Rebecca Minkoff 'Cupid' Satchel
Adorable bag, horrible hardware
The RM Cupid bag is my fourth RM handbag, and I love it for its buttery leather and different hardware - it's much different looking than my two MABs and one MAC.
I bought it last May before moving to London, specifically to use in London. I didn't start using it on a daily basis until late June, and within a month the hardware connecting a handle clasp to the handle itself broke, making the bag un-useable. The handbag sat in my closet for months until a friend went to the U.S. and I had her bring back to the U.S. to return directly to RM for repair in November.
I used the bag daily from late November until late March, when I noticed that another bit of hardware was about to break - the large metal loop that the handle clasp hangs onto is coming off its metal plate backing. Now it sits in my closet again, un-useable..
I am incredibly frustrated with this, especially since sorting these issues from abroad is costly and much more difficult. I will be contacting Nordstrom to request an exchange for another bag - I should not have to repair a bag's hardware twice in the space of 5 months of actual use.
I would recommend purchasing another RM bag with more robust hardware, such as the classic MAB.. Or perhaps another brand altogether.
Better in person than in picture
I already liked the Bag online but wasn't sure how she would suit me (im pretty petite 5ft, 110 lbs) when she was delivered to me she was more beautiful in person than on the website and the size was PERFECT. I absolutely LOVE my Rebecca Minkoff. The leather is shiny and ooh soo soft. the studs and frills on the zipper are pretty poppin and stylish. I always bought Michael Kors bags but she might just be my new favorite. Now only if she could lower her prices a tad I'd be able to purchase more of her stuff :)
Gorgeous Bag !
I just received this bag and it is so beautiful ! The color is bright ,pure, soothing and soft. The design is very edgy, yet not too sharp :) I am not a fan of stud, but the stud on this bag is just right, making this bag alive! A perfect for the coming spring :) And it definitely worth the price.
Color wearing off
I loved this purse, in red, when I bought it and received many compliments. After using it for six weeks the color is wearing off of the purse and I'm so disappointed.
