Okay guys, confession time. Just before Christmas I may have splurged a little and treated myself to a new bag. I mean, you gotta treat yo self from time to time. I probably treat myself more often than I should, but we all have our hang ups, right? Hehe. Anyways, this ah-mazing Rebecca Minkoff bag was my little Christmas present to myself. I mean look at it, merry Christmas to me.
I can’t even tell you all of the things that I love about this Rebecca Minkoff bag. Hands down my new favorite bag. It’s chic with a hint of edge. In other words, it’s basically perfect. First of all, grey and taupe are my favorite neutrals because they can go any direction—so this charcoal beauty is easily an everyday bag. The pewter makes the bag even more neutral, which I love. I also love the rivets on it. It gives the bag a nice little flare!
The bag is also genuine leather, so it’s sturdy and luxurious all at the same time. The top layer of the bag is suede, which I’m a huge fan of. It helps soften the look just a bit. It’s really important to be gentle with suede, though, so be sure to care for it properly. The first thing that I did when I got my bag was use Kiwi Suede Protector on it. Kiwi is my favorite brand for caring for all of my suede. I use it on all of my suede shoes, too, and it helps expand their lifetime!
Now, you might want to know about the size of the bag. Naturally, everyone has different preferences on size based on what you like to keep with you. For me, this is the perfect size bag. It fits exactly what I need in it! The necessities, of course, include my phone, wallet (my exact color is sold out but there are plenty of colors still in stock!), keys, my favorite hand cream, breath fresheners, and of course some of my favorite lip colors (linked above).
Needless to say, this was money well spent. I’ve carried this bag everyday since I got it! It’s so versatile and easy to dress up or down. What types of things do you look for in an everyday bag? And what are your favorite things to keep in your bag?
