Oh how I love Rebecca Minkoff, let me count the ways! I really do love this designer. I have just been a bit disappointed lately. Let’s face it, the tried and true styles like the Morning After Clutch (a.k.a. the MAC) are great but they get old after awhile. I want to see something NEW from Rebecca Minkoff! And after stumbling upon this Saks Fifth Avenue exclusive, it looks like my wish has been granted. Introducing the Rebecca Minkoff Bucket Bag with Studded Guitar Strap!
This style does resemble something already in existence. The bag is simply known as the “Leather Bucket Bag,” unusual for Rebecca Minkoff since most of her bags have distinct names. But this particular rendition is unique enough to warrant some excitement on my part. I love the pebbled leather, classic drawstring bucket styling, and oversized black studs running down either side. This isn’t what catches my eye though. Nope, that would be the gorgeous guitar-style shoulder strap. It is unusually wide for a bag this size. And if that wasn’t enough to make this piece stand out, the stud embellishment sure does! The studs are a mix of pyramid and flat round styles, which form an unusual pattern of nested ovals. It isn’t anything too over the top, but I also think it really sets this style apart from the others. I think this bag would pair nicely with jeans and a classic tee for a simple, yet fun tough girl look.
The Rebecca Minkoff Bucket Bag with Studded Guitar Strap retails for $425. Available here at Saks Fifth Avenue.
