Gosh darn it! I am still dreaming of a 3.1 Phillip Lim Edie Bow Bag. They sure are impossible to find now, aren’t they? Oh well, I suppose this will cheer me up. I stumbled across a bag that sort of reminds me of my dream bag today. It’s the Rebecca Minkoff Sweetie Bag!
Obviously, it is not a mirror image (I’m not saying Rebecca Minkoff copied 3.1 Phillip Lim or anything like that). The two bags do, however, share some similar characteristics that I find particularly desirable. They both have a large bow on the front, flap closure, studs, and an extra-long strap. The Rebecca Minkoff Sweetie Bag may not be my dream bag, but it is very cute nonetheless! It is small and, well, sweet. The rounded black studs on the black leather background makes for a great tone-on-tone look. Plus the tiny grommet trim is just too cute! I love the new leopard print lining and convertible chain strap (something Ms. Minkoff has been utilizing a lot in her designs lately). More of a party bag, this piece would be perfect for when you don’t want to carry a lot. It would look great paired with a party dress or your favorite girls’ night out ensemble!
