Rebecca Minkoff Mini M.A.C. in Black

Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend! 

I finally caved and purchased the Rebecca Minkoff Mini M.A.C. in Black with gold hardware and could not wait to share my first impressions. I have been eying this bag for over a year and with the Bloomingdale's 20% off Friends and Family coupon code, I finally took the plunge. For those of you that are interested in purchasing something from Bloomingdale's, I used the coupon code RETAILMENOT20 (coupon expires 6/9/2013) to purchase my bag.

I had a difficult time choosing between the Black with silver hardware and the Black with gold hardware, but I decided to go for the gold this time. 

The purse is a little bit heavy, which is most likely due to the chain, but you can easily detach the strap and carry this as a clutch as well!

I was really happy with the size as I am trying to minimize the amount I carry in my everyday purse. I am between 5'3" and 5'4" and the purse hangs at my hip. One thing I did notice was that the leather strap tassels are thinner than the ones on my mint colored bag.

There are no adornments on the back of the purse, but the leather is very smooth. The inside of the purse is patterned black and white. I have heard that some RM Mini M.A.C.s in Black do not have pockets in the interior of the purse, but mine does come with two.

There are four studs located on the bottom of the purse. 

I think this will be the last RM bag I will be purchasing for a while as I need to monitor my spending, but definitely a great piece to use both everyday and on a date. I hope you find this helpful! Comment below and let me know what you think or if you have a favorite RM bag. Have a lovely weekend!

Rebecca Minkoff Mini M.A.C. in Mint

Hello lovelies! It seems it has been a while since I last posted, but after two years, I have finally completed my Masters program! Since graduation, I have just been catching up on all the different odds and ends I have neglected, but I am excited to finally have the chance to return to my blog. Lately, I have been really into purchasing accessories to enhance my everyday outfits. I had never been a bag girl, but I have added a few new pieces to what was before a sparse collection.

Today, I wanted to reveal my new bag obsession, the Rebecca Minkoff Mini M.A.C.! Normally, the Mini M.A.C. retails for $195.00. I did purchase the item off of Amazon for less. However, because of the price, I really wanted to pick a bag that I would be able to wear for both spring and summer. Originally, I was going to go for black with gold hardware, but I absolutely fell in love with the Mint colored when it released this spring and took the plunge.

The bag comes with a silver chain link and mint leather studded strap that allows the bag to hang either at your hip or just below depending on your height. It can also be worn crossbody. The bag is also embellished by two sets of mint leather strips attached to the zipper pull. I tried to get the pictures to be as true to color as possible.

Here's a closeup of the silver hardware for the mint bag with the initials RM. This hardware can be unbuckled to reveal another pocket underneath the flap.

On the bottom of the purse are four silver studs. The bag also comes with a dust bag that matches the interior of the purse.

Overall, I think the details for the bag are great! Love the feel and quality of the leather as well as the color. One thing to note is that if you purchase this bag in the lighter colors, there's a possibility that the color of your clothing or jeans could rub off on the bag. I noticed this happening and was able to clean it up with a non-alcoholic, fragrance-free baby wipe. I can say I am definitely happy with the purchase and would definitely consider purchasing this bag in another color! Still have my eyes on the black bag with gold hardware!
