Rebecca Minkoff S/S 2011

IMG_8332

Last September, Rebecca Minkoff’s spring 2011 presentation at Lincoln Center’s “Box” showcased a collection exactly like most of us have come to expect: A mix of girly and sweet, chains and studs, mixed in with ladylike handbags and dresses. Only this season, there were shoes too!

Sneak Peak: Rebecca Minkoff
One of my personal favorites.

The collection was influenced by “a woman yearning for glamour, transfixed by reconstructed vintage and ’70s-inspired frocks.”

Rebecca’s collections never disappoint. With the addition of more variety of styles, there is literally a bag for everyone in her Spring 2011 line.

Botkier Spring 2011 Preview

IMG_5454

Earlier this week, I was invited to view Botkier’s Spring 2011 bag and shoe collections. Not surprisingly, I’m now lusting over a handful of new handbags, and a few pairs of sandals! I’ve always been one partial to mostly black accessories, but I’m starting to think this might just be the collection that breaks that habit.

Another favorite of mine:

My camera really didn’t do this color justice! It’s a beautiful bright neon yellow-green.

Matching accessories:

Made from the same materials, and in the same colors, the shoes and accessories all perfectly compliment the bags.

Botkier’s Spring collection has a bag for everyone. Bags come in every possible size, tons of styles, and a wide variety of colors to choose from. From bohemian cut out leather, to neon, to snake skin. I love that whether you want something classic, flashy, or somewhere in between you can find it in this collection… and you can buy the shoes to match!

The first shipment hits stores in January! I can’t wait, even though I have a feeling this collection is going to be deadly for my bank account. : )

Thanks so much to Shine Media and Botkier for inviting me! And for the beautiful purple wallet I took home.
