My New Fav Satchel!

10 Mar

For the past month,I kept hearing about this Marc by Marc Jacobs  Top handled color block roomy but not huge satchel. I looked it up online, saw tons of great reviews and started to get a little excited. The only thing is I’m pretty much covered in the color blocked department. The last thing I need is another bright handbag.  I visited the Marc Jacobs store and learned the bag was also made in solid black as well as grey. okay okay I really don’t need a black handbag either,but grey???….I could use a grey bag for sure and it does match almost everything. I did the usual FJ(fashionista justification) of the bag…. I have no other grey bags,well besides my clutch, but no full size bag, this bag has mixed silver and gold tone hardware so it’ll match most of my jewelry, and besides that this bag could last for years and has a top handle and a strap for different carrying options and is so cute pheeew!!! After going over all of that in my head, I felt like that was enough justification so I ordered the bag and it arrived today!!!!! YAY. It’s just as beautiful as I had imagined. The color online appears a lot darker but the guy at the MJ store warned me of that. It is actually a light/medium grey color and I cannot wait to wear this runnin’ all around town!  Here are a few pics of the color options and one of my bag(compared to the dark grey image online).  The name of the bag is Bob’s Memphis Trip. The fuchsia & red and the green & blue color block versions($528) are available at Nordstrom. The grey version($528) is available at Bloomingdales. The black version can be special ordered at a Marc Jacobs store.

    I have got four Marc by Marc Jacobs bags in the meantime, and I’m sure the number will be increasing… I always tell myself that next time I should buy another label, maybe something more ‘serious’ like Savatore….but the problem with MJ is, that they are way to cute, well crafted, you have an ecletic choice and they are quite affordable (as oppose to Salvatore, Balenciaga and so on) I love the ‘petal to the metal line’….

      Yeah I think this is my 5th actually. I LOVE his bags. They really are cute. I do however, love my Balenciaga city bag toooo. I’m sad that after I bought it they started making it with rose gold hardware that is gorgeous! I have never owned a Ferragamo bag although They made a wicker day bag about 10 years ago that I loved.

    Funnily enough, I’ve been thinking about getting a red or hot pink bag, this one hits both nails on the head. I’ve always shied away from bright handbags but having fallen in love with and purchased a cobalt blue Prada bag, it’s made me appreciate how much of an impact a coloured bag can make. That said though, I have a beautiful Sonia by Sonia Rykiel pale grey canvas tote that will never go out of style, mostly because grey is so classic. You purchased absolutely the right colour, wish you well to wear it!

    I also love the wicker bags Ferragamo makes and also hope to own one one day. I don’t know if you saw the beige raffia/black suede flats Ferragamo did last year, I think you’d have liked them very very much!

      Yes This grey bag will get much use, so excited about it. I did see those flats last year and loved them:) I bet that blue bag of yours is amazing, such an easy way to add the pop of color without having to think about it huh?:)
