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!
