A.K.A. the Rebecca Minkoff Sample Sale!
I went in search of my HG (Holy Grail) bag, the famed Rebecca Minkoff Mini Morning After Bag.
(Don't look at me like that. I didn't come up with the terminology.)
Here we are, in line.
We waited for about half an hour and were let in right on time at 4:00 pm. I was so nervous! There was no coat check and everyone was civilized but intent. AT FIRST.
There were a ton of girls there already carrying their RM Morning After Clutches! I previously haven't liked the ones tipped in neon, but this girl styled hers so well!
I found the exact purse I wanted and grabbed it, then headed to the sample section where I picked up a full-sized MAB.
But as I was walking around, I realized that another lady had the same exact bag, and it was marked $77 cheaper! So I went to ask her if there was something wrong with it, and she was so nice and totally indulged me. We checked the bags and found they were identical, so she came with me to two of the people working there and we asked if mine could be marked cheaper too. And they did it!
I'm so thankful to that lady, because not only did they mark the price down, but when the girl at the cashier read the price tag, she read it upside down and mixed up two numbers, so it was another $45 cheaper!
Here's the MAB Mini, on my awesome and cheap Crate and Barrel rug.
And the full-sized MAB sample. Note the yellow accents! My favorite part!
Together so you can compare size:
Sorry the pics are so yellow. I Photoshopped myself out with the first ones.
All original photos of the sale were by the wonderful people at the Purse Forum. Many thanks to Ray for being only slightly irritated when I repeatedly demanded his opinion on three almost identical bags in three almost identical shades of tan.
