My good friend and fellow blogger Alyson from Crushing on Clothes had a fun idea for she and I to collaborate, she wanted us to style something that we each have and love using. After several phone calls and Pinterest’ing ideas we concluded that our Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC bags had to be it. I like to call mine the “hands free essential”. Who doesn’t love shopping and walking around without the hassle of holding up your purse on your shoulder, bending your elbow to keep it on your arm, you know what I’m saying right?
Alyson and I had an amusing time walking around Pike Place Market, a favorite Seattle spot of ours, snapping photos and sharing how we each like to wear our bags. I would like to point out that I’m wearing stripes again (I know, kind of obsessed with them) and that each of our shoes match our bags, I don’t think that was consciously planned but I like the way our pictures turned out with the colors matching. Pretty much this is my everything bag, I’ve taken it all over with me, it was a lifesaver when I was in Spain last summer and it’s versatile for running errands and going out here at home. I think my favorite part about the bag is the chain, it makes the bag almost feel like jewelry when it’s around my shoulders.
To read more about why Alyson loves her Mini MAC and how she went about styling it be sure to stop by her blog. I know I had a lot of fun doing this so who knows, maybe you’ll see Alyson and I working on something else in the coming months.
