Rebecca Minkoff Resort 2012

One week ago today I was standing in Rebecca Minkoff's showroom previewing her Resort 2012 collection with a small group of bloggers. We were lucky enough to get a guide through the collection by the beautiful Rebecca Minkoff herself. She took us through her Resort 2012 handbag, shoe, and clothing collections. The common theme that went through each one is brightly colored pieces and the 1970s look. The collection colors were azure, turquoise, sunset and persimmon-- really nothing gets more resort then that. Much like her handbags her clothing line can easily go from day to night. She had this one red dress that was a sexy little number but could be tone down by throwing a blazer over it or paired up with her lace motor jacket. Yes, a lace motor jacket!
Another one of my favorite looks is the white lace dress with a zipper detail on the side. It is ultra feminine but can be toughen up with a leather motor jacket or a military style jacket. This dress is another one of her pieces that can go from day to night.
What is a resort collection with out bright colors?! Rebecca Minkoff filled her collection with an array of delightful and playful turquoises and reds. Including the shoes!!

And the bags. OOOOO the bags. I drooled over most of the collection. She appeals to every age and every taste. Whether you are a rocker chick or uptown chic she has a purse for you. I fell in total love with her canvas bucket bag-- it is 100% resort ready. It is big enough to carry your beach essentials -- beach towel, magazines, sun tan lotion, and chap stick but still chic enough not to look weighed down. Another one of my favorites was a total dowtown rocker chic bag, it had a vibrant yellow leopard print flap and black leather. It was small enough to carry around late at night but still big enough to stuff everything you would need for a night out on the town or a concert. If you are looking for sleek and chic the Saks 5th Ave collection is where you can start. Classic looks in materials like ostrich and alligator skin.

There is something about Rebecca Minkoff and her collections. They are timeless yet chic and now. I'm pretty sure she can easily run me bankrupt between her three collections. I want to thank Rebecca Minkoff and her team for inviting me to this fantastic event. I couldn't have been more excited to view her collection. Her handbags are one of my favorites out there and I hope to add some more of her bags to my own collection.

Just to end the post with a picture of some lovely bloggers (Wendy from
Sass 'n Curlz and Chris from The Tiny Tierant)and myself!
