THOSE OH-SO-FAMOUS HANDBAGS: And lots more. How do we put this? People want those stud-bedecked purses, oh do they want the purses; The Thread at NBC New York reported a line "that stretched halfway down the block" at the Rebecca Minkoff New York sample sale. Good thing the LA version of the sale is stretching out to three, lengthy, apparel-and-accessory-browsing days. FRIDAY, MAY 21 THROUGH SUNDAY, MAY 23: Sale's on at Confederacy.
