Handbag Review: Rebecca Minkoff Hudson Moto Mini

As well as being a self-confessed beauty junkie, I am very much equally a Bag Lady, in that I am obsessed with handbags. Having splurged on a Michael Kors Selma last year, I put myself on a bag-ban and pretty much stuck to it all year, bar one little relapse - a cheeky Asos purchase, but it was a cute light blue laser cut clutch little number that was around £12 so it was a bargain I could not resist. If you, like me, are a handbag hoarder, you'll understand that even though I was on a bag-ban, I still was very much on the lookout for my next bag-conquest, so continued to stalk websites such as Selfridges, Net-a-Porter, Shopbop et al.

So it was on one such stalking venture last month, a little after my 1 year anniversary with my MK Selma, that I discovered that Shopbop were having a 25% off everything, and immediately I pounced on a Rebecca Minkoff bag that I had had my eye on ever since I saw Fleur de Force and Essie Button reviewed theirs last year. And behold, I give you my gorgeous Rebecca Minkoff Mini Moto Hudson in the shade Biscuit.

I've now had it for a week or so and I can tell you now it is L-O-V-E. it's a cross body number made from a very sturdy Saffiano leather, which is great for me as I tend to bash my bags around a bit, as much as I love them. It has gorgeous rose-gold hardware with this clip enclosure at the front, which at first was slightly annoying to open the bag, but once you get used to it it's fine, and if you're travelling in a busy city and worried about security, ain't nobody gettin' in there. It also has a magnetic closure so if you need to get into your bag quickly or can't be bothered using the clasp, your bag is sort of secure.

Inside it has a really slim front compartment under the flap, and then two larger compartments inside. The compartments and underside of the flap are lined with a funky black and white Rebecca Minkoff motif which I really like. As it's quite a compact bag I can't actually fit my usual Michael Kors longline wallet in there, so I actually just keep my essential cards and cash in the little compartment on the inside.

Overall this bag is a must have in any girls collection as its super stylish and versatile. I had a quick squiz on the interwebs and sadly it is sold out almost everywhere, I did find it in orange on the Bloomingdales website and it is on sale, so run, don't walk if you want to get your hands on this beauty.

What's your fashion-vice? Do you live for shoes or are you a Bag Lady like me?
