Thanks to being a member of mintbox.com I was invited to RSVP for the Rebecca Minkoff VIP Sample Sale. After waiting 20 minutes online I wasn't asked to show my invite or wasn't even asked my name they just waved us in once enough woman have left. Mistake #1 not pounding champagne immediately when I walked through the door. It was a mob scene. Tons of bags and TONS of woman. The whole scene was a little overwhelming for me but after waiting on line I was going to find myself something. I did one lap around and discovered that bags were still ridic. expensive (for my bank account). I was amazed to see woman grabbing arm full of bags which made me wonder if they were going to resell these bags on ebay. The sample sale had lots of choices but only if you were willing to drop to $200 to $300.
I was disappointed that these bag prices weren't totally reduced and that this sample sale VIP wasn't really a VIP sample sale. I did however find the 3 Zipper Rocker bag for a friend price. Even though I really wanted the Beloved Mini bag in this lovely red color. My bank account and my heart battled it out for awhile while I was on line but my bank account won and I went with the 3 Zipper Rocker bag. I am however glad that at least I got a great bag that I will use but I could have done without the aggravation
