Rebecca Minkoff red hot beauty

Some of you may already know that I am a Rebecca Minkoff handbag fan. I have been loving her design for 3+ years now. Many bags came and left (because either the style or the colours did not work out for me) but I always have a place in my heart for RM!

Now, some of you may think this is very Chanel inspired. Trust me, I had a Chanel and it just didn't work for me. The style is somewhat boxy and I was afraid using it because it felt so dressy and too expensive to just carrying it out. Eventually I let it go. When I saw RM came out with the Affair style, I was so happy! With several leather and hardware colours to choose from, it'd be awesome if I could find one in the combo I love.

Most Affairs were made in the regular/medium size. I saw a large size Affair when I was up in Seattle last year and thought the size would work perfectly for me since I like medium to larger size bag anyway. Unfortunately the colour they had was not enough for me to pull the trigger, so I waited.

I stumbled upon this beautiful blood red Affair with my favourite rose gold HW yesterday. She was just sitting on the shelf, alone, and I was so happy to bring her home! (I previewed some of her pictures on my Instagram yesterday already).

Onto the pictures (sorry, all pictures were taken somewhat indoor since the weather became "normal" here again, raining and cold)

YSL Lapis Arty ring
Ivanka Trump Whisker pump in luggage (sale going on now, REALLY comfy pump)

This is the first day I got her, sitting comfortablely in my car with her new sister RM leopard Covet (you have see me carrying it many times)
Both via Instagram (@kiwifashionblog)

Today she was sitting my lap as we drove

Sorry for the photo overload lol but I really want to share my joy with you. It was a happy day for me to find this beautiful Affair!

That bag is gorgeous! I even won't be mad that you gave up a Chanel. I would feel weird riding the subway with a ridiculously (but fabulous) bag on my arm every day.
The color is gorgeous and even better that you found it with rose gold hardware. I would love a bag with rose gold.
