    Default The Affair by Rebecca Minkoff


    I'm pretty much obsessed with anything vintage or has the appearance that it came from the past. Era's of our past fascinate me to the point I think I was truly born in another era and have perhaps been reincarnated. Who knows, but one thing is for sure I'm definitely an old fashion kind of gal, especially when it comes to stylish pieces.

    Ever since I can remember, I've always wanted a Chanel bag. My Grandmother and my Aunt were true fashionista's and I always remember seeing them carrying about the coveted bags. The chains, the quilted patterns, everything screams gorgeous about a Chanel bag. As with any fashionable piece though, all Chanel bags come with a hefty price. Any time I spend a lot of money on a bag I always turn to Louis Vuitton, one of my all time favorite designers.

    When I came across the Rebecca Minkoff "Affair" Bag my mouth dropped. It was just like a Chanel bag but much prettier and with lots of gold hardware, which we all know I'm a huge fan of. Best part about it was that it was much more affordable than a Chanel bag and a little more edgy.

    You can purchase the Rebecca Minkoff “Affair” Bag at Shop Bop for $325. Great price for such a beauty!

    I was carrying mine yesterday and today. I love it! But I still can't figure out where to put that tassel...

    why not where it is shown on the pic? Hooked into one of the leather straps woven through the chain...

    B, you never figured out how to clip it on?

    Someone actually mentioned that over in BB also. Ome said "i had this bag and i couldnt figure out how to put the tassel on!" Weird..

    Well the clip won't actually clip onto the chain. The opening for the clip part will not fit around the entire chain. If you try to clip it onto just a link of the chain, the clip cannot close all the way (the chain is just too chubby). I see pictures of it with the clip clipped onto the leather strand that it woven through the chain. I tried attaching it like that, but the leather strand starts to stretch out. It also pulls enough where the chain starts to have a kink in it and it looks weird. I'm really not sure what RM was thinking when designing the clip for the tassel. Anyway, I mentioned on here before that I wanted to get a small gold tone chain to loop around the chain strap and then clip the tassel onto that. I think people had said they thought that would look weird, but I think I might still try it.

    That would be a good idea worth trying out, although it would be really hard to find that perfect gold color to match. What about a black tone chain? It might be less eye-catching than a bright gold chain. Keep us updated
