Last Thursday I attended the Kansas City Halls event that hosted designer Rebecca Minkoff!  This was truly special for me since my Rebecca Minkoff bag was really my first introduction to designer bags when my mom gifted it to me for my birthday last year!  I wear my little Mini M.A.C. all the time, it’s so great for traveling and it fits all of my essentials just perfectly.  The event was basically a meet and greet that featured her newest line of handbags, shoes, clothing, accessories and more!  And Halls outdid themselves again with fancy hor douerves, yummy cocktails, and great music (not to mention the Christmas decorations are already starting to go up too – scary!).  But first things first, just wanted to share with you the outfit I wore to the event…. of course I had to wear my beloved Rebecca Minkoff bag!  Thanks Meggy for taking these pics for me!





Outfit Details

Top: Joie (love this floral top so much and it’s on sale!) Skirt: Target Shoes: Target {similar} Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Necklace: Lisa Stewart Sunglasses: Sole Society

And here is my claim to fame… a picture (thanks to Carrie from Fashionable Way) with the one and only Rebecca Minkoff and some of my fave KC fashion blogger friends (Lisa from Peridot Skys, Meg from Chasing Davies, Carrie from Fashionable Way,Erin from Pretty, Polished, Perfect).


Rebecca was such a sweetheart in person and has an amazing fashion sense!  I was good that night and didn’t buy anything, but I am definitely eyeing a few pieces from her new line… like this mini M.A.B. tote and these leopard booties!

Have you ever met/talked to a famous designer before?  What was your impression of them?

    What a Stunning Outfit. Worthy of a front row seat at NY Fashion Week, I mean it. The Skirt & Blouse are Gorgeous. I have been eyeing that same/similar Blouse from Old Navy. And OMG Rebecca Minkoff. Love her clothing.
