Let’s go to my yacht in the West Keys, ride my jet skis. I spied 2 Rebecca Minkoff bags in Key West, including the one hanging off my shoulder. One of many so-thoughtful presents from my boy, the Rebecca Minkoff E-Zip Clutch with detachable shoulder strap is like my new best friend these days. I’ve never owned a Minkoff bag, although I’ve had my eye on the Morning-After bag for some time now, so I was really super excited when I unwrapped this one (he threw in the cashmere Missoni hat I had been eyeing at I MISS YOU VINTAGE in the bag’s inside pocket – ugh, heart palpitations!).
So here I am in Key West reppin’ my Minkoff bag when I see another fashionable girl toting around a similar model from the Minkoff collection. Nodding at each other’s great taste in American designer pieces, we parted ways; I to Margheritaville, she to Cuba. OK, not true. But she did have the bag. Because Key West is so laid back and as a city on the whole, inebriated – I paired the Minkoff E-Zip with a pair of J Brand cigarette jeans, a knitted white t-shirt from Zara, Birkenstocks, and a random nautical-striped sweater I put on when I realized the wind was raping me. We took a convertible down to the Keys, which is a gorgeous drive (minus the wind). Try the 7 mile bridge with the top down, sun shining. Seriously.
If you’re ever in Key West make sure you catch the sunset. It’s the most beautiful thing on earth. They have designated “sunset” watching areas along the water. Also, try the Key Lime pie! We sampled the local delicacy at Kermit’s Key Lime Pie shop! They make everything and anything with key limes – from jelly to cookies to bbq sauce. For the gentleman readers, be sure to pick up an Harley Davidson Key West t-shirt. I did for mine (even though it’s nothing compared to the Minkoff/Missoni double bill).
In case you’re wondering where Mr. Eurotrash bought my Minkoff E-Zip clutch – he visited one of our favourite boutiques in Toronto: A2Zane. Owner and handbag specialist, Zane Aburaneh, helped pick out the perfect eurotrash clutch and I can’t thank him enough! If you haven’t visited Zane’s store yet, (753 Queen St West) be sure to soon – I guarantee you will fall in love with it.
