I am a huge fan of Rebecca Minkoff’s designs, and even better, she was a guest judge on Season 1 of “Project Accessory!” The Minkoff creation I’m sharing with you today embodies a huge trend in the world of accessories this season: the brightly colored handbag.

Adorable finishing touches like the unexpected leopard print lining and extra-long zipper pulls just seal the deal.
