This weekend was the annual Los Gatos Christmas Parade. It's a fabulous event for the town to celebrate together and have a great time. It was particularly chilly and wet outside, but we bundled up and walked into downtown. We started the morning with a few celebratory drinks and finished with a gourmet lunch. Not bad for a gloomy day. I really appreciate living in such a beautiful and charming town. I couldn't imagine living anywhere else!

I also appreciate my new Rebecca Minkoff  handbag courtesy of Stefani Bags. I've been coveting a sleek black handbag for over a year and this one is beautiful. It's the perfect size and the gold hardware suits my style. Stefani Bags has an amazing collection of bags and their customer service is excellent.

How cool! I've been admiring your blog (and amazing style!) for a few months now and had no idea you were in the same area. I just moved from San Jose to San Francisco to go to school. I agree that Los Gatos has a certain charm to it! You're a lucky gal to be living there. :D

You are just looking amazing in all of these photos and it seems to have been a great day.
Also the bag is super nice, I always am looking for classic black bags with a twist and the blue zipper just makes it so unique.

A great option is the Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Mini!!
It's got a similar satchel-like shape with the rocker attitude and is more affordable but still good quality.

You can find it on eBay:

The leather is so soft!! Such a classic, iconic bag with an attitude!!
Love it!!! (ipad)
