much lighter leather, making it much more wearable than the previous interation (which was a bit of a weighty pig, if I may say so).

Earlier this week we popped into the Diane von Furstenberg showroom to see all of the amazing accessories arriving soon (we have a huge spring look for you all coming tomorrow). DvF continues to nudge her way into the competitive handbag market effortlessly, bringing fresh designs that are grabbing attention.

Contrasting and nonchalant. Femme sensibility and homme rigor. Splendid exotics and symmetrical patterns. A whole lot of black and white by Ferragamo, presented in B/W on PurseBlog. Enjoy:

I opted to buy a candle and decided my Chanel Classic Flap needed a photo op while our candle was getting customized.
