B Tells: An affair with Rebecca Minkoff

When I think of a sample sale my mind goes to scary things. I typically avoid black friday all together because I can't handle the crowds but when my e-mail sent me a gift sharing Rebecca Minkoff's sample sale I really had to put it on my calendar. The tables and tables of bags was literally like putting me in a candy store at age 6. The line was about long as the New York City marathon but grabbing a MAC clutch with a friend to wait it out seemed possible.

While we were waiting in line I was pleasantly surprised that no one tried to cut me off or steal bags from out of my hands. Waiting the long line was really just like last minute impulse purchases at Target. I'd stand waiting and out of the corner of my eye I'd see another bag and think "do I want this one instead?" I started out in line with a blue lined MAC clutch then grabbed the studded rocker- no this is too small, stick with the MAC. Then I found a bronze MAC- no this is the same colors of the last bag you bought, decided to stick with the blue MAC. In the home stretch of the line I see a quilted patterned beauty peeking out. The quilted affair was it. A $400 bag for $150 + 2 hours of girl talk in line seemed like the perfect New York reward to me.
RM affair paired with corso como black boots, kate spade denim, j crew sweater, talula blazer
