On September 12, I attended the Rebecca Minkoff Spring Summer 2011 Presentation at Lincoln Center during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, where famed fashion blogger Rumi Neely of Fashion Toast was modeling. Truth be told, I didn't recognize Rumi even though I was looking for her specifically, knowing full well she'd be in attendance. You'd think after all these years of seeing her face on her blog I would have recognized her instantaneously but no, walked right past her, multiple times. It wasn't until my friend Nitrolicious told me to check Luckmag's twitpic of Rumi that I realized my absentmindedness.
Nonetheless I can say with certainty Rumi looked beautiful—so model-esque she blended right in! You can pre-order her dress, The Rumi dress ($325), and the same style bag she was carrying, The Quilted Affair Bag in black ($325), from rebeccaminkoff.com today.
