A fun black bag under $300? Yes please.
When I started PurseBlog, the very first designer I ever met was Rebecca Minkoff. I still remember how nervous I was to meet her, but we ended up hitting it off right away. Over the years her brand has grown into an international household name and we still have the loyal Minkettes on tPF and reading PurseBlog daily.
I will always be a classic RM girl, partial to the MAB, MAC and Matinee (anyone remember that bag? Still one of my favorites). There are ample new designs as well, including this Rebecca Minkoff Midnighter Top Handle Bag. Rebecca sent me this bag and I wanted to share it with you.
A few things to note off the bat: you have to be a fan of stud detailing to like this bag. Each panel of leather is outlined in signature studs, and I don’t find the studs to be too large, as they are probably slightly smaller than the top of an eraser and flat. The bag is light! I have never wanted a light bag more than I do since I had Millie. Today I was carrying her around the mall in her BabyBjörn and my bag, even though I edited it down, was still heavy enough to make me feel uncomfortable. This bag is not heavy. and the leather is still really buttery. The dimensions are too small to fit my typical continental zip wallet, but large enough to fit your essentials. (Not large enough to carry any additional baby essentials, though.)
I’d probably change the strap out—the grommeted strap is a bit much for me. I know Rebecca Minkoff, and the majority of other brands, offer interchangeable straps now, so there are options if that’s what you like as well (actually, I really like this floral one RM offers). While not my typical, go-to style, I really love this bag for an easy throw-it-over-your-shoulder-and-go bag. The strap is long enough to carry cross-body and there’s a top handle in case you want to carry it that way as well.
