Rebecca Minkoff

October 14, 2013

And just like that, we were old college roommates! 

Last Thursday Rebecca Minkoff was in town for a meet and great at a local store Halls. I have mentioned the store before  here   I met up with a few of my girlfriends on the plaza for a little photo session before the event.  We always try to take advantage of a get together to take outfit picks for one another!  The store was bustling with shoppers and a few local designers. We headed to the mens department first to check out some of the menswear. Well that and the fact that one of the girls has a thing for soccer players, and there were several downstairs!  Haha!  We met designer Aurelien Collin.  Friendly, and a bit shy, he has some very cool pieces that I think are unisex. 

 It was also the opening night for Kansas City Fashion Week and several people were heading straight over to the show after this event. 

There was a bar set up with cocktails especially named for Rebecca, a DJ, and trays of hors d'oeurves being served. A few of the girls enjoyed mocktails as well! 

I, of course, had to make a stop by the Jo Malone counter for a sample of the new fragrances.  I love the new fragrance Elderflower and Goseberry.

There was a line to meet Rebecca, and the store was a little hot, but we didn't care.

She was darling.  Slender, oh my god was she ever slender.  Her legs were the size of my bicep, and I use the word bicep loosely here,  if that tells you  anything! Standing next to her made me feel large! But she is pretty.  Flawless completion and a sweet personality, she made each and every lady feel like they were the only one she was there to visit with.  A genuine appreciation for her fans, that is a big score for me!

We were privileged to view her fall line and shop and there were several items I would love to add to my closet. Lets just say a certain jacket, and shoes!

I am sure it is nothing to meet designers if you live on either coast, but in the Midwest, its not a usual sighting! Thanks Rebecca Minkoff for visiting Kansas City.  Have you met any designers, and who?  Did it change what you thought of their designs?
