Great day, everyone!
Today, I’m sharing with you my recent visit at my favorite local outlet mall here in Northern Virginia: Potomac Mills.
If you’ve been reading Hip Mama’s Place for a while, you know how much I love shopping at Potomac Mills. It’s got over 200 stores, including my favorite ones: Neiman Marcus Last Call, Saks Fifth OFF 5th, Bloomingdale’s – The Outlet Store, Kate Spade New York, Ann Taylor Loft and more! This mall also features 25 eateries for when you need to grab a bite to eat while you’re shopping, plush seating areas and the huge AMC Potomac Mills 18 Theaters where my family and I go to watch the latest movies!
Recently, I was invited to check out the mall’s Annual Handbag Sale and I was thrilled to go! Not only do I get a nice excuse to go shopping for the day at one of my favorite places to shop, I also get to check out the awesome handbag sale!
During my visit, I immediately went to my favorite store, Bloomingdale’s – The Outlet Store, where I know I’ll find my favorite handbag brands and styles on sale! Let me tell you, the one thing I love about shopping at an outlet mall like Potomac Mills is getting a bang for my bucks! The handbags are already on sale at 25% to 65% off, but with the in-store promotions from these participating retailers, you’ll save another 15% to 40% on top of the already heavily discounted handbags. Now, how awesome is that?
Oh my, there were so many lovely handbags to choose from – all at prices I’m happy to pay for! I’m very picky when it comes to shopping for accessories like handbags, shoes and jewelry so I was at the store for almost two hours. Eventually, I opted for the really cute and stylish Rebecca Minkoff Marlowe Mini in Navy/Tan/Black multi color cross body bag. I love it, and I got it at the Bloomingdale’s – The Outlet Store at Potomac Mills!
What’s In My Bag?
I’m not too crazy for oversized tote bags or satchels, although I do have a few of them. For this summer, I wanted a small handbag for those quick shopping trips or lunch or dinner dates I do with my family. So my Rebecca Minkoff Marlowe Mini cross body bag is just perfect! Now, what would you find in my small summer handbag?
I don’t like to carry too much in my handbag but my absolute must haves include my pressed powder, lip gloss, sunglasses, my iPhone, a pen and a small change wallet. Depending on how long I will be out, I will also have a small sunscreen spray, a facial mist and a lip balm to protect my face and lips from over drying under the sun, and a travel size hand lotion.
I’ve worn my cute Rebecca Minkoff Marlowe Mini cross body bag a few times since I bought it and I have gotten many compliments from family and friends. Can you believe I got this bag from Potomac Mills for under $100 (normally $265!)? This is my “IT” bag for the summer and I am super happy with my purchase! And you guys, you need to run to Potomac Mills now to find your own “IT” bag for the summer, while it’s still on! Remember, the Annual Handbag Sale at Potomac Mills is only good until June 30th.. so hurry and go!
