Nordstrom made me do it. That’s probably not entirely accurate.
What began as a quick trip to the mall (specifically to check out the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale makeup from Chanel) ended in a fashion frenzy. For some reason, in my head, when I hear Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I think two things – Fall preview, and (of course) makeup. It really never occurred to me that handbags would be included in this, and discounted. Call it mommy brain.. I do.
Apparently, it was fate that I parked by the entrance to the handbags area. I always walk through and check out what’s new. I can’t help it. Plus, when I’m sans children, it’s a lot more fun. On a table we see designer purses marked down in honor of the sale. Obviously, this requires a deeper look. Immediately, my eye goes to a snakeskin pattern. That’s just how I roll.
Imagine the huge and really rather goofy grin that spread over my face when I saw it was a Rebecca Minkoff Embossed M.A.C. Clutch (though, to me I say snakeskin… the color is actually listed as Natural). I needed a bag like this. Okay. Again. Not accurate. No one NEEDS a handbag when they have as many as I do… but really, I WAS in the market for a nicer, not so huge bag for Fall. This one was perfect, and on sale. WIN.
So, let’s check it out, shall we?
This one is a bit bigger than the Mini M.A.C. and not a cross body. It’s a lovely shoulder bag with a lot more room than you’d imagine, lined with the usual blue and black Rebecca Minkoff interior. Above is a shot of the front, which features the zippers with tassels and a clip lock in the front. You can open that for a small pocket… perfect for keeping notes, lists… flat things (you don’t want the front to bulge.. that would just be bizarre).
The Rebecca Minkoff Embossed M.A.C. Clutch retails for $350. I believe mine was $212.00 at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (which is now over… eek) and I had one of those Nordstrom Notes giving me another $20 off. You can also purchase this at Zappos.
… and yes, I bought some Chanel too (to be reviewed).
