Winter storm Jonas has officially arrived to the East Coast! Though I’ve narrowly escaped it by vacationing in Texas (follow along on Instagram and Snapchat: username QueSeraSahra on both!) that doesn’t mean I can’t commiserate. Growing up in New England I saw my fair share of record-breaking blizzards and have learned that the key to staying warm is a good coat; and even better when it can be a stylish one. Z got me this jacket for my birthday from TheRealReal, an online consignment shop full of designer goodies that have been authenticated and thoroughly checked to ensure its condition.

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.
It was an amazing experience and I had so much fun!
