Depends what you like!! You can't really go wrong with any of the colours... I'd say maybe a black with basketweave?? The classic!

^^ The basket weave is fierce and always looks classic, also the new colors come out soon so perhaps a nice summer shade?

i am newbie as well and wondering which to get - either the MAB or MAM. So hard to decide! Is MAB just too big for a gal who's pretty petite? I am leaning towards the black basket weave..

Black basketweave! The leather is super soft, the basketweave trim is a RM signature, and you'll use it tons!

I'm 5'4" and don't find the MAB too big at all & they work better as a shoulder bag. The MAMs with the old harware are a little snug on the shoulder, unless you're very petite and/or thin.

I agree with the Black Basketweave; you cannot go wrong with that bag! It will serve you so well in so many occasions! I would go with the MAM size though, if this will be your first RM bag.

I don't mean to hijack this post but I'm also thinking of purchasing my first Rebecca Minkoff bag. Why do you suggest the MAM instead of the regular if it's your first purchase?
