Rebecca Minkoff Mini Bags In Lilac & Mint

(Mini Mac in LilacMini 5 Zip in Mint)

Those of you who are a fan of my FaceBook page will already know about this as I post to my social media accounts before I do my blog, but I thought it was about time I posted here too! It’s mine and my boyfriends 5 year anniversary coming up in a couple of weeks and he wanted to get me something special, I originally said no to a Rebecca Minkoff bag as it’s expensive, but he twisted my arm, so I had the choice between the Lilac and Mint, both of which I love.

I did order the Lilac shade and it arrived a few days ago, it’s actually a lot heavier than I was expecting due to the chain and although it’s pretty, it just doesn’t wow me like I thought it would, but then I haven’t tried wearing it with an outfit. My question is though, which would you have picked? The Lilac Mini Mac or the Mint Mini 5 Zip?

I am obsessed with Mint at the moment and I do think it’s gorgeous, but I’m unsure. After spending time looking at and admiring the Lilac one, I do like it, just not as much as I thought, but then I’m not sure if I would feel exactly the same way about the Mint one if I ordered it. The unfortunate thing is that I have to order it from the US, so after customs/taxes/shipping etc it’s not easy to just return it. What would you have picked? Or do any of you own these bags?

    Hi Lorna!

    The lilac Mini MAC is gorgeous, you made a good choice with that one! I do think it suits your style more than the Mini 5 Zip (just my opinion though). It’s also more versatile – you can use it for casual or dressed up occasions. The Mini 5 Zip is lovely too, but a bit more quirky (although there’s nothing wrong with that!) and the many fabric zip pulls do get dirty quick quickly.

    Hope you enjoy your bag!!

    I love both colours but I think I prefer the mint because of the zip detail šŸ™‚

    I would have maybe chosen the mint one! I’ve been thinking to buy it actually, in mint or maybe even pink… šŸ˜€ Perfect for the summer for sure! It would be nice to see it in your outfits soon. šŸ™‚ And that’s a really nice gift from your boyfriend, lucky you! šŸ˜‰
