    I RM! My Nikki is my FAVE bag!!

    I have had a few QC issues with MABs but I don't ever plan on getting another so it's all good! lol
    Rebecca and Catalina have been nothing but nice and went out of their way to make sure that I was satisfied. I love how involved Rebecca is with her company. I think it really says a lot for a company when the owner sends you a message asking if there is anything she can do for you.
    Two thumbs up RM!!

    I my Minkoff"s !!!! And by now I think everyone in my life knows this.... I own @ 15 different styles and colors.... Each one with it's own variations.... They all are treated like my babies.... They complete every outfit... My first RM I ever owned ( black and pewter MAM ) is still by far my favorite... Every cent very well spent......

    I have had over 30+ RM's and have only had 1 mac strap break wich Rebecca holded within 24 hours and sent me a replacement strap. I still buy her bags though because I think her leathers are some of the best leather avaiable they maintain really well. I don't go over my bags with a magnifying glass, but with that said there have been some really big issues lately Kate spade snaps on the devotes comes to mind. That is a pretty glaring problem, but really get over it it's a handbag for F's sake!

    Your enthusiasm has alwasy been great!

    MrsShoe...you are totally right! People need to get over it. Actually, the Kate Spade snap issues wouldn't bother me, because you can't actually see it. Poor QA process, but it wouldn't affect the overall look of the bag. I think I'd have more of a problem with blatantly mismatched panels, b/c I'm not a big fan of a "patch"-like appearance lol.
    Some people have been talking about the issues with the stamped woven bags. I just went to see if mine had barely visible stamping or the stamping running straight across. Well there were some parts that weren't as nice as others, but so what? I'm going to use it, not put it in a museum on display. Rebecca Minkoff even notes on her tag that there are different characteristics/variations on the leather/bags making each one unique. hahaha-- It's kind of like her forewarning, that no bag is perfect, and it's never going to be!

    ^Agreed.

    PS: I was pondering a week or so ago....what if those snaps had been Prada snaps? I wonder if there would so much fuss, kwim?

    Yeah, i think so too. I think a lot of the fuss has to do with the fact that they are "KATE SPADE" snaps. Were they to have been Prada, Miu Miu, or....HERMES(!) for example, I dont think there would any fuss at all. Of course this is speculation, but in thinking the whole thing through, I really feel its not so much about the snaps, as it is a sense of handbag elitism, if that makes any sense. Like OMG, eww, KS snaps, kwim?

    Really??? I had thought it was just the hardware? Thats awesome about the leather though. Hmm, what bags are you interested in?

    I agree

    it's different is hw is falling off and handles snapping off of course, haha, but there is a point where it's like.. a little too crazy. It just depends on the situation, I have to admit completely mismatched pannels is kind of a turn off.. but that's only on Nikki's and I don't really like that bag style in general. Reminds me too much of Frankenstein haha with different skins.

    ^You'd be surprised. It happens all the time on handbag forums, IMO. One or two outspoken girls will say something, the minions will follow, and suddenly its all out chaos. Shakes head.
