Consider this a PurseBlog Savvy PSA: the Rebecca Minkoff Nikki Hobo is being made in the ever-popular wine color again!

Rebecca Minkoff Niki Hobo

Back when Ms. Minkoff’s line of bags was just beginning to really take off, Lauren Conrad was seen carrying this bag in this color and demand for it (and other bags in the line) started to spread like wildfire. It was impossible to find, backordered for months, and tons of girls wanted to get their hands on one. Well, better late than never – if you were one of those girls that didn’t satisfied your desire back then, now you can! Rebecca Minkoff is remaking one of the colors that made her famous and the only think standing between you and this classic bag is several hundred dollars. Buy through ShopBop for $595.

I feel like I am always on the hunt for a reasonably priced, functional and fun handbag. Aren’t we all? Of course, in an ideal world, I could walk into any store, see I bag I like and simply buy it. Let’s be honest, I don’t live in that kind of world. So, I have to say, the Rebecca Minkoff Nikki Hobo is a bag I would certainly save up for. I love most of Rebecca Minkoff’s bags as it is, but the Nikki Hobo is a bag I could see myself carrying around on a daily basis. It seems as if all of her bags have that element of functionality which most of us look for. Sure, every now and then I find myself making an impulse buy but for the most part, I want the handbags I own to serve several purposes. You know, so I get my money’s worth.

Once I started looking at the bag a little more closely, I noticed the amazing attention to detail. I love the distressed leather and shoulder strap combination. Looking inside the bag, the material and design of the lining is simply gorgeous. Sure, for the most part, nobody is going to be spending more of their time staring inside the bag rather than noticing the outside, but anyone who catches a glipse is sure to comment. I guess more than anything, I can see myself carrying this bag to the gym, grocery shopping, to work and even out on the town. Again, you can see how this all goes back to the initial idea of functionality and fun! Buy through ShopBop for $600..

Today is a good day. Not only did Bluefly just add more inventory to their store, but they also added some really GREAT inventory.

We have several Rebecca Minkoff lovers that frequent our sites. And hey, who can blame them, Rebecca Minkoff designs are HOT! One of her more recognizable designs is the Nikki Hobo. We’ve seen several iterations of this design. All a little different yet all gorgeous. Today, we have yet another version of the Nikki, one that I like as well. (more…)

I have a love-hate relationship with bags that have hard shoulder straps. Plastic, Lucite, wood, bamboo, whatever – I think they look great. They provide a great textural and visual contrast with a bag that’s made of soft leather, and they show a bit of creativity without being over-designed.

So, that’s the love part. What I hate is how they feel to carry for an extended period of time, and I can’t help but think that the Rebecca Minkoff Resin-Handled Nikki Hobo is going to fall into that trap. (more…)

Alright, alright. I know we’ve already covered another Rebecca Minkoff bag today, but I’m sorry, I’m not sorry; I couldn’t help myself. The RM Nikki bag is one that we’ve seen several times before, but now there is an option for an exotic look. The Rebecca Minkoff Python Microfiber Nikki Hobo Bag actually makes me squirm. I don’t like it one bit. (more…)

Megs had mentioned yesterday that she got caught up on Shopbop shopping for quite a while. Well, with all the new fall bags, I am not surprised at all. In fact, I’ve been memorized with all the wonderful bags to choose from. One bag that I simply can’t get over is the Rebecca Minkoff Mini Nikki Bag with Resin Handle. The Nikki Bag is nothing new to us here on Purse Blog, but it is great to see a different take on this classic. (more…)

Ah, the Rebecca Minkoff Nikki Bag is like coming home. You know the feeling. No matter where you live or how long it has been since you’ve been home, more often than not when you do return home, you are able to breathe a sigh of relief. This is how I feel about Rebecca Minkoff‘s Nikki Bag. No matter what color, I always breathe a pleasant sigh of relief. (more…)

So we’ve written about the Rebecca Minkoff Nikki Hobo like 80 bajillion times. I know. If you’re sick of hearing about the Nikki, skip this. I won’t be offended. The thing is, though, unlike most of the population, my favorite color is red (the vast majority of society prefers blue, according to my freshman psych professor a few years back). Great red handbags are super rare, since its color properties make it exceptionally hard to turn ANYTHING vividly red (anyone that has ever tried to paint a wall red, like I have, knows this very well. It takes like 4 coats of paint to get a solid, non-splotchy color. Even if you use nice paint. Which I didn’t. But I digress). The same thing applies to dying leather, apparently – most of the red bags you see are very muted, a bit brownish, and not particularly attractive. What Rebecca Minkoff has managed to do, however, is make a bag out of REAL LEATHER (it’s much easier to make bright red pleather) that is perfectly and truly red. And it’s also patent, but not so ridiculously patent that the combination of the color and the material become costume-y. Miss Minkoff has struck a perfect cord for me, and I’m seriously lusting after one of these red beauties. Buy through Shop Bop for $595.

Now, isn’t this just super cute? I am confident many of you out there are familiar with the big necklace hit in the 80’s: best friends necklaces. You better *know* that I had one. It wasn’t anything expensive, but I totally gave part to my friend Sara and I wore the other half. I was, like, super cool. I am pretty sure it didn’t take long for the chain to break, but luckily that wasn’t a sign of Sara and I growing apart, in fact, we are friends still today – years and many moves later.

While I am not completely sure if these necklaces still float around, I love that Rebecca Minkoff has taken a modern spin on the 80’s classic. (more…)

Even if you’re not a fan of chilly mornings or pumpkin-flavored things, you have to admit fall’s cozy wardrobe is a welcome change after months in cotton and linen. And we’re not just talking about …
