One recent stormy NYC evening I attended the Rebecca Minkoff R&Em Spring 2011 handbag party held in Chelsea. The event was an experience, bringing together some of the top bloggers of the NYC area. The party was in honor of the release of their spring lookbook featuring miss Keiko Lynn, who I personally follow on BlogLovin and am hugely in love with.
I walked in to my jacket being taken, hugs and kisses from friends, and champagne being handed to me. Fruit and pastries were also available as guests mingled, oggling the new collection.
It was so great to see Yanil and Janique, who I’ve both seen rather recently. It was also great to meet even more amazing bloggers, including Nicole of Black Shoes Diary and Clotaire of Spenderella who’s an international blogger!
As you can see, we’re all clutching our brand new gifts, courtesy of Rebecca Minkoff. Yanil and I both opted for the same black satchel, while Clotaie and Nicole for straw bags and clutches.The event also boasted bouquets of flowers for us to build ourselves. We could pick from unbloomed tuplis, roses, babies breath, and other spring flowers to brighten the stormy air.
The rest of the collection was stunning, a perfect mix of punk meets classics with studding, prints, furs, and pinks.
Totally dying for these faux fur bags….
All of these great bags are sold exclusively at Macy’s and Macy’s.com, and are fairly well priced.

A few of the nice ladies I met at IFB and I decided to meet up for brunch this Sunday to go over some very exciting plans for the future of NYC Bloggers! We went to Cafeteria, this amazing delicious eatery on 17th street in Chelsea.

While Munroe of Fashion Steele NY and Yanil drank the classic blackberry lemonade, I added vodka to mine. If you’re into drinking before noon, I suggest it, it’s delicious! Munroe ordered the Macaroni and Cheese Spring rolls, which I was definitely skeptical about but after the first bite….well, the rest is history. If you ever get the chance to go to Caefteria you MUST try them!
